And Here I Thought You Were Giving Me A Compliment

Filed under: Self-Absorbtive Tendencies — Paul @ 5:32 pm

From Reason’s Brickbats:

Starting July 1, anyone wishing to buy beer in a Tennessee convenience store or supermarket will have to show photo ID. In an effort to stamp out underage drinking, lawmakers have required that everyone – no matter how gray, bald or wrinkled – must prove they are over 21. They say it will get clerks into the habit of routinely asking for ID.

I still get carded now that I’m twice the legal age, and I took it as a compliment. Now, stores are “carding everyone to offend no one,” but I’m still offended because carding is no longer a compliment.
