    I Bought Beer With My CHL Tonight

    Accidentally...

    The lady friend and I are hosting a party tomorrow for about 2 dozen friends at her home, I went out this evening to the local grocery store to purchase some libations and foodstuffs (sounds exciting huh?), some of the adult variety. I'm in my 30s, but to the high school kid working as cashier, evidently I look like I'm young enough to ask for ID (I'll be thanking him in 10 years), I was rather surprised since this almost never happens to me anymore. I pulled my license out (or so I thought) and handed it to him, a few seconds later I realized that my DL was still in my wallet (I keep my CHL behind my DL in my wallet usually). I looked up and said "oh sorry wrong card"...he just looked back and said "that's OK it's a license". Haha oh well!

    For those not from TX, the CHL looks virtually identical to a DL or ID card, also it has both your DL/ID # and DOB on it. It was pretty amusing actually now thinking about it.

    I have a similar funny story.

    I had just received my Commercial Drivers License (Class B) and the cashier had apparently never seen "one of these weird ones". She accused me of having a fake ID and called over her manager to check it out. The manager had apparently never seen one either so I produced my CHL. Both of their eyes got really big, then they apologized and proceded to sell me my Shiner Bock.

    No big deal, but yeah my CDL and CHL look almost identical.

    Shiner, the only beer I'll drink. I have to one up you though. I didn't have my DL with me to get my marriage license. My wife was driving. The only ID I had on me was my CHL so I used that. The marriage license says DL# for her and CHL# by my name.

    Maryland DL is predominantly blue and white as is Florida CHL.

    Happened to me twice. I now keep it behind the Utah which is orange and white.

    A little awkward around here this week. Mrs. Niks got her Golden Buckeye Card in the mail.

    At 67, some young clerks ask for ID to be funny when I buy adult beverages. I show them my U.S. Army retired ID card and they usually mumble, "Thank you for your service."

    I did't plan on using my CHL but we stopped at the courthouse after work and it was almost time for it to close. That's ok it makes for a funny story.

    At least they recognized what it was. I've had clerks look at it and ask what it was.
