The cashier has to enter the DOB into the register, they can hit the bypass button if the customer is clearly of age but it is highly discouraged. If a cashier bypasses and the customer is not clearly of age (senior citizen) the cashier faces immediate termination. Getting asked for ID is nothing more then a company policy and not really worthy of two pages of discussion.
    Sure it is, when a Corporation's policy gets so stupid .... and think we "should" just swallow and enjoy it. It's another way to lose customers.
    I remember a guy telling me that they would not change oil... unless I gave them my home address..... I told him I'ld do that right after he gave me his home address. I no longer get my oil changed there, and a lot of other things due to their Corporate policies.... they over step their bounds quite often.

    Wally World is full of crap if you ask me. They make up rules as they go along. Locally they always ask if the 9mm or .45ACP I buy are for a handgun. I've told them, "No I use them in cake decorating" or "No they are for my machine gun". Always gets a hesitant look from the cashier. They don't know what to put in the register which I assume is asking the question.

    Bought two boxes of Winchester bonded PDX1 at Meijers on Tues., and no ID asked for. I'm 50 and look it though.

    I'll go one better; last fall or maybe it was 2009 I was asked to show ID to buy Triple 7 pellets for my muzzle loader at Bass Pro Shops in Maryland. I contested because they wanted to make a photocopy of my ID. The clerk produced a letter from their Fire Marshall requiring ID to sell Powder or pellets. I passed on the pellets, just because I am that way, I left a note at customer service realizing it is not the store's fault and I do not live in MD.

    unless they are writing down/entering your info somewhere I would take it as a compliment. Or it is just someone doing their due diligence.

    They enter the DOB into the register. Its not a big deal but some members of this forum could really benefit from some medication.
