    oops! funny story

    A few weeks ago my dad was at our local mall doing some shopping he was going to buy a cd. I'm not sure what cd it was or anything, but it had a parental advisory sticker on it. When he went to pay for it, and the clerk asked to see some ID because you have to be 18 to buy a disk with parental advisory on it. Keep in mind my dad is 61 years old and the clerk was in his early twenties. My dad got kind of mad because he was obviously over 18, and probably 40 years older than the clerk. Anyway he grabbed his wallet and was staring the clerk down to try and intimidate him a little to show he was angry, and without looking he grabbed what he thought was his ID but was actually his chl. The clerk apparently thought it was a threat and he pushed the panic button and the security guards came and escorted him off the property. He wasn't carrying his gun at the time and made an honest mistake. I couldn't help but laugh at the story though.

    So he showed him a form of ID and the clerk over reacted,I would be placing a call to the store manager,letting them know that not only did he cost them a sale,but I will never be back

    All the talk about how hard it is to find a job, seems like good help is harder to find.

    ...and an official STATE form of identification at that...stupid clerk!

    Tell your dad to take it as a compliment. If I buy a few beers and ask if they need to see my ID, they just laugh out loud...that hurts!

    The story is funny, but I would be in contact with the store's owner as well as the owner of the mall. He was treated wrong and I would raise an elephant size stink about it!
    I would also write a letter to the editors of the local newspapers.

    ETA
    This is a really messed up way to treat someone and the more I think about it, the more it makes me mad. Please, for the sake of other normal people who choose to stay alive, make sure he raises hole hell about this!
