I am having a difficult time thinking of the right title for this post. The reason for my bafflement is my experience this afternoon at the local Target store. I needed a few things that were on sale and also felt I should get some inexpensive cough medicine, generic brand with an expectorant usually called DM. My cough seemed to be back and I am hoping it is only allergies. Anyway, I found the right size and went to check out . The cashier scanned my items and bagged them and then she holds up the cough medicine and says do you have proof? Proof, I look at her questioning proof? She is kind enough to explain that the stores policy is to scan your license for record keeping of certain medicines. Luckily, in my pocket I had my debit card and license. I don’t carry a purse for safety reasons and sometimes I only carry on my person my debit card and car keys.
It has been over fifty years since I have been carded and I am not flattered by any means. Just curious if this has happened to anyone else?
