Friday I bought a pack of cigarettes. Not smart, I know.
The clerk was ringing me up. She was ready to hit the final key that would prompt me to insert my card for payment, when she stopped.
She looked at me funny and said – I have carded you before, right? You are old enough to buy cigarettes, right?
I assured her, that although my actions weren’t all that smart, I was indeed old enough to purchase cigarettes.
She was relieved and said – Oh good. I certainly did not want to sell to someone who was underage.
Yesterday I went to the ABC store and bought a bottle of Jose Cuervo tequila.
Again, prior to hitting the final key to prompt me for payment, this clerk also asked – You are old enough to make this purchase, right?
Once again, I assured her that I was more than old enough to make the purchase and she too was thankful that she wasn’t selling to someone who was underage.
I mean, who hit the jackpot? Um, me. Within 72 hours I was “carded” twice!
Granted, I obviously am not all that bright based on my purchases, but I must still look young.
Now before you try to rain on my parade by pointing out that there are signs posted stating….
I’ll take it!
After all, I am pushing 46. So to be mistaken for a 30ish year old…I am good with that.
I mean like I am really, really, really good with that.
That is all I’ve got.
It is my birthday month so I figure I should really enjoy the gifts each day holds.
Plus, as I told my dad last night – I need to relish this because, um, it cannot go on for very much longer! hahaha
