custom tobacco

anonymous asked:

i work retail at a dollar "store" and we have to card every single customer for tobacco products, every time, no exceptions. at least twice a week i get some 80 year old customer that loses their shit. i once told a guy it was policy and he freaked out, saying it was all obama's fault. 💀 so now i just tell everyone they don't look a day over 17 and that's why i need their id.
