it was just kinda funny
i have a young looking face. most likely due to being overweight (chubby cheeks) and avoiding the sun like it’s death. nice skin… and on this day i happened to also be wearing makeup. so, that is your background for this interaction.
Customer: “I’d like a pack of Newport 100s.”
Me: “Sure, I just need your ID.”
Customer: with attitude “I’m 27 years old!”
Me: “And I’m 33.”
Customer: eyes wide “What???”
Customer: “Alright then… good point.” And he hands me his ID without any other argument.
though i am usually annoyed when people argue against showing me their ID, this time it was amusing enough and it ended happy. Plus, it boosted my confidence LOL.
