I stole a driver's license for this?

Stupid Rainbow foods clerk! I stopped on my way home because we needed toilet paper and also to pick up some chips and stuff. After standing in the SLOWEST express lane ever I finally got up there. I wrote a check for $18.something, and bagged my stuff. Cashier chick asked for my license and I figured fine, I probably haven't written a check there in a while. I didn't expect it to be any kind of big deal.
So this dumbass annoying cashier is looking at my license & calls over one of the other cashiers and says "does this look right to you? Shouldn't there be a colored bar here?"
I say "Yes, it is a valid license. It expires in July so it's four years old. They've probably changed the design since then since they change it every two years or so"
She s-l-o-w-l-y wanders over to another cashier who compares it with her apparently newer license. Then she wanders s-l-o-w-l-y back past us to the powerball counter. No one there seems to believe that my license looks right either. She says "maybe someone at the bank knows" and starts to wander, yup, you guessed it, s-l-o-w-l-y toward the bank branch.
"How about if I just pay cash" I said.
She looks at me like she doesn't believe that I would have $18, and says sure.
If it wasn't the express lane and there weren't about 10 people behind me marveling at her stupidity I would have made her keep wandering until she found someone who told her that it was indeed valid and that she was a dumbass.
The chick behind me summed it up pretty well. She said "If I was gonna use a fake license I would buy more than $18 dollars worth of stuff and I would write the check for cash back."
After paying cash I ran next door to the liquor store. My license was valid there...

Then there's my mom, who airport security didn't notice had an expired licence... until she was coming home. Burbank airport security noticed. They must have run the sensor wand over her like 10 times.

Dude, she's a grandma going home. She's not going to sprout metal blades like Wolverine. Not a threat to national security. Let her on the damn plane! They did, eventually. But it took a while. And that was only because it's expired.... the picture on it is still her, it was still issued by the state of Minnesota, etc. Oy.

Sorry you had an attack of the stupid people. I agree with the chick behind you. $18 is not worth forging for.

-kerry, in a state where you can't write a check for anything...
