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...
