    Had a pretty good time. My wife decides she want some wine. SO we make our selection. Get to the register they ask for ID, as I was about to produce mine they started to scan it. I pull it back and asked "what the person at the register what was she going to do?" She wanted to scan it to check my age I said hell no you are not scanning my ID. I will give you my birth date but you are not scanning my ID. The check out girl said that was what they were supposed to do now. So my wife looks at me kind of pissy and pulls out her ID.

    So whats the deal with that?

    There's a chain of quickie marts that does that. At first it really pissed me off but figured what the hell I wanted to get drunk. I don't think there's any information in the bar code that's not printed on the D.L.

    Most likely because she can't do the math in her head in order to figure out your age. They don't know how to 'make change' either . .. . ever more reliant on technology. Dumb.

    Technically, in some states, that practice can be challenged in court. In VA only an official of the court (police fall in this category) are legally allowed to ask for a drivers license let alone scan it.

    Bar codes are harder to counterfeit. I guess
