    Default Walmart wants to SCAN my drivers license! WTF!?!?

    I was in the Walmart on the north side of State College, picking up cat food and shampoo and I decided to waltz over to the sporting goods and grab 4-5 boxes of Winchester 100rnd value pack 9mm. As usual, nobody was working there, and after dinging the bell a thousand times, somebody finally showed up at the counter.
    I told him I wanted some ammo, and he said, "I need to scan your drivers license." I asked, "What the hell for?" He said for proof of age. I said, "Uh, you can look at it but you can't scan it." He insisted on scanning it for anyone who looks 27 or younger. I told him that's bullshit, I'm over 40 and I look nowhere near 27. I said NO thanks, and walked away.

    Looks like a source of inexpens... I mean, less expensive ammo has dried up if they institute that here.

    I'm not giving them anything to scan.



    That said, how hard is it going to be to get folks to accept the "REAL ID" thing?
    If you want/need something badly enough, most will comply.

    OK, back on topic...

    Hmmmmm....

    I'd just be like "Have at it...". I don't care. Do you even know what sort of shit is even stored there on the scanable strip? What do they gain?
    And along the same lines....the kid behind the counter can, in no way, seem to benefit from scanning (assuming it was a scam).

    I wouldn't mind. I want cheap ammo.

    This is complete and total BS! After my last visit to WM I swear to god I have darkened their door for the last time!!!
    Just like you said, I waited forever for someone to show up to the ammo counter. Then waited almost 45 minutes to check out with the other 5 things we'd bought that day.
    Of course they only had 2 of the 25 registers open, and lines 20 people deep.

    And to think that for this we shipped all our Manufacturing jobs to China!!!

    Just rub your license on that thing they use to deactivate the security tags in merchandise.....or a strong magnet. Then they can scan all they want, nothing will be there and they'll have to actually look at it, anyway.

    While we're on the subject, what all IS stored on that stripe?
