    The wife and I went to Walmart tonight to pick up some things. I went through the sports dept and picked up a couple of plastic ammo boxes for 45 auto. We were in the self checkout and when she scanned the ammo box the machine locked up. The guy came over and unlocked it and asked if I was 18 because you have to be 18 to buy them. My reply was, son I am plenty old enough to buy a plastic box. Just amazing.

    It's the end of the world as we know it. Me, I would never go back.

    This seems to be one of their prerequisites for employment. Scary thing is, they appear to have no trouble finding employees. I guess the adage is true..."you can't make anything idiot-proof, they just thwart your efforts by making better idiots".

    This is exactly where my plan for the mobility scooter and t-shirt that says "Tourettes" would come in handy.

    I WILL NOT SUBMIT TO AN ILLEGAL SEARCH!!!! ;)

    I always laugh at the folks who get so worked up at the receipt checkers.. Now the "Are you over 18" thing annoys me, especially when they know you're old enough. Second.. a friggin plastic ammo box?.. Geez..

    I dislike the " Are you over 18" when I am over 3 times 18 and closing on 3 times 21.

    RustySocket play nice. One reason is because it is the only or nearest place that carries what we want and need. It is not just Wal-Mart that ask these questions.

    I guess because we are all just stupid ****ers. If we were all sexual intellectuals like you the world would be a boring place.

    I'd say if he has a picture of Frank Zappa as his avatar he is old enough to purchase empty plastic boxes.

    Yes, I was around when Frank was young. In my 50's but who knows, I might look younger than 18.
