I Got Carded--At Target....
All because of this guy.
Obviously, I'm buying NyQuil because I'm sick with a cold. And because of said cold, I have not been able to sleep at all. My normally relaxing weekend was shot all to hell over the fact that I've had a scratchy sore throat, cough and stuffy nose.
That and the fact that I sleep with earplugs in my ears. Nothing is worse that having your ears plugged up, coughing and breathing through your mouth. Sounds like I'm at a bad rock concert.
I ran to Target on Sunday to get some NyQuil (the biggest bottle I could find), nose spray and tissues. I would have bought some chocolate, but after stepping on the scale that morning, I decided that it's best to just say no.
At the check out, the cashier scans my stuff and the following happens:
Cashier: Do you have an ID?
Me: Excuse me?
Cashier: For the NyQuil. I need an ID.
I gave her my ID. She zips it through the card reader (MN licenses have a magnetic strip on the back like a credit card) and hands it back to me. I pay my bill and walk out, still stunned that I had to be carded for NyQuil.
I get it that there is alcohol in NyQuil.
I get it that most cold medicines are now behind the pharmacy because of Meth Labs.
I get it.
NyQuil isn't behind the counter.
It doesn't even contain the psedo-what-ever-you-call-it that is used to make meth.
Who gets a buzz off NyQuil?
Last time I checked someone who is underage would much rather get a buzz off some cheap wine coolers than NyQuil.
