Wegmans - Wegman's booze proofing illegal
Here is the latest insanity from Wegmans, a store we used to like.I was in the process of checking out.
I had handed her my credit card to pay. I had a case of Corona beer and the checker asked to see my ID. . They have a policy, that I have never seen anywhere else where they check the ID of EVERYONE buying booze.
Now, even forgetting that it has been decades since I was 21, I found it OK to go along and produce my ID that indeed proved that I was well over the age of 21. But now she asked to see the ID of my spouse was behind me who was not even part of the transaction. She refused on the basis that 1. she was not part of the transaction 2.
She objected because of privacy concerns and 3. because she thought such a request was perhaps even illegal to ask for the ID of someone with no rational need. Needless to say it took nearly 15 minutes to resolve with the line manager unable to break this new weird requirement and the store manager having to come down from his perch and finally after much argument, saying that he would make an exception. An exception?
If it is a "law" how can a store manager make an exception to break the law? Wegmans, no more for us! NJ law?
No mention of carding those with you who are shopping.What do you think?
