Following Procedure

It is common for stores in the US to request ID when you make payment by credit card. Showing your driving license is the usual way of satisfying that request. On Saturday I was shopping for some stocking fillers and the chap in front of me was asked for ID as he was purchasing alcohol. He obliged. The cashier rang-up his purchases. He then proffered a credit card for payment. He was again asked for ID. He obliged without observing that his identity had not changed in the 45 seconds since he had shown it to the cashier previously.
