I’m a cashier and today an old man came for a lot of stuff and at the end he had a bottle of wine, and when I asked for his ID (which is our policy, we can get fired, fined and never get hired in a place that sells alcohol again) and he ignored me at first, when I asked again he asked if I was serious, I tell him that it’s our policy and I can get fired he literally says “you should be fired for stupidity”
Honestly, was that fucking needed. It got me so mad tbh.

I'm sorry that this happened to you. The simple answer is that many people feel that retail employees are there to SERVE them, so they can treat them like SERVANTS. They don't feel the need to show them the common courtesy or respect they would show to a "regular person," as in, a fellow customer or someone on the street. Or maybe they are nasty people and would do the same to a fellow customer, and you just see so many people that by sheer chance you will end up seeing these jerks eventually.
Maybe you can't retaliate against such a-holes, but you don't have to accept it either. You are in a position of power. If they want to purchase their item, they have to follow YOUR rules. You can just stare at them, finally saying, "Well, what's it going to be? Do you want to buy it or not?" Or maybe a more officially polite, "So, sir, do you still wish to purchase that bottle of wine?" "YES, of course I do, how stupid are you?" "Well, as I said before, I will need to see your ID then." *blank stare*
Thank you for shopping at Target!! *super big fake cheesy smile and a wave* ha ha0
