Mistaken Identity

True story, happened this evening in the grocery store:

Store clerk: “I need to see your Drivers License”

Me: “Is that some new requirement?”

Store clerk: looks at me with a quizzical expression

Me: “Why do you need to see my drivers license?”

Store Clerk: holds up my bottle of olive oil

Me: “So….identification is now needed to buy a bottle of olive oil?!”

Store clerk: looks at the bottle and stammers “ I thought it was wine”

Me: “Well that’s a relief. I thought my conspiracy theory was being proved.”

We both chuckled and I was allowed to leave with my bottle of Colavita.
