Of blues and reds.
Like most states, Illinois has the usual “you must be 18 or older to buy tobacco products” law, with a lot of places adopting a “If you don’t appear 28-30 or younger, you must provide a picture ID w/ birthday to get smokes” rule. And both are usual displayed in plain sight to save people trouble. (At least where I work.)

Illinois also has different color IDs and licenses for certain ages. 21 and over has blue, and under 21 has red. Makes it easier for any place selling alcohol. (21 and over here.)

Now if I card you, it’s because you don’t look old enough. If you start bitching, I’ve heard it all before and I don’t care. If you whip out the ID after bitching about the law and rule and it’s red... Let me put it as simple as possible:

YOU ARE NOT GETTING THE DAMNED CIGARETTES BECAUSE YOU HAVE PISSED ME OFF YOU LITTLE FUCKTARD.

You’re AT LEAST 9 YEARS from being 30. That red ID fucking says it plain as day. Not only that, but it also kills any right about you bitching about the “Look 30 plus or present ID” rule. I’m doing my job, and I and, worse yet, YOU know that you do not look that old.

Grrrargdujhgfduihsfuk.

... Sorry about that. Wouldn’t sell to a couple of jerks last night because of that and I needed to vent. 3 more midnight shifts and I’m done.
