This confuses me. I am 17, i went to Walmart with my brother who is 26. I got a few makeup items and he got himself a shirt. We checked out at a counter and he asked for cigarettes. He showed his ID but then the lady said that she needed to see my ID. I don't smoke cigarettes. I'm not old enough secondly, obviously. So since i did have an ID and showed her, she said he couldn't buy cigarettes with me and they would refuse him to buy cigarettes if he ever tries again. All of this because i'm a minor. So actually, we left and he bought vodka and cigarettes at the liquor store. Is that really their job? Because i remember being with him and even my mother when they bought cigarettes. It just really irritated me and we had to go across town to get them.
