Lmao. Salty folks don’t like being ID’d. Get over it and be an adult and carry an ID with you.

It is company policy for workers to ID. If they don't ID then they most likely will get terminated. Most workers would like to keep their job so they will ID you, no matter if you appear to be over the legal age.

Its their job.The states does sting operations to catch people who aren't checking ID cards.

In 2010 Dollar General made it mandatory to check everyone ID's no matter how old they looked. Because too many employees were failing these sting operations and causing huge fines for the Company. No one deserves to risk losing their job in which they so dearly need. Because you are embarrass of your age.

Get over it.Heck you need to stop smoking anyway its very unhealthy.

After reading 151 comments - here it is in a nutshell.The {{REDACTED}} at Dollar General Corporate lie to their employees and tell them that "IT IS THE LAW" to check every single customer for cigarette purchases whether the person is 17 or 117.

Dollar General Corporate wants their cashiers to check ALL ID's and threaten them with job loss if they don't, so the sheeple follow their masters and do their bidding never questioning why they are carding 50 year olds - just to keep a miserable $7.25 job.

THE LAW - incidentally - is that you check IDs of people who look 30 or below.And a good number of customers say that it isn't the LAW - it's a f'up coporate policy that drives business elsewhere.

Bottom line - don't shop at Dollar General for cigarettes (honestly anything because a company who utilizes fear tactics on employees is just despicable) if you don't want harassed for your ID because come *** or high water the cashier is going to keep that minimum wage job and *** you off.

I worked there too...once.

Regardless of age they are required to ID you. If not then that associate loses his or her job.

I was literally told by clearly an older gentleman to kiss his *** when I asked for an ID.Also they only look at your DOB to type in the computer anything else it doesn't matter.

Federal Law requires an ID check IF you appear to be 27 yrs or younger.I don't mind showing the ID.

What I do mind is that they record my birth date. There is no law that requires them to record any information about me.

If you hand over your ID to anyone, How do you really know what they are jotting down.

What they are doing is only by company policy.I just don't buy cigarettes at Dollar General because of this policy, but don't tell me it's the law....it's not
