Oh what a night for sports in this country! Have you heard this story yet? It seems Mark Cuban is mad the Cowboys are playing a playoff game this Saturday night and it conflicts with the Mavs game at the same time.
“I know we’re just little pissants compared to the NFL, but seriously, the NFL is turning into the ugly American when it comes to sports leagues,” Cuban said. “They don’t give a crap about anybody but themselves.”
So I just went to the store to pick up a few provisions before the big arctic blast hits tomorrow night. I picked up a box of wine to go with my dinners coming up.
I got my things and was ready to check out, and decided to do the self-pay and save some time. I scanned the wine and of course the register stopped to tell me a cashier had to see my driver’s license. I didn’t get any attention and I waited about 10 seconds and scanned the box again and presto, the wine scanned without the cashier checking my I.D.
Now I’m no authority on this matter, but it seems to me if I could do that, a kid that was less than 21 might could do the same thing. That’s kind of a scary thought if you are against drinking and driving like I am. Here in Texas, you can’t sell alcohol to people less than 21. So my point is, who will hold Kroger accountable if someone under 21 buys alcohol in a Kroger store, and then gets involved in a tragic accident? By the way, when I got home I looked at my receipt and it shows the date of birth under the purchase of the wine as 11/22/1969. Oh, and that’s not by birthday. So what does this mean? Kroger has programmed that birthday in!
