"Ma'am may I please see your ID"
The other day I was purchasing something and I paid with my debit card. The young check out boy quickly looked and me and said "Ma'am may I please see your ID". I was like sure but my picture is right there on my debit card. He then went on to repeat himself and said "Ma'am can I please see your ID". I pulled out my license and he looked at it and then he looked at me repeatedly. I then looked at him strangely and said "is there a problem?". He politely said "no ma'am..I'm sorry but frankly they just don't look like you". I chuckled and told him that he didn't need to be sorry, that I was happy they didn't look like me but that he could quit calling me ma'am. LOL.
