Well i've been in US of A for quite a while now. And in all honesty I like it at times...people are nice, i go to college and there's always new people to meet, parties, and of course my gateway to the green card - american girls. But there are some aspects/laws here that simply astound me. You can be 18 to make a porn movie, but 21 to go to a strip club...the ease to get a gun is beyond me, especially when it is so often that teens/people go on shooting rampages in schools, churches, malls...but $$$ talks I suppose. But last night i went with 3 of my friends to get some beer since we made some homemade food which goes well with beer. Only one of them had 21 so she went in by herself...then the guy at the counter looked outside, saw the car, and told her that he needs to see all of our IDs. Upon her inquiring of WTF, he said that if she wants she should go find someone to explain her the law. Well this has been bugging me since and ive been trying to find the law but i was unable to do so. Now i understand being in the store together and being asked for ID...but this seems a little bit extreme. I was wondering if any of you are more familiar with this law. I can understand the logic up to a point...you dont want people to buy alcohol for minors, but is it really their place to bodyguard the parking lot? And i thought you were allowed to have unopened alcohol in the car, as long as an 'adult' is present. Oy oy oy dear freedom, where a person who is legally allowed to buy alcohol cannot do so.
