    would either of you have any problem showing your id to a server at a restaurant while on vacation when presenting your credit card....I can honestly say I have never been denied when I asked politely, in fact many European diners want to follow me to the terminal to watch me swipe their card (which I will gladly do) since they can sign right then and there....FTR I very rarely use a debit/cc when purchasing gas, because of all the scams out there at gas pumps..to each their own

    Absolutely! I went into a certain orange-colored well known home/hardware store this afternoon (very begrudgingly, as I'm a firm believer that a certain blue-colored well known home/hardware store is run much better, but was in a hurry and sacrificed for convenience) to pick up a simple scrub brush, and when I made my way to the front registers I found that there were ONLY self service checkout counters available. Since I had intended on paying with cash, I attempted to put my bills into the robot cashier, but found that it wasn't going to accept my $5 bill. This meant I had to page an attendant, who then had to go log into a register and exchange my $5, give me a new $5 so that FINALLY I could feed the new bill into the machine. WTF! I understand maybe a few self checkout registers, but not a single human cashier in the store!?!?!?!! By the way this was around 5:30 pm, a seemingly normal time to be in a hardware store. I normally would have walked out, but was in a jam for time and had to go with it.

    Showing my ID, probably wouldn't have a problem with that, just hope that the server doesn't have an eidetic memory.
