I was just carded at Wal-Mart

I'm 29 and I was just carded at Wal-mart for buying super glue. WTF?

She said it has to do with kids sniffing it. Now, I wasn't born yesterday, I get that kids sniff stuff (why, is another matter), but why would anyone choose to sniff a product that could possibly seal your airway shut?

That's just sad.

We have a rule at our house: only sniff the whipped cream, and you must pay for what you sniff.

(jk/though I did go through a phase as a teenager where I'd suck the nitrous oxide out of whipped cream cans in the back of 7-11. They must have loved me. )

I just bought 10 packs of Sudafed, and got a thumbs-up from employees "Joe" and "Stacey" at the checkout.

Get their parent to buy it, I guess. Same with cans of spraypaint.

Get ready for stores asking you if you're gay or not when you buy condoms. Or asking for parents' permission to buy those condoms.

Only the hardest of the hardcore seal their airway shut and then sniff glue.

read the post again.

Apparently 21 is the magic number for super glue. This ranks up there with being carded there for buying Wall Street out of the $5 bin last year. It isn't like I look 12 or something. So do they card when you buy M rated games, like GTA? or are those fair game for anyone?

The stores "supposed" to card you to make sure you are 18 or older. Whether they do it or not that's a different story.

They do have a nice smell.



Do they still have the markers with the different smells?

I remember them as a kid. red was strawberry, blue was blueberry, brown was shit, purple was grape, etc.
