So today I ran out of silicone and I went to my local Walmart. I went to the auto parts section and there it was one last tube of red rtv silicone. I grabbed it and went to the self checkout area and got a machine. I then proceeded to scan the silicone and the machine locks up and tells me to wait for assistance. I thought “alright just a glitch in the machine or something” the lady comes up and scans her employee card and she says “do you have your ID”. I was confused because its not like I’m trying to buy anything I shouldn’t be. I ask her why do I need my ID as i reach for my wallet, and she says “You need to be 18 to buy this”. At this point I just told her I’m not 18 and I gave her the Silicone and left.
So my question to you is, Have you had any trouble buying silicone at the store? If so please share your story.
