I Need I.D. For That?

I purchased a "grow your own oyster mushroom kit", at the supermarket yesterday. The teenaged cashier told me he needed to call a manager, and I assumed it was for a price. It wasn't, he needed someone over 21 to ring it. Incredulous, I blurted out the first thing that sprung to mind.

"Why? They aren't hallucinogenic mushrooms! "

The man in line behind me laughed, and we joked about the odd things people get carded for now (cough medicine, spray paint, etc.) Keep in mind, the box has a label across the top that reads, "Great for kids!"

"Oh" the manager said when he arrived, "He thought this was a box of wine. Sorry about that."

Because wine is obviously great for kids.
