I got IDed on the weekend. Not once, but twice. And, no, I wasn't at a nightclub. It was at the movies and the local RSL club. Not the kind of places that you expect to get asked for ID.
|Little White Lies - well worth seeing if you get a chance|
On Friday night, we went to see Little White Lies at the Uptown cinema, an old run-down movie theatre that shows mainly art-house and foreign language films. My favourite. However, movies that are usually rated M15+ in Australia have an R rating here, hence the reason why one might be asked for ID. The thought that I may possibly be under 18 is kind of flattering, I guess?!
|Legions Club in downtown Calgary|
On Saturday night, I wasn't expecting to be asked for ID at the local Legions Club (the Canadian equivalent to the Australian RSL). We were there to see a band as part of the Sled Island Festival, a local music and art festival (yes, it's festival season in Calgary). The IDing process became quite ridiculous when a girl in our group was refused entry for not having ID ... she is in her late 40s and has kids old enough to be attending the concert. Crazy. I know that those asking for ID are just doing their job, but can't people just have a bit of common sense when it comes to working out whether someone in their 30s or 40s needs to show ID?
