Allow me to complain about something

The other day Barry and I went to the Lounge near Melbourne Central and ordered food, but then we were asked for identification, which was a bid odd since I have never heard of being asked for ID there and we weren’t ordering any alcohol

Anyway Barry produced an ID card and this rough conversation followed:

'we don't accept these'

'why not'

'we don't accept foreign drivers licenses'

”that’s not a driver’s license this is what I use for my visa and phone and internet accounts it should be good enough for a restaurant’

'we don't accept foreign that either'

'then how do foreigners eat here'

'a passport will do'

'I need a passport to eat at your restaurant'

And then we had to leave the restaurant because foreign uni students or not we don’t carry our passports around everywhere :’)

Unfortunately I poked a bit into the legal things and while this really isn’t my area it does seem like they were completely within their rights to do that

:’) ah well
