I went into the Owensboro Ky Menards to order and pick up 30 landscaping timbers that were on sale. The clerk and the department manager both refused to sell me the timbers without my personal phone number.
I asked them why they had to have personal info like that to sell something. They said it was for identification when I went back to the rear to load up. I offered them a look at my drivers license, military Id and weapons permit card. Nope this wasn't good enough.
The anal retentive idiots just had to have my phone number which doesn't prove my identity.
I told them that they had lost a customer to the whole chain forever.
