In my town they take your driver's license when they hand you the balls and hand it back when you pay your table time and return the balls. One reason I play mostly at home. What happens if they give my driver's license to someone else?
At this one medium sized room I frequent, the bartender was sorting left behind licenses. There were hundreds of them.

So a few days ago I was at a bar at 7 am to play pool. The place has the worst tables in town. Anywho I was there and going to play pool when the bartender came over and asking if she could get me anything I said no and she asked for my ID. I told her I do not have it and left. It was a waste of time. Like yes I know I was in the wrong but I was just playing pool not drinking. Don't you guys wish places did not do this? How do you handle this? I am assuming you guys will think I am crazy for not carrying my ID.

Wait a minute, you pay for everything with a credit card yet you dont carry an exact same size piece of plastic known as an ID????

I say credit card for simplicity. My card is on my phone. I have a smartphone that has NFC or near field communication. So I download an app called google pay and wave my phone next to a card reader that accepts NFC and I can pay with a card on my phone. It is also known as contactless payment.

You show your ID or you leave. It’s pretty simple. You don’t make a fuss or throw a fit, you just show them your ID. And if you don’t have it you leave without a fuss.

Did you eve read or comprehend my original post? I said I was in the wrong. I know why they do it.
Then why post this? Some states have a lot of oversight in places where alcohol is served. If they screw up they could get their license revoked and be shutdown. I live in one of these states. I never go to the bar without my ID to play pool and I am dry player. If you got a problem with the rules buy your own table and play at home. Maybe get one of those unicorn converted 9 footers with batteries with a coin op to see if you can defeat it 🤔.

And like I said if there was a security guard asking every time or the bartender asked me every time I would not really have a problem with it. But since I have been to this place dozens of times and this was the first time I was ever asked to produce ID I have a tiny problem with it. If I had room in my place and I could get a table of 7 foot or up for around 100 dollars I would. But I dont have room and tables cost way more so I will not be doing that.

You still haven't figured it out?
