LCBO / discrimination with the excuse of assumption
On April 16, 2014, I asked my daughter to buy a quart(small bottle) of wine and one can of beer. When she went to pay, the cashier rejected her, because her ID was expired(Driver's License). This happened around 1:00 PM.
I decided to buy the items by myself (this was around 2:30 PM) on my way to work and I went with my daughter. When I went to pay, the Assistant Manager told me, "You cannot buy the beer". I asked what the reason was, he said: "Because I assume the beer is for her", all while pointing at my daughter. My daughter is 22.5 years old, and he CANNOT think or ASSUME what I am going to do with my purchases. And, what I didn't like was his assumption, because it's my money and I was NOT DOING ANYTHING ILLEGAL, it's my right, and I can decide what to do with my purchases, as long as it is not illegal.
I got so angry at the same time, I feel DISCRIMINATED. My daughter and I do not consume alcohol, that was a present that I wanted to give to my co-workers for Easter. I said to him: "We cannot live off assumptions, it is simply a discrimination, and against human rights". Why if he assumed that the beer was for my daughter did he sell me the wine, if both beverages are alcoholic and any of those could have been consumed by my daughter!
