Shell Oil Co. service station / discriminatory behavior by clerk
Approximately two weeks ago I was walking through my neighborhood and stopped at the Shell service station at 1201 Bonforte Blvd. here in Pueblo, CO. I attempted to buy cigarettes but was asked for an ID by a clerk who would only identify himself as David. I told him, I'm walking and don't carry an ID when I'm walking. He refused to sell me cigarettes without the ID, saying it was Shell policy and he could be fined $250 for selling cigarettes to me without an ID. I AM 64 YEARS OLD! I told him his refusal to sell me cigarettes was discriminatory because I had never been asked for an ID before at that particular service station or any other, for that matter.
