A few days ago, I went in to Barnes and Noble to buy a textbook, and tried to pay with a check. When they asked for ID, I gave them my learner's permit. However, the lady wouldn't accept it because the LP was expired (back in March). I've used the ID many times before for checks and my debit card, even at B&N, and never had this problem before.
Is this something new? Why wouldn't they accept it? It's valid ID. (I hate Maryland.. we're -even adults- required to first get our LP, which costs $60, then go to Driver's Ed, and finally get our DL, another $60 or so. And of course this is the only kind of photo ID I have.)
