And a twist on that...

Last night a DHL pickup point refused to give me my package even though I had the card, the right name, and photographic ID (their email lists driving licence, passport, military ID card and others), because my photo ID was not a driving licence.

"Look mate, I don't drive. I don't have a driving licence. Here is a passport, which is perfectly valid according to the DHL email"

"Computer says I must see your driving licence!"

"No, it says 'Photo ID, e.g. driving licence'"

"e.g. means exactly"

"No it doesn't..."

30 minutes waiting for the manager
