I have a summer place that I go to as often as I can. When I am there alone I have may opportunities to dress. I hang around the house all day en femme but it since I am in another state I am able to do more public outings like shopping. I even spent some time in July laying out in public in my bikini. It is a wonderful experience and my confidence grows with every outing. Wearing the mask has also really helped my confidence.
Here is my small problem. On one of my outings to the grocery store I bought beer. The store requires ID for everyone purchasing beer. That means that I had to produce my PA driver’s license which still had my mustache in the photo. The store associate that was there to check ID’s at the self check out looked at the ID then looked at me. She was clearly flummoxed. I said several times “It is me” but she still was confused as to what she should do. Here was a woman buying beer with a man’s ID. After a few more moments of this uncomfortable situation another store associate came over. She gave the ID to the male associate who gave the ID and me a quick once over then gave the green light.
On the one hand I do find this to be a humorous situation. I can imagine the surprise the associate had when confronted with incongruousness of my ID and my appearance. Fortunately both associates and I were able to handle this quietly and agreeable. And that leads to my greater concern. What happens if the associate opposes who I present myself as for what ever reason and now we are in a bit of a situation. When I drive to this place I often enjoy driving en femme. (More on that in another post). I use cruise control to be safe speed traps. But what happens if I am pulled over while en femme?
Finally I use a cash back card for all of my purchases. But this is also in my male name. I often wonder when I sign with my male name while en femme what would happen if I were challenged on that.
And that is my ID problem!
