One of two possibilities passed you by. First, you either had a bad lawyer or didn't have on at all or lastly you used yourself to defend the infraction. Needless to say that regardless of the decisions you made, it was bad. However, that will not prevent you from obtaining an identification card to purchase cigarettes, alcohol, porn or whatever if you are of age. The relevence is that you apparently sat on your bum for a year without thinking how to fix the situation. I thought you blokes at least had a sense of humour. I was not speaking literally of the possible fines that may be encumbered, but more to the point of company/corporate policy. The right to refusal of service is the propritary nature of the business owner(s) governed by their particular by-laws. If a particular business selling candles has a mandate by the owners not to sell to blondes, then it is their right to not to do so. If the local, state or federal government passes a law that redheads cannot purchase candles, then the business owner has an obligation not to sell candles to redheads, but they can also have the right to dictate, under their corporate laws, that people with green hair are to be excluded. The point being that if you are requesting service from a company, they have a right to ask for proof of authenticity and legality. I don't consider my example to be totally irrelevant. I will totaly agree with you on the fact that the American legal system is screwed up, but that is irrelevant to my point. Why hassle with the hassel? If they want proof that you took they picture, then give it up. Otherwise, deal with another lab.
