"Our goal is to keep alcohol out of the hands of underage persons and make sure that they don't have access at least legal access to it that's our job,"

So illegal access is OK?

" memaw" is one of those words that needs to be erased from the "English" language.

Good thing drug dealers on the street don't card and grade schoolers can still get weed.

Wow. That's an actual quote.

Which district attorney in this county is bucking to be mayor or governor?

Commas do not exist in Lilburn Georgia apparently.

"Memaw"? I believe I can identify the speaker:

They have all been stuffed and mounted.

You're lucky you don't live in Minnesota where every jar store in the state is closed on Sunday.

memaw on that.

Amazon has overnight shipping, don't they? So, what's the problem?

the sad part? Lilburn is in Gwinnett county, the most affluent county in Georgia

Amazon doesn't take food stamps.

I dated a girl from Lilburn when I was in college.

She has seven children now, all home-schooled.

"Memaw" is just a regional term for a grandparent. Its not necessarily indicative of class status or intelligence. There are lots of such terms, "Grammy," "Papi," "Nana" and in my house, "Abuelo" and "Abuela," since my mother is Central American and my father's happy to go by it. It helps calling the maternal set "Grandma" and Grandpa" and then use the "Abuelos" for my parents. Keeps everything distinct for the kids.

Which means that the remainder of the county could serve as a backdrop for a post-apocalyptic thriller?

No online dictionary I have searched includes the word "memaw". Heck, even Wikipedia only acknowledges (without comment) it via a redirect to "grandparent", so you're in luck.

Yeah, she's actually still pretty cute (per her Facebook photos) for a chick with seven kids. All that clean living I guess.

Tell me more about this Central American mother of yours.

When I was younger, I may or may not have had a very convincing fake ID.  It was mostly so I could get into bars and other establishments that were 21 and up, since at the time, I hung out with a crowd that was a bit older than me.  I rarely drank alcohol at that time, so it really didn't get much use on that front.

What I thought was kind of interesting is that when I did go into a liquor store to buy something, it was always hit or miss as to whether I'd get carded or not.  I think they've gotten a little more stringent about it now, or else I've started looking younger the older I get, because now I get asked for ID very consistently, even when buying beer.

cool story bro. Should have been longer though. I felt like you didn't take enough time getting to your absolutely captivating point.

CMIIW, but while we're being proper, I would've put a comma between "Georgia" and "apparently."

Unless you were being ironic, in which case ISWYDT.

What exactly does this mean -- that sometimes you got carded, and sometimes you didn't? What other outcomes are there?
 
2013-12-22 10:29:37 PM
Watch out for the underage decoy with no id working for the cops.  That is going to be one hellacious ballbuster with a badge in a few years.
 
2013-12-22 10:29:47 PM
WTF are they doing not buying their liquor from moonshiners aka tax free like real Americans?
 
2013-12-22 10:30:15 PM
When I was underage I would put my (very real) driver's license on the counter with my alcohol, without the clerk asking first.

I found about 7 times out of 10, they'd just not even look at the date. The other three times, you had to be quick to grab the card back.

Actually, Forsyth County is the richest county in Georgia.  Cobb is 9th and Gwinnett is 11th.

My hometown. Here on Fark. I'm so proud.

There are no liquor stores outside of Lilburn in unincorporated parts of Gwinnett County. Customers will have to go Suwanee, Grayson or DeKalb to buy anything other than beer or wine.

There is no way this is true. Gwinnett Package is totally still on Pleasant Hill by Buford Hwy.

Well blame the employees on duty at the liquor stores and perhaps the owners as well if they promoted an enviromentthat they should sell to any one or ran things so loosely an employee would break  what should be rule #1 for any place that sell booze : no sales to minors.
