Had something like that

Had something like that happen to me, I told her she can swipe her ID or call the manager over and have them swipe their ID but I'm not swiping mine.

The most common thing that happens to me is at Fry's Electronics when they ask to see my receipt as I leave. I tell them "no thanks" and so far they haven't pressed the issue. I don't have to prove ownership of the items. If you think about it, the shopping bags are given at the register at time of purchase, so absent of unusual circumstances, the prevailing logic is that I have just made a purchase of those items. I should not be held in suspicion at that point for simply refusing to prove to some stranger that the items in my possession are, in fact, mine.
