Big Brother is Watching...

Especially when you buy cold or allergy medicine.

I mean seriously. I'm a snotty mess (exaggerating) but I clearly have a cold - hence I'm buying cold medicine. I'm really not going to go make meth or something - I just want some cold relief.

But for the last few years (at least 2) they have all the cold /allergy stuff behind the counter and you have to ask for it. Then they have to ask for ID and scan my license and I got 'cleared' to buy the medicine. Then on my receipt it tracks how much I bought today - there's a limit on how much pseudoephedrine a person can buy a day. I haven't hit my limit yet - woo hoo.
