Man (mid to late 30's) at next window in the Post Office trying to open an account (this conversation had been going on a while before I shuffled up)

PO lady: You can use a bank card as ID, do you have one?

Man: No that's why I want an account here

PO lady: have you got a bill or something with your name and address on?

Man: No I live with me mam so they've all got her name on. (pauses) can I bring a note from me mam saying I live with her?

PO lady: Er no, are you sure you haven't got something official with your name and address on?

Man: No nothing (pauses again) What about the letter with me court date on?

I had to leave at this point so I missed the denouement I hope he go his bank account but I also hope he's not responsible for any small children or animals.

I had virtually the same conversation quite often in the library I worked in worked in before this one. One bloke gave me as id his prison day release card. As it gets more difficult financially for people to move out of the parental home this sort of thing will happen more often.
