Today I happened to pop into our local Post Office in order to gain some foreign currency, upon taking the order the bloke behind the counter asked for ID, either driving license or passport! I passed over my ID card as it was the first thing to hand in my wallet and I do not generally carry my passport around with me. The ID card was refused as proof of ID and I was again asked for either my driving licence or my passport. Is this normal? Is an ID card not a valid form of identification for the Post Office or was this individual just being a jobs worth? Whilst I understand that some companies require proof of address, my passport does not have my address in it. Comments?
