I need so many documents to get a liquor license but it takes me FIVE MINUTES to get a marriage license! PLEASE….
“Im sorry ma’am but this needs to be printed this way and I need an invitation or wedding announcement and I need this this way and the venue should have send you this instead of that . They must have a new person working there who doesn’t know our protocol..blah blah blah.”
“What your name?birthday? birthday? social? address?where were you born? ok and your fiance’s info?…alright her is your license.”
WTH?! There is something grossly askew here.
ok sorry I needed to vent.

@miss narwhal: Well I can take a guess — with a marriage license you can only hurt yourself but with a liquor license you are responsible for every single person you serve alcohol to. If they’re underage, if they drive afterweard, if they destroy something at the venue in a drunken state, etc. It’s a long shot, but it could come back on you!

Because you can get divorced, but you can’t un-burn down a building!

Because liquor licensing laws were born in an era when people were really puritanical and thought everyone who wanted a license was a giant sinner intent on corrupting the community. A lot of American laws are rooted in hyper-stringent morality; it’s just a lot more obvious with that demon alcohol than anywhere else.
