We are at a beach house in NC and I was going to let the kids play with sparklers outside tonight. I couldn't find a lighter so I asked my brother to buy a pack from the 7/11 across the street. He came back and said they wouldn't sell them to him. They said when he told them he didn't know he had to be 18, they laughed at him and acted like he was lying about not knowing.
My brother is 17 btw. I never knew minors couldn't buy lighters...I guess I can kind of see why but eh, its a little stupid imo.
