Why is it kids used to be able to buy smokes for their dads with just a note?

did you know they knew us so well we didn't even need the note, and as soon as I walked in the door they grabbed the smokes off the shelf for me?
do you know when I was 16 i wished they would still do that?!?!?

this brings back memories, of a store in NJ where I grew up. We called it the Little Store. Probably not there anymore, it's been years.
Do you know I miss the shore in NJ ?
