He was a little surprised when he was asked for his driver’s license. ‘Maybe this is benign, but it’s just very unsettling,’ Johnson said. ‘And I got kind of amused by it being 60 years old (chuckles), that’s kind of cool… you know?’ But he started to lose his sense of humor when the clerk scanned it with the register.”
