Techron: Can I see some ID?

The most hilarious and ridiculous thing happened to me this weekend. 
Hearing rumors that Techron was being pulled off the market and replaced
with the diluted Pro-Guard, I went to the Walmart next to work during
lunch time on Friday to get some Mobil One and some Techron and
effectively, there was no Techron in sight - just ProGuard.

Saturday I tried a different Walmart and they had just four bottles
left, so I took two of them at the usual price of $5.99.  Then, when I
try to pay for it, I am suddenly asked for a driver's license with a
very serious look like if were some kind of criminal getting supplies to
carry out some dark evil plot plot against mankind.  I asked why they
needed my license for and the cashier refused to tell me.  After all was
said an done and the cashier going to talk to the manager, I wasn't
allowed to take the Techron home without proof that I was not

Has anyone had similar experiences?  Next thing they'll be asking me for
ID to buy motor oil or even wiper blades!!  BTW, this was in Dallas, TX.
