[Told by firstname.lastname@example.org (Sven Heinicke) after I mentioned I finally found out that George Bush not only carries ID with him, but he also has an American Express Card.]
The King of Sweden, about one year ago, went into a computer store wanting to buy his son a computer for Christmas. He was going to pay for it with a credit card, (I don't know what kind of credit card it was) and the salesman asked him for some ID. His face being on almost every 1 Kr. (1 crown) coin in Sweden (his father is on some of the old ones), he took a coin out of his pocket and put it on the table saying that that was his ID. It seems that that was not good enough and he finally took out his real ID (I guess he was being smart). But then when he was walking out of the store with the computer the anti-shoplifter alarm went off.
