Went to a show a Auckland's Vector Arena on Sunday night and collected the pre-booked tickets. Had a copy of the emailed booking confirmation, but then had to produce in order:
- the credit card to which the booking had been charged
- some form of photo ID (why, how did they know what I looked like in the first place?)
- and then finally had to sign for them
More than a little over the top I think, or maybe i am just used to people being more trusting in Wellington e.g. I have noticed way less petrol pumps on pre-pay here than in some other parts of the country.
