Sorry, I thought we were discussing something to be held by the staff
to ensure you return an access card. That does not have to be the
same document used to verify identity. Last time I checked, the $50
(or £20, or ¥5000 or whatever) bill didn't have my picture on it either.
Although I admit the $50 bill gets me into more places than my DL. ;)
