Do you ever go out without ID?

I've read a bunch of stories on sites like Not Always Right where a store clerk will ask for ID and the customer claims not to have any. These aren't necessarily underage kids trying to buy beer - some are adults who apparently don't carry ID with them.

I don't go anywhere without my purse, especially when driving, so I have my wallet and my license with me. Even on vacation in situations where I'm neither driving nor planning to buy alcohol, I'll make sure my license is in my pocket - how else will the police identify my body?? But seriously, it seems a simple, common-sense thing to have a form of identification on your person, just in case.

Do you ever wander about anonymously? If so, why?
