I'm still very used to getting carded for alcohol, even though I'll be 30 soon. Well, tonight, I go into a convenience store to pick up a 6-pack. Of course, I get carded. She looks at the ID, then looks at me. The following is our conversation:

Clerk - "You colored your hair."
Me - "Yeah, I highlighted it."
Clerk - "'76, huh?"
Me - "Yep."
Clerk - "How do you say your name?"

I proceed to tell her what my name is. This is the same lady who, a few hours earlier, carded a friend of mine when she bought one $1 lottery ticket.

I know you gotta be careful, but sheesh!

My 41 yr old brother and I both got carded at Buffalo Wild Wings a couple weeks ago. That was amusing.

A few weeks ago I attempted to buy alchohol and the clerk asked for my ID. She said, "83? You're underage." I told her this was the year 2006, therefore I am 22 nearing 23, and she called me a liar. Took her a few minutes to figure out the math. Pissed me off though.

Not complaining. It's just a formality. I've never had anyone question the validity of my ID before, though.

I had a cashier at a liquor store hold my drivers licence and my military ID a few years back.

I have been growing my hair out (still above the ears and collar though... just the top was growing out) and she did not believe that the person in both pictures was me.

She said she knew the mil ID was a fake because servicemen were only allowed to have short cropped hair and she knew this because her brother was a Marine.

Finally I got annoyed and called the local police and they straightened things out for me. I have not been back since.

That's what is scary.

By the time I started drinking/going to bars I was 23 and had plenty of gray hair. I've never been carded for anything that I can recall.

I'm 35 and still get carded. Not complaining at all. However I hate it when doormen take my DL look at it look at me look back at the DL, hold the DL up to the light then look back at me, then flip the DL over or maybe scratch at it with their fingernail and so on before giving it back. It's happened numerous times. It's like they can't believe my DL is real.

Once I wanted to buy a drink whilst waiting at a restaurant I showed them My KS DL this was in AZ anyway the corner of my DL was bent a little bit and he said he couldn't serve me because of this. At the time I was 27. Rat bastard.

I'm only 24, so I never mind getting carded for booze. The one that hurt my pride a bit is when I got carded to get into an R rated movie. Do I really look 17? :sulk:

Same thing happened to me. When I was about 24. And my friends who at the time were barely 18 didn't get carded.

With a fresh haircut and shave I still get carded once in a while. My grey beard gives it away otherwise...

Similar to my experience at the Break Time here.

Clerk: Hi Brad.
Me: Howdy.
Clerk: (waits)
Me: Natural Light for $9.99 a 12 or $10.99 a case? Check your chart.
Clerk: *looks up Natty on chart.* Yep.
Me: FATALITY! Home office snoozes and Brad gains 12 cans!
Clerk: You're very odd (she's from Kenya, cut her some slack.)
Me: Giggity. Ring it up...

Last time I buy a 6-pack from a convenience store. Paid (including tax) $6.15 for a 6-pack of Bud Light. They may have been bottles, but c'mon.

They're supposed to card anyone they don't think looks at least 27, just to be on the safe side. If you haven't been carded in over a year, people must think you're at least 28. That's not too bad.

I never get carded, but then again they typically don't card people buying Dr. Pepper.

Sometimes I ask if they want to see my ID - while I'm holding it out for them to take.

I always have my billfold out and ready, but I never offer my ID to them until they ask for it. I'm sure that'll be different in a few years. :)
