Do you look your age?

I was at Wal-Mart the other night and bought Total Recall. Of course it's rated R and and since Wal-Mart knows best you have to be at least 17 to buy it. So the cashier asks for my ID. I'm 26. I laughed at her but she was serious. So I gave it to her and she looked at me and then the card and back at me. I was thinking, "are you fucking kidding me?". I was also ID'd to get into the Matrix Revolutions. Again, I was thinking the same. I don't care about getting ID's for beer because I can understand that its the law and everything but for a movie? I'd say I look maybe lower twenties but no way 17. Anyone else not look your age or get ID'd when you shouldn't be?

I've always been told I look a lot older than I am.


At my last job, while unloading a truck I jokingly said, "I'm getting too old for this hopping in and out of the back of trucks."

The guy I was working with was in his late 30s, and he replied, "Too old for this? You're what...27, 28?"

At the time I was 20.

I look quite older. Picked for 32 when I was 20 in Vegas. Been mistaken for my wife's uncle (she looks young, so that works out )

All the time.

I'm 26 and am always guessed to be 2-3 years older. Ever since I was 20, people guessed me to be 28 or so. I'm always told that I don't act my age in the sense that I act older.

Why the hell haven't you been working the last 40 years??!!

People think I am younger that what I am. I'm 25 and usually get pegged as 20. Must be the baby face.

I'll be 27 in July and I am regularly carded just about everywhere. It might have something to do w/ the fact that I might shave twice a week.

I'm 46, and I think I look my age.

There's a bunch of 18-20 year old gay kids that hang around my house now, thanks to my roommate... They say I don't look my age, but I think they're lying and just want to borrow my DVDs.

I'm 33 and look about 20. I drink a lot of water and always have so I have really nice skin. I also don't drink or smoke so maybe that helps, too. Although I love the looks I sometimes get from people when they see me with my 7 year old. I've actually had people ask me if I was his older sister or his babysitter...

I'm 23 and constantly get told I look like I'm a high school kid. If I wasn't tall people would probably consider me even younger.

When I was in a casino a while back (around 25 at the time) I was carded probably 7 or 8 times...sometimes by the same fucking person. Before all this happened, I'd been to 8 different casinos over a 2-year period and was never asked for an ID.

I now tape my Drivers License to my forehead.
