Completely and utterly pointless? Or slightly clever?
The pubs were really slack when I was young.
If I go over to America next year, as I'll only be 20, which will be a pain in the arse.
Probably going to study in California so need to get some. What's the best way to go about this? I'm too old for this shit!
at 14-17, I was able to spend regular weekends with my bruvva who was at Leeds Uni at the time.
It was amazing - watching people who were obviously over 18 getting refused entry cos they'd forgot their drivers license etc. and little 15 year old me slipping into clubs playing indie music before it went all Scouting for Girls.
'Kingston College of Garden Design' when I was 16.
It worked approximately 15% of the time and I soon learnt that a surefire way of not getting into pubs and bars was to produce a fake ID.
Far more of an American rite of passage spurred on by your ridiculous drinking age.
in an Asian run off licence in Barry Island. We were on a CCF camp at the time
The guy behind the corner looked a bit unsure so I showed him my Corporal's stripes (that's not a euphemism, honest), which I'd been given the same day and hadn't had time to sew on yet.
Quite how I managed to convince that I was a squaddie with my chin length hair (center parting plus undercut, natutally), circus tent sized Droors jeans, badly torn canvas Vans and and Beastie Boys 'Sabotage' tee shirt is anyone's guess.
and then i suddenly started getting ID'd all over the place. Benjamin Button steez.
