I'm 30. when was the last time you were ID'd? do you carry ID? what's your ID of choice?
always get id'd in robert dyas by actual children
Get ID'd all the time because of my boyish good looks. I'm starting to feel a bit flattered now i'm 24..
I have long hair in the picture so I always ask them to promise not to laugh to make it a bit less awkward. It is a bit embarrasing though.
Tbf he looked like and then acted like a fucking baby
. . . n the checkouts was a 28 year old
and he actually had his ID in his hand, ready. he was 29. looked about 16.
The woman giggled and said, "Oh, I'm an '81 birthday too!" as if that was an excuse for thinking I was 15.
I'm almost 27. Would have been the first time in ages but I also got ID'd in the pub by a new to the job barman who was clearly being overly careful/
To be fair I have a young looking face, but these are the only times I've been ID'd since I took to sporting a goatee.
Driving licence is the way forward, I hate carrying my passport around.
whenever I'm in the states. they ID you for fucking everything over there.
and a lot of them won't accept uk driving license as ID, the bastards
Had to go elsewhere to get my booze
However, I had to send back my driving licence (expired) and I ended up going to rock city and getting I.D'd. Luckily, I was with a couple of babes otherwise I wouldn't have stood a chance of getting in. Havent been ID'd before that for about 3 years.
When my license is nowhere near expired and I don't want to shell out 50 quid or whatever just because I had a haircut a few years ago.
He let me in though, mainly because I knew my welsh address which probably seems quite exotic in London. But still, what a twat.
i was going out from being fifteen. didn't get ID'd once until i was 19.
was sure that was going to go on forever
I look about 37. Both times they just backed down within about 30 seconds when I said I was nearly 30 and had no ID on me. Thought they were supposed to stick to their guns, I wasn't even a twat or intimidating towards them, they were just all 'oh, yeah, sorry' and scanned it through
i know from working in a supermarket. can be closed down for a day, which is a lot of business. which is why i'd never make a fuss about being refused.
the bookmaker can be fired on the spot, and the shop/venue could potentially lose their licence.
think that is a real milestone, when you get id'd and you respond 'but i'm ___' and they are like yeah ok and wave you in.
Despite being 24, looking well over 16 *and* there being no age restrictions on buying paracetamol in the first place.
A few years ago when it happened for the first time, I had no ID with me and an awful headache. I ended up shouting and arguing with the cashier for about 10 minutes while I waited for my ancient phone to load up the relevant NHS webpage stating no age restrictions on buying paracetamol...
I think they were just blanket IDing everyone. Both times I just laughed and told them I am 31 and have a beard, and that I had nothing on me. They let me in, which is odd as they can be twats about "oooh I've asked now".
The last time I was refused was buying some gifts in Hotel Chocolat a few years ago. It was some swanky chocolates and a bottle of some weird chocolate-friendly wine which was about a tenner. They only asked as the girl on the checkout wasn't 18 so had to get it OKd by a manager. I had no ID on me and they refused to serve me. It was just very odd, I told them I would just come back another time or go to another branch. Which I did without any bother at all.
I have no ID as my driving license has been returned and I am not taking my passport out on the offchance some jobsworth IDs me, I would rather just risk not getting in somewhere.
rarely get ID'd but when I do I'm just like welp I'll go somewhere else BYE
Don't even think I look that young - think it's probably mainly because I'm a massive scruffbag...
instead of this silly challenge 25 thing, just think "could this person realistically be 17". And some common sense as well, if someone is doing a big shop in Asda including nappies, a chicken, potatoes and veg plus a bottle of wine, they are hardly likely to be under 18 and trying to get away with buying booze. If they look shifty and are just buying bacardi breezers then fair enough.
Am 28 but look much younger and am used to it being a regular thing. Best one recently was being ID'd for some hayfever nasal spray.
What is annoying is when I'm out with my girlfriend buying booze in the supermarket and I get ID'd - which is fine, but then they ask to see her ID (she's 31) which she rarely carries meaning they can't serve me the alcohol, which is annoying, although I can sort of see their point. However they don't prevent parents buying booze infront of their kids, which is sort of the same thing in that they are suggesting the mrs is <18
...bit yewtree mate.
