I'm going to an over 18's thing tonight, and look under 18(I am 17)
How can I look or make people think I'm older?
and talk about your estates in Wiltshire
Should be no problem. Thanks.
Any other advice?
A monocle and a top hat.
Believe you will get in...
and shout "Now, I'm the Grandad"
If you don't get that reasonably recent reference you're on your own!
for a couple of years...
complain about the noise....what these hoodlums are wearing, and that you can't understand the words.
I presume you are going to a gig, if your on a date, that's a different matter
be an arse about it!
yeah you wouldn't want to be that.
guh my hands press the wrong buttons.
just having a fake ID? i MADE mine and all my friends and we had no problems!
it's a gig.
Some of the ideas so far seem pretty good.
Did I mention I'm leaving in like 15 minutes?
Fake ID, but I've heard rumours the bouncers at this place are absolute goons when it comes to it.
gig venue's never seem to care much about being 18 or over. Perhaps lay off the booze though.
if I get in, I'll count myself lucky, so won't piss about with it. Why the hell can't they just have stamps saying no booze or whatever.
DON'T be the one right at the end. they loving picking on the one that's last in so that all the others have to look really stupid as they have to walk back out or you look really stupid when they decide to leave you on your own. in the cold. also if they ask for id just look them straight in the face and declare you are 27 or something.
DEFINITELY don't say you're 18.
about alcopops, hand jiving and any other nonsense the kids of today are into
when I went to see a Fish Called Wanda, which was a 15.
teenagers always have badly fitting clothes. When people get older their clothes should fit better.
but that never seems to do anything.
Curse my natural youth.
when i was too wrong. i messed up the date of birth thing so the till lady wouldn't let me in, my mate was lived
hang around with jack nicholson - go to the cinema with people your own age
loads to the shaving thread, print it off then show the bouncers if they stop you.
Positive mental attitude in hand.
breeze in as if you've been to that particular venue a million times before.
i look younger than wot i really am and sometimes get asked when buying a travelcard from the newsagents if i want a child or adult one. i don't think i look THAT young. i'll be laughing once i'm old(er).
last friday AND saturday!!!
im well old!
Go bakc in time and make your parents concieve you 1 year early.
itll be rubbish and expensive.
thanks to all the above tips, I got in.
for the faux enthusiasm :)
i didn't mean it to seem like that!!
am happy for you you got in, i remember what a bitch it was worrying about getting in places.
yeah I was worrying in the Queue, as I happen to look the youngest of the group I was with, and they were all being arsey, saying "if 1 of us doesn't get in, the rest still should", and I'd be left on my own in the freezing cold. All turned out well though.
it's really harsh! everyone always says that, but when it's turned round on them it's a different story...
wear an "80 TODAY!!" birthday badge or something
and put talcon powder in your hair
and be racist, all old people are racist.
