    Amazingly I had my passport in the car, so trooped off to get it and gave it to them, where she said 'We know you're really tall but you've got a young looking face'

    Trying to work out if its a compliment or an insult to be honest.

    Yeh, I did almost go mental, just because I was astonished really, I haven't been ID'd in over a year and if I did it was for clubs/pubs and stuff where you have to be 18, not bloody 16!

    The worst one is when you go out for your eighteenth birthday and get ID'd in every single pub or club you go into - never mind the fact you were in there last week! And you left your passport at home whilst uttering "I won't need that, I never get ID'ed...."

    the people that work in supermarkets, convenience stores etc seem to be a little retarded, and as such you shouldn't get too upset if you get ID'd. Normally barstaff have some commen sense, working in a bar, if the bouncers let them in its not my problem unless they are literally still in nappies, I wouldn't bother IDing them.

    ive been able to get into clubs since i was 15.

    half the bouncers don't judge it on how you look they judge it on how you act.

    in shops... they usualy try and id every one who looks under 50... just in case

    Just so you know...if you serve someone underage it is the person that serves you that will get fined. And it is not cheap.
    The shop you work in usually won't be happy either. I had to ID anyone that looked under 21 when I was working.

    Is that a fact?? You might want to rethink the above before someone REALLY rips in to you.

    i got id'd in sainsburys last term. i started laughing til i realised the guy was serious. it was ridiculous though. i was buying wine for formal, wearing some college stash and paying with a credit card. under 18s don't buy wine, you have to be 18 to be at uni and have a credit card.

    i also got id'd at weatherspoons and they wouldn't accept my cambridge id.

    i always make a point of asking "well how old do you think i am then?"
