    Hi

    Just wondering, whether if you mind getting ID'd - and even to go as far as, like being asked for ID because it's like "yeaahh I'm old enough" kind of thing.

    Basically because at work when I ask people - they don't seem fussed at all, especially the ones who look younger.

    I hate getting ID'd. But I suppose that's cos I'm underage.
    Never have had to use it though! Just hold a packet of cigarettes / smile very nicely when you walk past the bouncers and they're fine. (Always happened with me ) Even my 14 year old sister can go clubbing and just do that.

    don't get ID'd.
    don't think it'd bother me much, perhaps it'd reassure me that i don't look 50.

    Hmm depends really on what its for, like if I was ID'd for a 15 cert film I'd be pretty annoyed (since I'm nearly 19 and I know for sure that I don't look younger than 15 lol) but for drink and the like, I'm not too bothered cos its mostly the "look 21" thing and obviously its a lot harder for people in the shop/pub to judge, and of course, they have to be more careful with selling 18+ stuff

    I don't care..doesn't always happen though, even then.
    Though I'd imagine it'd be annoying if I forgot my driving license or something...

    I only got ID'd once while still being underage, that annoyed me because I'd wasted my time getting to the bar and it was faintly embarrassing. I don't care when people ID me now I'm old enough though, it just means I look youthful.

    Sometimes I don't mind it, sometimes I do. Odd. Doesn't happen all that often though.

    it's hassle if you're going out with a group of older people and you're the only person underage...
    but overall, although i find it a pain in the ass, i guess i just accept that people are doing their job whether we or they like it or not.

    I really don't care. It doesn't offend me and it's not as if I don't have ID so I have nothing to be worried about.

    I don't mind if I have my ID with me cos I do look young. Kinda annoying that I always have to remember it though but cos I'm always ID'd I never forget it... Lol. If I got ID'd for a 15 I'd be insulted though - being 19 in a week.

    I went out last night and was asked for ID. I haven't had to use it in ages so I was just a bit taken aback! It was a bit embarrassing since I had to fumble about in my bag for about 5 mins and kept saying 'I do have it, honestly', I could tell the guy didn't think I was going to have one! I don't really mind though, since I'm old enough now

    I've only ever been ID'd on a couple of occasions, although I can't say that I particularly minded.

    It doesn't bother me when people ask nicely. What winds me up is those annoying (usually old) people who glare at you suspiciously as if you're going suddenly confess something. I mean c'mon, I don't look 17. I don't think I even look under 21. And I'm not about to steal something, so give me a break =/

    Plus, I forgot about this, you don't want to get off on the wrong foot with the guy who controls the alcohol

    I haven't been ID'ed since the day I turned 18. Wish I did though.
