I have always been told I look younger than my age (feel free, when you answer, to tell me if that's true). Today, my boyfriend was visiting and we volunteered at my sister's robotics competition. I went to the concession stand to get a coffee since we arrived at 7:30 and I needed a little something to help me get started lol
So I went up to the lady and was like, "Can I get a coffee?" And she goes, "Twelve year olds really shouldn't drink coffee."
Twelve? Do I look twelve to you?
And THEN my boyfriend and I were holding hands while watching a match and they told him, "Your relationship is really inappropriate. Don't you think you're a little old for her? What would your family think?"
They thought that he was his age (20) and was dating a 12 year old.
I'm 22. I'm OLDER than him!
Ugh. So embarrassing. The whole day was just a big pile of nope.
Yeah, I hear it'll be a good thing when I'm older, but you know what? People don't respect children the way they respect adults and to be an adult being paid the respect given to a child is a terrible terrible thing.
But yeah. My life is embarrassing lol - got any stories to make me feel better?

I was not there myself but a collegue of my asked in a meeting, to a collegue "do you remember that management assistant? The one with the big bumb and the face full of freckles".
The answer was short: "Sure I do, she's my wife".
Believe it or not... it was the shortest meeting in our company history :o :o0

I get similar things happening to me. I'm always mistaken for being younger than I am.
I'm an educator. I had a meeting at another elementary school one day. I arrived early, so I went to the teacher's restroom. One of the teachers at that school saw me walking in as she was going out. She gave me the double-take and then said that students shouldn't be wandering the halls or using a teacher's bathroom. I said I was a teacher there for a meeting, and she got the biggest look of embarrassment.
She thought I was in elementary school, which doesn't have children past the age of 11 by the way. 😓1
