Okay so I'm 18 years old soon to be 19 and the other day I went to the cinema to see a 15R movie. My friend and I got stopped at the desk and asked for our ID, which I was shocked about because it's only a 15 and surely we look older than that... Does this mean we both look younger than 15 or do they ask pretty much everyone for their ID?

i don't think you should be offended by this. just a person doing their job. if you weren't of age and somehow got caught the person could lose their job
it's funny though, i do remember being slightly offended but also proud to prove my id when i was younger... at a certain age you are flattered to be ID'd. I like getting carded buying booze or whatever... makes me feel like there's a chance people see me as much younger than i am0

With some girls it is really hard to estimate the age... some of my pupils are 13-15 and they do look to be around 18yo... and the other way around... I wouldn´t say it is offensive, they are doing their jobs, if there is an age-related restriction be prepared to show your ID anytime... even if you´re 25, 30, 35... sometimes they just ask people randomly I guess... Once, there was a guy in front of me buying cigarettes, the guy was obviously rather old (in his 60s) still the cashier asked him for his ID... :-/1
