Do you look your age?

I just turned 30 on the 10th and I still get carded everywhere. I even had a cashier not want to ring me up at Walgreens because it was during school hours and she thought I was cutting class! Granted I did have I bookbag on, but it had my laptop in it. I don't think I look that young.

  • No. It's a running joke. When I ask people how old I am (or, when my girl asks people to guess, which is a game she enjoys playing), they *always* give a number between 28-32. I'll be 48 next month.

  • Nope. People always think I’m older.

    I had just started a new job and a guy came in, clearly stressed, his kids were running around like maniacs and destroying things. As I made his order I tried to cheer him up a little. I said “kids are a blessing eh?” And he sighed and said “oh I know. How many have you got?”.
    Given what I said, I could understand the commend so I smiled and said “I don’t have any”
    He replied “really? A woman of your age?”

    My fake smile dropped and I said “sir how old do you think I am?”
    “Um... 32?”
    “Sir, I’m 17.”

    We didn’t speak the rest of the transaction.

    I’m rarely ID’d. I was buying alcohol when I was 15. I’ve never had your problem.

    • Lol oh wow. He pretty much doubled your age!

    • Yup! I’m constantly being estimated in my mid thirties and I’ve only recently turned 25...

      That said, most people say I sound like a teenager on the phone.

  • People have thought I'm older than I actually am ever since I was 13-14. When I was 16 more than once people thought I was around 25-26 :D

  • From the profile photo i would say you look much younger than 30. Happy birthday by the way.
    Not a very good example here but am turning 34 in few months have a very thick beard and bulked body and almost every time i buy alcohol the ask me for my card and it drives me nuts. I do understand the feeling and it sucks. You are not alone friend :(

    • Thank you! And yes, I'll always get carded. Even if I'm with a group of people, they won't always ask for everyone's ID but I'll def have to show mine lol. It's the cheeks, I know it.

    • Hahahah it's always the cheeks , god damn cheeks. Tried to cover them with the beard still get busted. On the other side it's kinda had a positive message that we take care of our skin and we look good ''young'' We are hot.

  • despite being 35 and balding people still seem shocked that i'm older than 25. i definitely get carded all the time. i feel like i have a young face but figure the balding should be a dead give away that i'm older

  • I look a few years younger than my age, partly because I'm skinny and therefore have a thinner face than I would if I were heavier.

    My oldest cousin is 20 years older than me and we've met lots of people who assume, somewhat to their embrassment, that she is my mother.

  • I look around 25-26 apparently, I have always looked younger than I am but I prefer it now I'm older, hated it for getting alcohol and getting into clubs in my teens. My mate is 27 and has been mistaken for his 26 yo gf's dad on two occasions in the last 3 years, she would still pass for 20ish. My wife looks early 20's but is hitting 31 in a couple of months. :D

  • No, I look a lot older. I've been able to get beer without getting carded for a while. even when I was 14 I didn't get carded to get into rated R movies, or to get cigarettes (sometimes).

  • I think my age is finally catching up with me. But everyone thinks I’m in my early to mid 20’s. One of my patients asked if I was out of school. I asked her what she meant and she thought I was in high school 🤣🤣

  • I get mistaken for a high schooler. Sometimes even a middle schooler.

    Also on a side note, you don’t look 30! I remember thinking you were my age based on looks alone. You have a very young looking face!

  • Honestly, I have no idea. Everyone in my life looks young for their age... but then again, I get mistaken for a middle aged wife and mother all the time. People ask me how my kids are. It’s getting a little offensive.

  • You definitely don’t look like your age Char! Completely younger and Happy belated Birthday. I’ve been mistaken as a 16 year old many times 😕 it’s frustrating and annoying

  • Nope. I'm 22 and people say I look 16 or 17. I went to buy a bottle of tequila once and the cashier almost called the cops because he thought my ID was fake. I legit get carded ANYWHERE I go.

  • It depends on where I am and how I dress. In the city I study in, I never ever get carded, even if I wear sweats and zero makeup. When I visit my family in Germany though, I always get asked for my ID, unless I'm dressed up and have my hair and makeup done.

  • Nope. I got asked to sign up for monthly donations to Scope (a charity) the other day and then the dude stopped and looked me up and down, stared for a second then asked how old I am. I told him I'm 21 and he said 'hmm, I think you're a little too young to sign up right now but go home, look at the website and show your family'. Like... what? 😂😂😂 Dude must think I'm like 16 or something.

  • I'll be 30 soon... and I look younger... And even though it might sound fun, it can be very frustrating - especially during job interviews...

  • I’ve gotten mixed answers. Some say I look my age and that I’m just short as’f, while others say I look about 3-4 years younger than my age.
