I’m 27.

I almost always get carded at the wine store.

I usually get carded at clubs/bars (but they card EVERYONE in NYC).

I never get carded at restaurants/grocery store.

I’m 23, but I look about 17, so I get carded everywhere, except in the one liquor store I go to alot because they recognize me. I used to even get carded when I studied abroad in Germany and you only need to be 16 to drink there (18 for some clubs, but I was 20/21 at the time)

I’m 25, almost 26, and I’d say I get carded 1 out of 4 times.  1/2 the time I get asked my birth date or age.

It really depends though on where I am (always at the ABC store, less at restaurants), who I’m with (do they look older, have facial hair, dress older, etc.), and what I’m wearing (work clothes or weekend clothes).

I always get carded at the liquor store, and always at clubs (but they check everyone’s ID at clubs here just to get in).

I never get carded at bars or restaurants.

However, when I lived in the UK, I got carded for buying a kitchen knife. Apparently it’s not legal to sell knives to anyone under the age of 16. I was 25, lol.

40 and I get carded all the time.  I always make fun of the FH as he never does and they always do with me.  I do the happy dance every single time.

I am 27. I rarely get carded at resturants – but at bars yes (they typically card at the door, so you don’t have an option) and at the grocery store its about a 50/50 chance I will get carded.

I’m 25 and I get carded 99% of the time. It’s rare that I don’t get carded. My sister who is 23 NEVER gets carded.

Only 22 but when I lived in Michigan I got carded everywhere, they are extremely strict about drinking there.  Now I live in chicago and the only place I get carded is at the grocery store or huge national restaurant chains where they really enforce carding rules. It’s as though no one else really cares how old I am lol.

I am 30 and get carded ALL THE TIME.  Sometimes when I am with my husband, who is 31, they will look at him and then say “nevermind” after they asked for my ID.  WTF?

True story – I got carded for an R-rated movie last year.

29 and EVERY SINGLE TIME.

Heck, the last time I bought from the ABC store, the guy kept turning my license every way possible to make sure it wasn’t a forgery.  He kept it way long than he kept my FI’s (we bought from the same store and person before).  

I wanted to say “Yeah, dude, it’s the BEST FORGERY EVER.  Straight from the DMV complete with watermark.”  Sheesh.  

I even got carded for buying my FI’s cigs.  

Looking young is wonderful, except when you get carded all the damn time.  

The only time I DO NOT get carded is when it’s people I know checking me out and they a) went to school with me or b)are former co-workers.
