    I haven’t been carded at all lately and I’m only 22.  Probably because I don’t go out with a bunch of people that look younger than 21 and I act mature and not like I’m trying to get away with anything.

    I have been carded about five times since I was 17.  Only carded once since my twenty-first birthday. :O  Thought it was cool when I was younger, now it just makes me sad.  I don’t want to look old!

    I still do and I’ll be 29 next month. I went to lunch with my sister last week for Sister’s Day (fun day where we shop,lol) and the lady wanted to see my ID. I guess for procedure. I don’t look under 21…maybe I should be offended that they think I’m trying to get drinks or something…

    Only when I’m a regular.  Otherwise I tend to need two forms of ID, even when stopped by police.  I carry my college ID as a backup.

    No one ever believes BF and I are 24… I thought about buying a drink at the corner store last night, but realized there was no way in hell I would be able to get it with BF not having his wallet.

    His nickname is “Babyface”.   He’ll be 25 in three weeks, and old ladies still give him coupons in the grocery with instructions of “be sure to give these to your mom!”

    Sometimes yes, sometimes no. One guy at the grocery store always cards me when I buy beer despite the fact that he knows who I am now (I think). Sometimes at restaraunts I do, sometimes I don’t. I dont go to bars and clubs and stuff though so idk about those places.

    I remember on my 21st birthday, my mom was coming to nyc to visit so I wanted to buy her some wine since she loves it and since I was 21 I thought it would be kind of fun to exercise my new found right. I went into the wine shop next to where I work and went to pay for the wine AND THEY NEVER CARDED ME. I guess maybe because it’s a wine-only shop not many underage kids go in wanting to get drinks or something, but still. I was disappointed lol

    It varies for me. If I’m somewhere “younger” like a nighclub, I still get carded even though i’m 25. If I’m somewhere “older” like a classy bar or restaurant, they don’t care at all. I’ve been with underage people at “older” places and they didn’t get carded.

    I still get carded at the grocery store, but I saw them card a person who was clearly in their 50s, so I don’t feel like that counts.

    I haven’t been carded in bars for the past year or so.  I stopped having my wallet at the ready about 6 months ago, which feels weird – I just order a drink and they bring it!  I’m 31.

    @prairiegirl: I am still 21 and will gladly trade places with you.  I haven’t been carded in ages. I feel so old.
