    When I was moving into our new house, I was grabbing boxes from a liquor store (we have those in PA). It was right next to a bar, and there were a bunch of guys outside smoking. They asked if I needed any help, and I politely told them no. They then asked if I was moving back into college. I was pretty flattered considering I was 29 at the time. I just laughed and let them know I was well out of college, but thanks for the compliment!

    lol I don’t make a lot of people guess my age so I don’t know what the general consensus is… but I think that it probably depends a LOT on what i’m wearing and doing. I have had people think I’m in my late 20s or seem shocked when they find out I’m only 25 (I’m a lawyer so when I’m all dressed up and being lawyerly)… but then the other day someone thought I was in high school. lol. So who knows πŸ™‚

    I’m 21 and most people guess around 15-16. It’s embarrassing. Carded for life. =(

    I just turned 27 but most people guess that I’m younger, (23 or so).

    I had a bad stomach bug during Christmas break senior year of college and made my mom go to the doctor with me.  The doctor never spoke to me and advised my mom to “keep her home from school for a couple days.”  I don’t know how old he thought I was, but I’m guessing about 15.

    It depends. If people have no reference point (like when I went to school, how much work experience, etc.) they tend to guess younger. But if I’m around my older sister, people ALWAYS guess that I’m older than her. I think it has to do with the way we dress, I spend more $ on clothes and tend to be more sophisticated in my style while she still shops at teeny bopper stores.

    So I’m almost 29 and people with no reference point usually guess about 2 years younger than my actual age.

    I get pegged for late 20’s or 30…and I’ll be 38 in about 2 weeks.  I love when people say that.

    But I was just at the liquor store yesterday and they never card me there…so that’s a bummer.

    Some people think I’m around 26 or 27, but I’m only 22. I think it’s because I wear glasses and keep my hair cropped short. And I wear a serious facial expression on accident. Oops. 

    I still get carded, though.

    I’ve been told I look younger…by a 13 year old…so, maybe he doesn’t really know what 31 looks like. I think I look my age.

    When I was 21 I got carded for buying an R-rated zombie movie :P. It gets annoying.

    And actually I want to add that it also depends on what I’m doing/wearing when people guess. At work, they always guess older because I’m in a suit and act a lot more mature but on the weekend at a bar I sometimes still get carded.

    I used to look younger, but apparently I grew into my age.
