So I went to the beer store last night to buy DH a case of beer. I don’t drink alcohol so the only time I go to the liquor store or beer store is to buy alcohol for others. I live in Ontario, Canada where the legal age is 19 and all alcohol is sold at either the beer store or liquor store only. Every single time I go I get asked for my ID and frankly I dont mind. I’m going to be 32 in a few months so I feel good that they ask thinking I’m 19 LOL Grated they are supposed to ask anyone who look under the age of 25 but I will take that compliment also! haha! I even get carded buying cigarettes (for others not me) or lottery tickets. I dont’ get mad I just have my ID ready to show now and I will probably be offended if they didnt ask. Does this happen to you often or ever? How old are you over the age limit?

Colorado girl (21 = legal drinking), only 23, so I don’t mind getting carded. (I do get kinda excited when they DON’T ask… haha I wonder how long until those tabels turn!)

All the time now. From about 19-21 I never ever got carded. I was 22 when I was first asked for ID. Even when I was 18 and bought some wine in Montreal, they never asked. I don’t get it, lol. I’m 23 now and every time I go to a bar, restaurant, the store, etc I’m asked to show ID. Hmmm. FH just turned 25 and always gets carded as well and it’s still strange for him since he’s from a country where you can be like 12 and buy alcohol and cigarettes and no one really cares at all.

I get carded maybe half the time. I’m 39. DH is one year younger and sometimes I get carded and he doesn’t. (The law is 21.)

It’s just been the last few years that it isn’t most of the time. When I was about 29 it went down to about 1/2 the time I would be IDed. The drinking age is 18 here.

I get carded everywhere for booze (unless we know the server) and I’m 27. I don’t mind at all!
The one time I got pissed about getting carded was at the grocery store about 3 years ago. I was buying Bridesmaids. Yes, the movie. I was going through the self checkout and the age restrictionsl warning popped up so I looked over at the cashier and gave him a wave. This little jackass, who was all of maybe 18, looks at me and says all snarky-like, “I need to see your ID. You have to be 17 to buy this.” I handed him my license and said, “Dude, I’m 24.”

Legal age here is 18 and I’m only 19, so I SHOULD get carded every time. I even look younger than I am! But its been a long time since I have been, which really makes me wonder just how many people get away with underage drinking.
Here they’re supossed to card anyone who looks under 30, too.

I rarely get carded, and it makes me sad! Here you’re technically supposed to ask anyone who looks under 40. I look under 40, dammit!

@s2bmrscook: LOL! I didn’t even know that happens when buying a movie! Well that had to make you feel good he thought your were under 17 that or he was just being a jerk!
I remember we went to a hockey tournament in Buffalo for my brother many many years ago and my dad went to the bar and they asked him for ID! I know the legal limit is 21 there but he was probably like 45 at the time! It was hilarious my dad looked at the guy and was like “seriously?”

I got carded for a pg13 movie on my 21st birthday. -_- I have one of those faces. I still get hit on by teenagers every once in a while too.
So of course I always get carded. Here hoping that when I’m in my thirties they still will and I can switch it from an insult to a compliment! Otherwise I’m going to be rather cranky! Haha.

I’m 25, and I get carded 99% of the time. Last week was the first time I can recall not getting carded at a restaurant when I ordered a glass of wine. I was excited at first, like hey I wasn’t carded! That quickly turned to, wait is the waiter implying I look old?! It’s a lose-lose situation.

I generally don’t get carded anymore. I strictly visit a liquor store down the street that has come to know my husband and I. They don’t even bother.
