Today, I went to buy some beer using my fake ID, when the cute cashier and I started flirting. When he asked me how old I was, I said without thinking, "Nineteen." FML

If you are that dumb, you don't need beer

I guess next time you'll try using it on an ugly cashier. YDI

Or you never know. Could have been cashiers way of finding out if she was legal or not. My friend works at a local pub in my city, and he does the same. Hes caught several using a fake ID.

Or or or... Bear with me here... Maybe next time... Wait for it.... They WONT go and try to buy beer ilegally! What a strange concept!

#38 Then your life would be worthless....duh

Did you know that the USA is the only country in the world that op cannot get served alcohol?

#107. That's not true. If you meant to say first world country then you would be correct

YDI for wanting to drink beer

In Greece it's legal from 17. Allthough you can't drive before you're 18, but you can get married and have concentual sex from 15 y.o. Weird, arbitrary age requirements ftw.

Lol @ the us and their 21 law, it's 18 here in Canada..

RocketNinjaFish 12

the legal age is only 18 in Australia :)

Um..... Not quite. It's illegal in countries like Afghanistan and Libya.

Yeah but it's the people who are this stupid buying the beer, instead of being the person having someone else buying the beer.

Psshhh Wth you're talking about homer Simpson! Mmmmmh beer... Harggggggg... Ah beautiful wonderful beer, cause and answer to all life's problems... Feeling the sudden urge to watch homer vs prohibition again...

Time to start doing crack..can't get too much dumber than this.

They say that only drunk people and little kids tell the truth…were u drunk when you bought the beer or are you still acting like a little kid using a fake I.D.?

I feel like OP is one of those people that should stay away from alcohol in general.

I would have had a save for this: "how old are you?" "nineteennn ninety one is when I was born."

Nineteen is the new twenty-one.

70's pic is the only acceptable duck face. EVER.

Duckface is only acceptable when it is on a duck. As for the FML, I say YDI for trying to use a fake ID.

70- Great. You said "I'm Canada" and now I wanna watch Hetalia. Okay, that's total thread jacking, so let's add something about the FML. Why not just get someone else to buy it for you?

Then what's the point of having a fake at all?

Aren't you allowed to buy alcohol after 18 years of age?

I don't know.. I think it's a good thing that the legal drinking age in the U.S. is 21 because people have to drink responsibly and I honestly think that 18 year olds are too young and immature to drink responsibly. Drinking affects your judgment first, which is basically what causes people to drink and drive, which is never a good idea.

DarthCory 7

Hell, quite a few 20+ year olds I know are too immature to handle it.

#32 if you had time to type out what you did in parenthesis then I think you had time to just go back and correct you mistake..

Agreed, 47. Sorry but 18-21 really isn't that big of an age difference. You don't magically mature in those 3 years, it's not as if you're gaining tons of life experience and wisdom. It depends on the type of person that you are, not necessarily your age.

I agree that 18 year olds are irresponsible drinkers, but I also think that making it illegal for them to drink at that age makes them even more irresponsible, because they do stupid things to not get caught drinking, such as trying to drive home instead of calling their parents for a ride or taking their school's shuttle (just examples). Not only that, but making it illegal makes it cool to drink because you're a rebel or some dumb kid logic like that. On the other hand, if you're 21 and you constantly drink and party, you're a loser. Also, it never stops them from getting alcohol anyway.

Yeah, a drinking age of 21 really helps lessen the risk of drink driving. That's why the US has a drink driving rate four times higher than that of the UK and Ontario, which have drinking ages of 18 and 19 respectively. That "no alcohol until you're 21" is certainly working for you guys in that respect...

Ya... But who the **** wants to live in the UK or Ontario?

...clearly you've never been to either place. You're pretty ignorant.

The logic for lowering the drinking age from 21 to 18 in Australia was pretty simple. At the time, conscription was occurring for the Vietnam war. So you were old enough to be forced to fight and die for your country, but you couldn't buy alcohol. For a country like the US, which is so obsessed with 'freedom and liberty' that you allow ridiculous gun laws for the sake of you 'rights', but don't allow an 18 year old adult to purchase alcohol, you seriously need to look at your priorities. RIP to the victims of the latest senseless deaths.

I wouldn't mind living in the countrysides of uk, visit Stratford oxford etc on my off days from growing my desired plantation on my piece of property so GTFO thanks

But their judgment is good enough to vote and decide to serve in the military. It seems kind of like a double standard. Sorry.

MassiveBerry 9

In Russia they drink alcohol from a young age so their bodies get used to it.

Call me crazy but i think the lower the drinking age the better in belgium the drinking age is 16 and kids learn how to drink responsibly from their parents and it seemsto be working pretty well over there

#75, Our gun laws are not "ridiculous," as you say, but protect us from criminals who disregard gun laws and the possibility of a tyrannical genocidal government, like the one that took power in Germany after Adolf Hitler banned guns and then proceeded to slaughter thousands of his own defenseless unarmed citizens. Similarly, if your government turned on you, you'd be screwed. And I'll thank you for not politicizing a recent tragedy that would have happened regardless of gun laws, given the impressive amount of explosives found in James Homes's booby trapped apartment. I'll also thank you for not bringing gun laws into an unrelated discussion.

Sucks for you because in Canada age 19 is legal. Either way, FYL.

In Canada, 18 is legal in Alberta and Quebec.

In mexico they don't care how old you are!

In Australia 18 is the legal age! Yay! :D

**** Canada. USA! USA! USA!

In Ireland, you drink when you come out of the womb.

You've got some beautiful Irish features in your profile pic, 143.

Yeah I had to think about it for a sec b/c I'm used to 18 in Canada...

143 - In Ireland, we don't pretend we were born in another country just to post a comment to get thumb-ups.

Sucks for you because you have to live in Canada.

No you dont I live in Washington and I have driven up to Canada an bought beer no problem

In Holland, 16 is the legal age for beer.

Well 18 or 19. Depending where you are from. Provincial law dictates that. Canada is amazing by the way.

It's 18 in Alberta, Manitoba, and Quebec

biglittlehead 12

All these years I thought I had to wait until I was 21.

tweetbaby14 18

176, she didn't say or imply she was Irish. It's called making a joke about another culture; people do things like that, shocking right?

195: Richer and freer than the USA, with better education, public healthcare, stronger beer, and we're not hated around the world; yeah, I think I'll stick with Canada.

Where I come from, they don't care how old you are, they just want your money.

I never thought science was awkward.

I meant to say "silence". I need to proofread more.

25 - It's okay autocorrect is the devil.

Never even noticed until you guys said it was wrong haha

I don't even care that it was a typo, nor do I care that it was irrelevant; awkward science is one of the best concepts I've ever heard of in my life.

#25, MURIKKA, Your error was funnier than the FML. Thanks!

Is that a sequel to Weird Science?

PhishloverA 14

I agree #26. Today I was texting my girlfriend and I meant to say the pot roast was still cooking and my autocorrect changed it to Poptarts

PhishloverA 14

#7, science is only awkward when you're being taught about sex

Tell her that you're really a pedophile and you were just trying to get into her pants.

hotPinklipstick 24

I'm sure he wasn't really flirting, instead he was using reverse psychology. Better luck next time.

Yeah but who knows he might of still sold it to her if he did like her.

#10, this FML is not an example of reverse psychology. The cashier asked the OP a direct question regarding her age, there's nothing reverse about that.

every1luvsboners 11

I would suggest giving him a rim-job followed by a hand-job to prove you're old enough to buy the booze. He knows there's no way a 19 year old knows the proper procedure for a rim-job. Cops around here don't ask for ID - they ask for hand-jobs and rim-jobs.

God bless you Boners, you're truly a credit to the human race.

every1luvsboners 11

Shrike, your comments are the best. I do fap to them from time to time.

DarthCory 7

A handjob and a rimjob at the same time is called a rusty trombone. The more you know.

Thanks dusty! Ya learn something new every day

*cue the random 12 year old asking what a rim job is*

PhishloverA 14

One time my mom and I got pulled over and the cop came to my mom's window and asked her for a hand job and a rim job instead of asking for her license and registration. Just kidding

Fake IDs never work and it's a felony offense to carry one, all in all it's a bad idea. Some clerks would keep the ID to show it to police

Actually it's illegal for them to keep your fake. They can turn you down and call the cops. But they can't keep the id

It is not illegal for them to keep the fake. ID's are issued by and belong to the state and must be surrendered upon request. Since it was being used illegally the clerk has the right to keep it and turn it over to authorities.

jojimugo 20

The statement never work is incorrect. If they never worked people would never try to use them.

noonenoeone 22

Ha, I stayed a week in Vegas on a fake ID no problem. I actually used that ID for over 2 years and only had it taken once. My boy new the bouncer that took it so I got it back and continued using it. Fake IDs DO work!
