A lot of countries differ in their age limitations. @ It happens to me, I have a childish face. Though I never get my ID declined and get into any place I desire. Though there is a difference between being 24 and confused with a 16 year-old, and being confused with someone underage when you are 19. Here underage is under 18.
I guess some places do and some places don't. I worked at a movie theater when I was younger shortly after Columbine. There was a big push to make sure children weren't being admitted to R rated movies. We rarely asked for ID. The one time we did, we saw a few kids that were a few years behind us in school. We knew they were underage. The last kid in line from that group was a complete dick to one of our friends. He harassed her a lot because she was overweight and "goth". My friend working the door sold a ticket to every kid in his group. Once the dick kid got up to the front, my friend asked for ID. He didn't have any. We didn't sell him the ticket. His friends got to go in. He had to call his parents for a ride home.
it's lame to get carded at a movie when you're clearly over the age requirement, but at the grocery store i worked at, for awhile we had to card everyone no matter what age, because we got two stings by the cops. the company didn't want to lose that much money again, so I can understand why we had to do it. it wasn't a power trip at all. some of the customers i had to card were the most whiny bitches ever. one called a kid a dumbass, and another made a new girl almost cry with the fit he threw. I understand why it can irritate people, but for cashiers selling alcohol or cigarettes it's doing your job right so you don't get fired. Don't make a scene and just pull out your ID. it doesn't take that long. But for movies, i think it's pretty stupid and my cinema hardly ever cards. And my bf had someone tell him that his ID was fake and he got pretty pissed.
Look at it this way - lots of people would kill and pay a good sum of money to look younger.
my friend has this happen to him at a liquor store. Said his ID was fake, though her really was from colorado, and the ID was real. take it as a compliment tho lol
