when i was buying a wine! shock. Yes I hardly look 21 but I'm only 30 and hardly ancient looking either! I just laughed it off but think I would have felt better if she'd kept her mouth shut! hmmBetter still she could have asked me for it anyway just to humour me a little grin. Next stop was Boots for some antiwrinkle cream wink

I got asked for some last Christmas, I was 34 and with my 12 year old son at the time! I really thought he was taking the piss.

I got asked for id the other day. I said that I didn't have it what with being 27 and not thinking i would need it... she just put it through hmm Why ask if you don't care about seeing it??? (I would have been stroppy had she not sold it to me obv)

grin I remember being on holiday in the the States when I was about 30 and being miffed that the doorman at a bar didn't ask me for ID. YAB a little U, although the checkout woman would have been better to think the thought silently.

I picked up a pregnancy test with my shopping when DD was about 8 months old......the checkout assistant felt the need to comment on the fact that there wouldn'#t be much age gap shock

i was rejected for a flyer for an indie night on my uni campus yesterday. i am 26 and obviously not hip anymore! I made myself even less hip in the eyes of the uber-cool 18 year old chick handing out said leaflets saying" why do you think I wouldn't go to an indie night exactly??? I was going to indie nights when you were cacking in your nappy!" blush

I had the same thing in Lidl last week. Was buying wine, the 'kid' didn't even look up at me. I said sarcastically "You could at least humour me and ask." To which I thought he would jokily ask for ID, but he said "It's ok Ma'am, I can see you are well over 21." All serious. Not a drop of shame.
I hate him!

I remember being very pleased when a boy called over the supervisor before putting my wine through. Why, I thought, he obviously sees me as a peer and thinks I'm not much older than than him. Do you think I might be underage? I said smarmily

He said, sorry, no, I'm just not old enough to sell it.

look, face it, middle-age is staring you in the face grin

GTCT - so envy. What's worse is dh get asked for Id without fail every time we visit the states and he's 4 years older than me. Doesn't believe me when I tell him it's just the American waitresses falling for his English accent and their way of flirting. (TBH I don't either but we i can hardly let it go to his head now can I?)

I was stopped last week while shopping to complete a survey. I was stopped with the words..."I'm asking all ladies 55 or over if......"
AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH I'm 42. I now feel ancient. <<shuffles off in fleecy fur lined bootees>>

lol @ CherryChapstick grin

My young looking brother got asked if he was the new YTS at work when he was 29. He is 42 now and still look about 30 envy

CherryChapstick Fri 03-Oct-08 13:11:37

Lou, my DH is the same! He is 40, 5 years older than me.
I hate him too! grin

Thinking about it maybe I'm ageing prematurely and it's a hereditary thing. My dad once took dd(9) shopping with him when she was a baby and had her in a sling only to overhear 2 women obviously thinking dd was his commenting "he's way too old to be a dad" (he was 45 at the time!!)

Checkout woman in asda refused to sell me a bottle of wine few months ago because I didn't have id.

Had a huge shop, over £100, and 1 bloody bottle of wine. Only had debit card, left bag & wallet in car. She told me if I was that bothered to go back to my car and bring up id.

I'm 32. Should have been flattered but was furious as she's served me loads of times when I have my boys with me.

Witch was probably just jealous of my youthful looks grin

i got half-id'd in lidl once. was bending down with my hair in front of my face loading up my trolley with wine. checkout girl said 'have you got any...' i looked up and she said 'oh, don't worry'. bloody mortifying angry

My Mum(55) is constantly being mistaken for the Mum of my two boys 5 & 1. GReat for her and all that, but sometimes it's when I'm there too. I want to shout WHO AM I? My Mum said they must think I'm the teenage daughter from her first marriage hmm. I'm 31
