I took this as a compliment though others don't always see it that way. I was buying a bottle of wine from our corner store when the boy behind the counter asked for ID. I handed it over, his jaw dropped, and he said "wow - I have never ID'd anyone as OLD as you before"... The emphasis on the old was very definitely his. What was so hysterical was that I was only 26 at the time... but it is always flattering to be thought younger than you are. These days I turn cartwheels when I get ID'd.
