This thread is funny. I look younger than I am, and often get carded going into bars, etc. My funny story is about NOT getting carded.
My dad and I went to a nicer restaurant in his area. He and his wife were pretty well-known there, as much as 'regular' patrons can be known. Anyway, it was the first time I had been there with him, and the waiter put wine glasses in front of both of us. My dad didnt say anything at this point, but when the waiter came back and attempted to serve us BOTH wine, he just looked at him and said "What are you doing? You want to lose your license?" in a semi-playful, semi-serious way. Well, the waiter apologized and took my glass away. He went over to talk to the cook and we saw them talking. Later, my dad found out that this guy thought he was cheating on his wife with me! Ewww gross!
All that to say, when I was a teenager, I looked much older than I was and often wat NOT carded when I should have been. Now that I am *ahem* older, I get carded all the time (I look young). Go figure.
