When was the last time you were carded?

Asked by Dutchess_III (38442points) April 22nd, 2018

Last time was in 1995. I was 35 years old, but actually looked quite a bit younger. Dude asked for some ID and I asked if a picture of my infant grandson would do. SMH.

When I was 23. I have been going to sports bar hopping bar hopping with my dad since I was 15. I didn’t drink just ate chicken wings and played the multiple choice online game.

Last year, I’m old enough to remember Truman as President. The reason given was insurance and they had recently sold to an under-age person and were caught by the authorities !

I’ve never been carded.

On my 21st birthday my brother in law asked me to go buy some bear. My ID was not checked then or ever.

About 3 years ago. I was 52, and buying some decongestant cough medicine. You only have to be 18 to buy it.

Well, you should be at least 21 to buy a bear!

I just got a valid ID a few years ago because getting carded was hit and miss. I still get carded and I am 40. When I didn’t have a valid ID I barely ever shaved since when I am rocking a beard I don’t get carded.

Some grocery stores here card everybody rather than make the employees make a judgment call. I’m in my mid-50s and look it.

Grocery store when I buy alcohol. I think I bought beer sometime in 2017. They have to scan your ID for the register to accept the beer transaction I think, so it has nothing to do with whether you look old enough or not.

At a club/bar situation I think it was ten years ago in TN. That was weird. I was around 40 years old. They card everyone though. The place is actually a restaurant with a bar. They card when you first enter, because it’s a place that allows smoking.

When my head is shaved, I get carded a lot. I keep it clipped, because my hair is mostly grey, and white now (on my head.)

I look much younger than I am, until you see the white…

Someone carded me a year ago.

I would add that people get carded, for multiple reasons. It’s not just an age thing…

I get carded all the time at chemist shops.

I have that happy knack: the verve, panache and aplomb, to display a demeanour that demands – lock up your ephedrine and codeine.

Clubs “card” people so they have reliable recourse in the event of an incident.

I get in free or half price to many Chinese museums and tourist attractions due to my age It’s a bit disappointing when they give a glance and apply the discount without even asking to see proof of age.
