Because I highly doubt that you have hit your 30s yet.

Voldemort 17-11-2016 10:45 PM

And why would you doubt that?

I'm 27 btw, so you're right, but why?

Unbreakable. 17-11-2016 10:50 PM

A) You don't look 30
B) Going by the average age on RYL and the people you associate with statistically speaking it seems unlikely

Cacoethes 17-11-2016 10:52 PM

Does that make me the youngest then?
I'm liking this! Oh to feel young again!

Unbreakable. 17-11-2016 10:53 PM

That also means you are the last one to get to RDJ's semen.

Voldemort 17-11-2016 10:57 PM

Fair enough. I'm glad I don't look 30. I used to look a lot younger than my age but my face caught up sadly.

Unbreakable. 17-11-2016 10:58 PM

I got ID'd recently when buying cigarettes and booze. Best day ever :P

Cacoethes 17-11-2016 11:05 PM

As long as a get the semen, idc.
(That is possibly the weirdest sentence I've ever written)

I never get IDd anymore :'(

Sketchy 17-11-2016 11:07 PM

I get asked for ID a lot. I'm 34. I think it's because I'm short.

Unbreakable. 17-11-2016 11:10 PM

Becky, you're low priority on the semen list anyway as you already have a kid!
And you probably just look old :P

I rarely get ID'd when I go to my usual shops as most of the staff know I am a regular, but this time there was a new employee.
People still sometimes refuse to believe my age :P

Cacoethes 17-11-2016 11:13 PM

I suppose that's fair enough!
Yeah, I do look old. Paramedics have guessed my age as mid 30's and I'm like...excuussee me!!

Tbh all the staff at asda know me and even get my cigarettes before I've even said what I want because they already know.

Unbreakable. 17-11-2016 11:16 PM

One of my two usual cigarette places also put my pack of Marlboro white menthol on the counter before I say anything. They also know I work at the cinema as it's right by my work and I sometimes go there in my work shirt during my break or also mid shift.

I have been estimated to be as young as 21. That's the upside of a round and oily face I guess. :P

Sketchy 17-11-2016 11:18 PM

I quite like people thinking I'm younger, but I hate been treated like I'm younger when people know my true age. Although I don't feel my age, so I guess I shouldn't complain.

Cacoethes 17-11-2016 11:19 PM

Ewwww menthol >.<

You're lucky then! I don't even want to know what people's estimates of my age are!!

That must be annoying Lorraine. It's good to feel young though! :)

Nymphadora Tonks 17-11-2016 11:28 PM

I have such a baby face, when I worked in Asda people used to get arse-y on the till asking how I could ID them when I looked 12 myself. I turned 26 the other week!

Cacoethes 17-11-2016 11:29 PM

I think I'd rather look younger and get asked for ID than look like I do now (old!) And not get asked for ID!

Unbreakable. 17-11-2016 11:35 PM

To be fair Tonks, you are so short and petite that you can't help but look super young!

Beckie, I don't think you look over 30. Maybe you look a year or two older than you are, but you sure don't look old!

And I have to check IDs at work because of age ratings and curfew hours and let me tell you, it is really, really hard to estimate the age of someone when you only look at them for like two seconds!

Cacoethes 17-11-2016 11:43 PM

Aww thanks lana! (Wasn't sure what to respond as I was shocked at the compliment!)

I'd be crap at checking IDs. I am sooo bad at estimating ages!
When I worked at boots many years ago, I had to ask for ID sometimes, but the age was generally 16 (to buy paracetamol and stuff) and it's a bit easier to tell if someone is under 16 than under 18 or 25

Unbreakable. 17-11-2016 11:47 PM

It wasn't a compliment, it was a factual statement.

Yeah, it is super tough especially when someone wears a lot of make up/particular clothes or has a certain body build/a baby face. Often it is only when they start looking for their ID that I can see finer details like fine lines etc that indicate they are actually in their 30s rather than 21 or similar.

And then there are parents, who think they are above the law and if they say their 12 year old kid can watch a movie rated 16 and over I can't tell them no. *rolls eyes*

Nymphadora Tonks 17-11-2016 11:51 PM

Some 14 year old's have amazing makeup skills they look in their 20's with their life together!

Apparently in America people at any age are asked for ID for alcohol (may be a complete lie, a customer told me on the till way back!)

Damn my height! :P
