I was in the opposite boat when I was young. From the age of 17 I was able to buy alcohol. I had a receding hair line and a couple of grays.

Ohhh yes this happens to me at least once a week. People are always thinking I'm 15, surprised that I drive, and referring to me as my (younger) brother's younger sister.

The line that gets me the most is when people younger than me say "what grade are you in, honey?" :lol:

As a teenager, people often thought I was older, though I'm 28 now and I'm often told that I look younger.

I was never asked my ID to buy anything in my native country, though it did happen every time when I was living in the UK ( I was 26-27 at the time).

A month ago, I had an appointment at the anaesthetist. When I went into his office, he told me that my parents should be with me to sign some papers :lol:

Yup. 27 here and everyone is shocked when I tell them my age. I student taught at an elementary school that served grades K-6 last year, and I'm fully convinced that I could have passed as a 6th grader and would have blended in with them had I not been in my "professional" attire and not been wearing makeup (I actually normally don't wear makeup because I just can't be bothered to take all the time to put it on, but I specifically did wear it when teaching just so that I'd look older and not look like one of the kids!). I have such a baby face, and being only 5'1" certainly doesn't help either. The last time I was charged a kids' price somewhere was fairly recent, when I was around 22. I was at a pizza buffet and I guess the cashier thought I was 12, because she charged me for the kids' price. :lol: But I was with my parents, and wearing casual clothes and no makeup.
