Prove it to me

There are several ways for one's confidence to receive a bit of a boost and one of those is a cashier thinking two 30-something women are just college girls and requesting to see proof of age.

*looks at pictures*

You aren't under 30?

*scratches his head*

You Could have fooled me.

HA HA! I'm just the opposite! The clerks usually see the kids trailing behind me and do not believe that I'm under thirty. Wait a minute..that's not funny, that's just sad!

You know, Kadi, we were without children. That must be the trick....

Rae, isn't that absolutely the best?!? I have been carded many times since turning 21, but none brought me as much unbridled joy as last year when, while out to dinner to celebrate my 35th birthday, I was carded by the waiter when I ordered a margarita. Here's to good genes!

I've been carded once, at Applebee's, about 3 years ago. But then the waiter told me it's a matter of policy, and all flattery ended there...

Alisha- it definitely is the best!

Eduardo, I have had similar experiences. Once, I was with a friend who mostly definitely appeared younger than I, and when the waitress requested her I.D., meaning well I am sure, she looked over at me and said, "I don't need yours. You look old enough." I knew in that exact moment, she had to be in her lower twenties herself. I confess to thinking rather satifactorily that perhaps now, years later, she remembers that moment each time she isn't carded.
