I could understand how a minor would get frustrated getting carded as he was trying to buy beer. What I cant understand is when adults get pissed off when they get carded... I mean, i just baught 2 Bud Ice Duece Deuce. (Dont buy a 40 normally, its a status thing)
I got carded. So be it. I am 27 years old, and I took it like a compliment. I have seen people get pretty upset, like the attendant was wasting the customers time or something...

Perhaps nine or ten years ago, my mom was at a liquor store and they asked to see ID. The only thing was, she was about 45 at the time, and I was about 7 or 8, (and I was with her!). Perhaps the clerk had spent too much time "sampling the goods"...
Anyway, my mom didn't take it too well, as I suppose she thought he was trying to hit on her.

Being born in 1962 I am not asked for "proof" that much any more, however when it does happen and they look my license it is fun to watch the wheels spin as they try to figure out my age (39 and holding thank you), This happens mostly after leaving work and stopping at Tops ( The local supermarket to pick up some of that oh so good Tequiza).

I get carded every time and I am 30 yrs. old. I love it. My wife is 32 and she gets carded too. A couple of years ago I even got carded getting into a rated R movie. I really like it when I coach little league soccer and the soccer mom's think I am in high school.

Im a cashier at a grocery store, and we card for cigarettes for everyone who looks like they might be under 26, yep, 26. Even though you have to be 18, i have to card you if I think you look like you are under 26. Go figure. Oh well.

It doesn't offend me at all when I get carded.....as a matter of fact, any bar I go to that I am not known at I expect it each and every time....reminds me also of the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office patrolman when I lived in JAX........They had a field day carding me over and over again thinking I was underage....

I am almost 19 and Ii get carded almost everywhere I go! If I want to see a rated R movie, I get carded. Playing pool with my friends I get carded every 5 minutes! I can't stand it! I know I look young but its annoying when you are hanging out with friends and people are always asking for ID.
Does it even matter these days. Give me an hour and I can make an id with my picture and an age over 21! But hey, I am in college and old enough to do anything but buy a beer or rent a car (in the US) so what do I know? Instead of supporting the american economey I will be in another country drinking my ass off (legally) over spring break.

Hey KROC, I was originally born and raised in Rochester!!Tell me something though, are they still very strict about proofing up there?I was there for a few days back in 2000, and I got proofed repeatedly by the same bartender!Seemed more airtight up there than here in Florida!

I'm 36 but still get carded. Yeah, I look much younger than that, maybe coz I've been served so many times and alcohol is a preservative. But anyway, I don't mind at all. It's their job, and in their shoes I'd rather be safe than sorry myself. "Risk my job AND the place's liquor license, or annoy a customer... Gee, what should I do?" It helps that I'm usually with my wife who doesn't look her age either (34 next month)
Why should anyone mind if they have their ID? BUT! Last year at a Safeway, we bought a 30 pack, and the guy not only carded me, who was buying it, but also her who was just with me!! We had walked there and she didn't have hers, so the idiot didn't serve me. I was 35 and she was 33, for crying out loud! THAT pissed me off, so I guess I gotta modify my answer. Yup, I can see getting pissed getting shot down at age 35!
