Re: Carded

I'm a few years younger than my husband, and look younger than I am. Plus his hair is prematurely gray.

Getting carded is nothing. Just wait until someone thinks she's your daughter...

Re: Carded

I've worked in bars/restaurants and usually the "rule" is to card anyone that looks under 35. Sorry!

Many times, women get carded more as a compliment. There have been times when I carded a women who I figured to to be old enough and she was actually MUCH younger than I expected, by a solid 8-10 years, still 21+. I blame the tanning bed.

Re: Carded

Legal Age is here 18, not 21 like in USA. The last time I went to the local casino (I go a couple of times per year) was the first time they've ever not carded me. I'm 29 and 6 months.

Oh, and some security guys / bouncers will card girls just so that they have a name and address to stalk later.

Re: Carded

I get carded every f****** time and I'm 20 haha. It's kind of different here in Spain. Girls are let in (some of them are under 18) and guys are always asked for their IDs lol

This, and keep in mind that a lot of bouncers are active members in the clubby / bar hopping lifestyle. I've been a bouncer and have seen it happen. Sometimes they card just to embarrass the guys or to give them a hard time. Not necessarily always the case but, if it happens, don't sweat it..it may just be petty middle school stuff.
