Inspired by a comment in a previous post...

For those of you who are 21(or other legal drinking age in your part of the world) & older, did you have trouble when you first turned 21 (or other legal drinking age in your part of the world) and tried to buy alcohol because of your ID?

Besdies the suspicious looks and the long pauses so the person checking your ID could do math in their head.

my answer Not really. A cashier in Stop & Shop once called her manager over to check my ID even though it was my 21 ID though. It was weird more than anything. Then again I was wearing some Disney t-shirt and she probably didn't believe the ID was mine.

My roommate's friend almost got turned away at our local bar though. It was 4 days after his birthday and the first bouncer was like "No, you can't come in." We pointed out that his birthday was 4 days earlier and he passed it to the second bouncer who stared at it for a minute and said "How am I supposed to know he's 21?" My smartass roommate replied "Because his birthday is the 17th and it's the 21st." They let us in.
