    Well, went to the Quik-E-Mart at lunch to get my daily Tall Boy, and wouldn't you know it? The sweet young thing at the counter carded me :)

    I haven't been carded since George H.W. Bush was in office! :bluelaugh::laugh::bluelaugh:

    Damn, I'm feelin' good about myself!:thumbup:

    Hehe, I got carded at the grocery store the other day. I probably should have been flattered, but I was sick and grumpy so it just ticked me off.

    The last time I got carded, I was in my 30's. My response was "God Bless you".

    There's some places that have a policy of carding everybody. Usually bars not stores though. I've run across some in airports.

    I started growing a 1/2" beard almost a year ago and have only been carded *once* since then, and only because that wasn't in the northwest. I've only just turned 25, so really I think the northwest states are lax and they should legally be carding more.

    I was in the Pheonix airport and the waiter carded me because I am not ancient like you guys and he was not sure how old I was. 3 minutes later he carded a gentleman in his 60's. LOL. Said it was policy.

    Yeah, I'm mid-'30s, and the only time I've been carded in recent memory was at a "we card EVERYONE" place.

    Many years ago my wife was dropping off our oldest son in middle school. He later told us that a friend of his had remarked to him that his older sister was hot. That made her whole year.

    A bit off topic but that does post an interesting question. In todays society where everybody is protecting their personal information from identity theft, is it a good idea to have our address visible to others? Heck, we dont hand the clerk our bank card for our security, why should we make them privy to our home address?

    You can't go to the DMV and get an address from somebody's license plate anymore? Most phone numbers are unlisted or lack a street address.

    Think about it and talk amongst yourselves.

    A while back 21 years or so ago, I had returned home after college, my dad and I stopped by a local supermarket for a 6 pack of beer. I bought the beer, he bought the wine. The young cashier, a young woman whom I had had graduated high school with, let me buy my beer and then proceeded to card my dad. Although we look a lot alike, not that much alike. I said something to the effect, "But he is my dad!" She said, "yeah right" It sure made my dads day. I think he basked in that for about 3 or 4 days.

    I don't know whether to feel insulted or happy when I'm carded. I usually frown because I want my beer- now damn it!

    I was feeling pretty studly 10-12 years ago when an adorable biscut at Safeway asked if I wanted help getting half a bag of groceries out to my truck. Finally dawned on me a few weeks later that it was their new customer service policy. DOH!!!
