I am 22 and people still think I'm 15-16. Whenever I run into my old friends I had in middle school and high school that I haven't seen for a few years, they say I look the same as back then, too ^^;

Brace yourselves everyone.

Young adults who still like to think they are teens are incoming.

On a serious note, I get mistaken for someone who looks like 18 due to my manly beard when I'm in public. I'm actually 16. This doesn't happen tho when I shave my beard.

To be a little squirt or a grown man is easily decided by the presence of your beard. Since I still do school I'm always on the little squirt side.

The gas company shut ours off for no reason so we went without either hot water or heat for a couple of days, and when one of their people came to turn it back on I was the only one there and he didn't believe me when I told him how old I was, and I didn't know where my wallet was so I couldn't prove my age, so we ended up having to wait another day or two before they turned it back on.

Don't get me started... I've even been mistaken for being as young as 13 by kids near that age. The conversation that we were having became extremely awkward when I corrected them; however, alot of people also mistake me for being in my thirties/forties.

When i started my first job (I was 23), most of the people there thought I was about 17.

Yeah I've been carded at the movies a couple times over the last few years. But then there are times when I don't get carded buying drinks. It's weird and random.

Different answer from different people, average guessing is about 10yrs +/- my actual age.

I have never been ID'ed for smokes, like twice a year for booze, and 1 time I was ID buying a manga in B&N.

I'm in my 40's and I still get carded. When I was 20 I got mistaken for a 6th grader.
