Bad Judge of Age

FB Fan Page:

Over the years I have gotten numerous reactions from people whom I card for alcohol. Some of this is certainly caused by my own inability to judge age. I prefer to err on the side of caution, so if I think you look young, you get carded.

Approached a table one evening with a happy looking couple enjoying animated conversation. He looked old enough, but she struck me as youthful. She had a full, round face with no wrinkles but definitely a few freckles from the sun. Her nappy hair was loose, and she had a number of colorful tattoos. Next to the table, I knew she was wearing patchouli oil.

When the couple ordered wine, I politely requested her ID. Her eyes became even wider, and she stood and hugged me. She hugged me right there in the middle of the restaurant. I laughed and hugged her back, and said, "Something tells me you are over 21."

She was absolutely beaming as she handed me her card. My new friend was in her forties.
