In Ontario, the legal age to buy alcohol is 19.
I got asked for ID at the Beer Store yesterday. "Carded," for those of you in other jurisdictions.
I stared at the guy for a second, pulled out my driver's license and handed it to him. He read it, eyes widened, and handed it back, muttering, "Sorry."
I said, "That's ok."
He said, "You know, I'm supposed to ask anyone who looks under 30 if they have ID. But I guess I was WAY OFF."
I said, "Dude, you don't have to rub it in."
I have always looked younger than I am, I suppose. But TWENTY YEARS younger? C'mon, when I was 18 years old Ronald Reagan was president. Jim Bakker was getting jiggy with Jessica Hahn. Gary Hart was getting jiggy with Donna Rice.
You get the idea.
