I am usually thought to be around 3 years younger than I actually am, and It's really annoying. It's usually by people who wear Uggs, north faces and hollister/abercrombie/aeropastale clothes. If you shop there, don't be offended. I just think they are really overpriced.
same here!! although i wear aeropostale but only the cheaper stuff
i still get offered kids menus


once when i was 6 and was crosing the boarder, the guard thought i was a boy

no-one generally thinks i'm younger than i am, but there are advantages- everything is cheaper (i still get childrens bus tickets but thats because i ask for them and i dont feel like i'm an adult till i can vote)

OK last year I was snowboarding and I was getting something out of my friend's dad's truck. Then these guys walk by and they're like "hey, is this your truck?" I'm like, "how old do you think I am" and they said "about 18". And I was 13 when this happened. I'm pretty sure I don't look 18!

haha, i would probably be ID'd when buying alcohol- i dont look really young but i'm only 16 and theyre more careful now, which is why its good to have a legal sister with you who can use her passport, or a mum who doesnt mind you drinking a little

My sister told all her friends that I am 11. Or 10,I seriously can't remeber. But, blkvr!!, I am actually 13, going to be 14 in the summer. Don't beleive my sister. Ever. I learned that over the years. Don't even beleive her about the weather forcast.

OMG! That is true!! :D :D she told me that you were ten and that you failed a bunch of grades so that was why you were in grade eight. ::) She made no sense and I didn't believe her.  ;D

europe seems to be very relaxed about alchol, when i was in majorca last summer it wouldnt have been a problem for me to go to the bar and order my own alcoholic drink
