Do I really look 17??

I just got asked for ID in Tesco when buying a nice bottle of red wine!! It wasn’t even like I was buying cheap cider or Lambrini!!

I know that the new slogan is something like – ‘If you look under 21, we will ask if you are over 18’ – but really, that is ridiculous – you have to be 18 to buy wine so surely this implies she must have thought I was younger than 18! I am 24! And anyway, I don’t look under 21 either – do I?!

Normally I would be embarrassed in these situations but I just smiled nicely and replied “that’s a nice compliment for a Friday afternoon”. I guess that’s what you are meant to say when you get a bit older!
