    ....is quite emabarrassing I didn't even know there was an age limit on screwdrivers, but apparently I don't look old enough to go round stabbing people with them... I mean putting shelves up and things!

    There ought to be an age 50 lower limit for going to garden centres. And Budleigh Salterton.

    Must do!

    I never used to get asked for ID but I get asked constantly now, even though I am mid twenties and think I look my age! - police have had a proper crack down in nottingham in the last year or so, all the bars have signs up saying if you look under 25 you will get asked !

    didn't think they'd be so harsh in B&Q though

    I got asked for ID to buy booze in Morrisons the other week. The girl on the checkout looked just about 18, I'm 32. Fortunately I'd been to open a new bank account earlier and had my passport in my pocket. She looked at the date of birth saying "1974?" That far back was just ancient history to the poor girl - you could almost hear the cogs grinding round in her head! I said "Yes love, I'm 32"

    It was funny more than embarassing, especially since I was obviously buying a load of other groceries and not just booze.

    Ask Bisto about being asked for ID - priceless when we were out for his 28th birthday!
    You'll never Walk Alone!

    Most people think I am quite young though. Typically people think I'm about 22 - 24, though one lass thought I was only 20!!!

    Having said that the MILF at work (in the nightclub) thought I was her age (32) but then she only looks about 27. I think her being 30+ is more exciting though!!!
