People Share How They Prove Their Age When They Lose Their IDs

[rebelmouse-image 18356037 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

We'll be completely honest, we forget or lose our ID's around here like it's a fashion trend. We've sat on it and snapped it into pieces, two have been lost to the briny depths of the seas off of Miami (which is pretty much in the Bermuda Triangle, so that's a special kind of lost) and one was swiped by someone's pet skunk. We couldn't make this up if we tried. If not having your ID were an Olympic sport, you'd be staring at our mug on a box of Wheaties every four years.

So one one Reddit user asked:

You're at a bar, but forgot your ID. How do you prove you were born in 1997 or earlier?

We clicked that link helluh fast. Ideally, we'd never want anyone to risk their jobs because of something we did. We know people can get fired for serving someone without ID, so we're not suggesting that. But, on the off chance someone was willing to bend the rules a bit, here are 20 of our favorite responses.

The Yearbook

Went to a bar and few years back and a chick got in with her high school yearbook.

This happened to my wife about 5 years ago at a Halloween party at a bar. I wasn't very worried I just old her she was a pretty girl so she would get in to problem. We talked to the bouncer. I showed him her Facebook profile with her birthday on there and pictures from our vacation for verification. It worked and a great time was had by all.

How Rita Repulsa

Show the bouncer my Mighty Morphin Power Rangers tightie whities, obviously.

The Flash

[rebelmouse-image 18356041 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Flash the bouncer. Either they will love it and let me in, or they will go:

"Yep, you're old."

And let me in. Win-win.

They'll Never Be This Cool Again

[rebelmouse-image 18356042 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

In one spectacular instance the new girl at my favorite bar asked for my ID, which I didn't have.

I calmly reached up to the beam next to the bar, and pulled down a picture of me doing a shot with the owner of the bar that had been taken the previous halloween.

DUI

I once managed to prove my age by showing the bouncer my DUI paper and printed crime report with my mugshot.

Cartoons

[rebelmouse-image 18356044 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I forgot my ID and the bouncer asked me what my favorite show was when I was a kid. I said Rocko's Modern Life and he let me in.

Glory Days

[rebelmouse-image 18356048 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Tell him stories about how athletic and popular I was in high school, how I had tons of friends, and was the life of the party. Only a sad 40 year old would gone on about his high school career as if it were the pinnacle of his life.

An Honest Evaluation

[rebelmouse-image 18356049 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"Look, he lost his wallet last night, but he's here with six 28-year old guys and he's clearly not anybody's little brother because he's Indian and the rest of us are white."

Surprisingly effective considering we just saw the door guy turn away a hot girl with a fake ID.

We Forgot Those Existed

I once got past a doorman by showing that I carry a checkbook.

I pointed at the ceiling where an Elton John song from Yellow Brick Road was playing, and said, "I was 15 years old when this album came out in 1973". My co-worker (younger than me, but still old af) laughed his a** off. It worked.

Tap The Button But Don't Hold It Down...

Make Like A Tree And...

People Describe The Scariest Movies They've Ever Seen

You might say moviegoers who love horror films are sadists.

They derive pleasure from being spooked and terrified, and they somehow love crouching in their seats out of sheer fright watching supernatural entities scaring the daylights out of homeowners or serial killers stalking their prey.

It's all an adrenaline rush.

However, even gore and slasher fans have their limits.

In the recent Pride and Prejudice update Fire Island, Dex leads the main character Noah to believe that the stand-offish lawyer Will judges him for having an OnlyFans page.

A site that has become commonly used for amateur and professional porn performers and sex workers to directly profit from erotic and sexual content they upload themselves.

As is the case with their literary counterparts, Darcy and Wickham, Will's apathy towards Dex runs much deeper than his OnlyFans page.

But Will wouldn't be the first person to judge someone for utilizing the site as a means of income.

Several people might also stop their romantic pursuits of those who decide to upload x-rated content as a side (or primary) hustle.

Others, however, might not have a problem with it, and might even join them in their endeavors.

I know that many of you love the chili from a certain fast-food restaurant that rhymes with "Bendy's," but I'm here to tell you that that stuff is not fresh. Not one bit.

Okay, that statement might not hold true from franchise to franchise, but it's something worth thinking about.

Sorry to burst your bubble: This is a dark secret I've carried inside me for more than a decade.

Keep in mind: It was tasty. Quite. But it did sit out for a while. Didn't stop the customers from eating it though, and they were happy and I was paid for my work and that was that.

But there are other job secrets out there that you might not be aware of.

People shared the deets with us after Redditor You_are_a_dolt asked the online community,

"What’s a trade secret you know from working the industry?"

There are many cases where a company or product promises good quality or intentions.

But that isn't always the case as some companies fail to deliver and they make off with your hard-earned cash.

In an instantly gratifying world, consumers are quick to go after the things they want with the click of a button as long as they have the funds.

But they should keep a close eye on where their money is going toward.
