A-tip-ical Aging

| Mountain View, CA, USA | Awesome Customers, Food & Drink, Top

(I’m a woman and manager at a sausage/beer stand. I card everyone that orders beer, regardless of how old they look. Some customers get insulted, while others don’t mind. Note: I look at least 10 years younger than my actual age.)

Me: “Hi, how can I help you?”

Customer: “I’d like two beers, polish, and a coke.”

Me: “May I see some ID, please?”

Customer: “I’m waaay older than you. How old do I look?”

(He looks in his mid-30s, so I guess much earlier in age.)

Me: “Uh, 24?”

Customer: “Haha! NO!”

(He shows me his ID, and his birth date makes him over 35.)

Me: “Wow, you don’t look it.”

Customer: “How old are you?”

Me: “I’m 47.”

Customer: *skeptically* “Sure… you can’t be any older than 30. Okay, show me YOUR ID.”

Me: “Okay…”

(I pull out my ID. Much to his surprise, he sees I’m older than he is.)

Customer: “HOLY S***! WOW! You look great! Good genes, huh?”

Me: *smiling* “Yeah, something like that…”

(He pays for his order, but also puts an additional $10 bill on the counter.)

Customer: “This tip is for putting up with me!”

(Made my night!)
