The Mother (And Father) Of All Fake IDs

, , , , | Working | December 21, 2018

(It’s my 21st birthday. I’m out to dinner with my family. I am on the fence about ordering a drink, as I’ve never had any sort of alcohol. My parents offer to pay for it, since I’m not driving. I decide to get a small mixed drink.)

Waiter #1: “Can I see your ID?”

Me: “Sure.”

(He looks it over, hands it back with no comment, and walks away. A few minutes later, he comes back with my drink and a second waiter.)

Waiter #2: “Um… [Mixed drink]?”

Me: “Oh, that’s mine.”

Waiter #2: “Can I see your ID?”

Me: “The other guy already checked it, but sure… I guess so.”

(I pull my ID back out and hand it over. Both waiters stare at it, turn it in multiple directions, and hold it up to the light.)

Waiter #2: “Dude, that’s not fake. It has all the watermarks, and the picture looks just like her. And this is obviously her family. Here you go, miss.” *places my drink in front of me and walks away*

Me: “Seriously? You think I’d try to pass a fake ID in front of my parents?

Waiter #1: “Um… the rest of your sodas will be right up.” *hands my ID back to me and quickly walks away*
