We've been having problems with underage gambling and so I've been carding everybody who looks remotely young, and besides we're supposed to card anybody who looks under thirty.
Anyway, I carded this guy, he looked like he was eighteen. Turns out he was the same age as me but just three months older.
SG: Sucky guy
SGD: sucky guys (nice) dad
Me: Can I see your ID too please?
SG: I've been getting carded like crazy!
Me: Yeah, looks like you're the same age as me.
SG: I bet you don't get carded as much.
Why do I look old? (I was joking at this point but it still stung)
SG: Nah, just a bit haggard.
SGD: Son, that's a bit rude...
SG: Shut it, old timer.
What a jerk. I don't know what haggard means exactly but so far as much as I've looked it up online its not a great term.
SGD: He's just kidding...
At that point I was wondering if maybe the guy was a spoiled brat. I tried to laugh it off like I didn't care. But hell, its never good to be called old and haggard.
SG: Yeah, Im kidding (at this point I wasn't sure)
Me: Ah, you're just saying that cuz I'm giving you money (said with a grin and in a joking manner)
SG: well, its MY money I can take it to another window.
At this point I can't tell if he's kidding but I tried to keep the mood light.
Me: How would you like this? All hundreds?
I tried to change the subject.
Towards the end he asked me something about who is better looking him or his dad. Can we all guess who I said? That's right, his dad cuz his dad wasn't such a jerk.
I know its not extremely sucky but he made me feel kinda bad there for awhile.
