I recently turned 21 and I am going to be enjoying spring break with my friends soon an we plan to go to the beach down state. Some people give me a hard time when I go to the bar or to liquor stores to buy alcohol and they tell me I look 16. I recently bought alcohol last week and I was walking to put the beer in...

why are you so against showing your id? if you look underage, you for the life of me cannot really blame the cops for thinking you really are underage... your id shall prove that you are as old as you say you are and they'll leave you alone...

You have an obligation to prove your age as you are holding an age controlled substance

Just show your ID. If you give them a hard time you're just looking to be a jerk and cause problems.

Say "certainly , officer", hand her/him the ID and innocently ask "are you hitting on me?" That will change who is in control of the conversation.

Welcome to the club. The last time I was carded at a bar, I was in my 30s. It probably won't make you feel better now but you will begin to appreciate looking younger than your age when you get to be my age.

Just show your id kid. Those cops also have a right to contain you for 24 hours without reason.

If you are 21, you are 21 and you have nothing to worry about. sure its annoying to constantly be asked for your ID but you aren't doing anything illegal since you are of age.

That's what an ID is for. You hand them your ID and say, "Looks can be deceiving." Never refuse to show your ID. That WILL just cause trouble because the police or whoever will assume you are underage. Just be chill about it and show them your ID

Sure, go ahead. Don't show your ID. But then you can't argue when they take your alcohol away and arrest you (which, of course, you could avoid by just showing your ID).

I still get carded at the liquor store, that's just life (even though drinking age here is 19).

A cop "saw" you, he didn't "seen" you. If you spoke like an educated person, you might impress people as being your age.

No, if you are stopped by the police, behave politely and show your ID when asked. If you know that you look young, it is unreasonable of YOU to object when the police ask you to prove your age.

Refusing to cooperate, being belligerent and impolite, can result in serious problems for you. If you are an adult, you should ACT like an adult.
