Gas Station Worker Floors TikTok By Revealing The Real Reason He Checks IDs—And Oof

Gas Station Worker Floors TikTok By Revealing The Real Reason He Checks IDs—And Oof
@alberteinstein6021/TikTok

There's this trope we see in movies and TV all the time where a person, usually a woman, gets carded to buy alcohol and the audience is supposed to understand this as happening because she looks too young to buy alcohol legally.

Except the age to purchase alcohol legally is 21, which is relatively young. Nobody really looks under 21 unless you look like a literal child.

So what's the real reason?

Enter TikTok user and gas station employee "Mr. Obvious."

According to him, the real reason you get IDed (aside from the fact that they're supposed to ID everyone) might not be because you look so youthful and spritely. It might be because you look so...NOT youthful and spritely.

"We check ID because young people be looking old.”

Honestly, people being kind of hurting is what we expected to find I'm the comments of the clip after we watched it.

What we weren't expecting was the sheer number of people who agreed!

The comments were full of folks who had also noticed how not-youthful the tourh have been looking lately.

Bartenders, other gas station employees, people just going about their busines ... lots of folks noticed it.

Young people DO be lookin old.

Now that youve heard what these people have really been thinking, will you be a little offended the next time you get carded?

Or are you more focused on the fact that many places require employees to check ID even if you're 100 years old and arrived on a senior citizens trolley?

Or do you honestly not cate as long as they hand over the liquor?

Sound off!
