What a delightful day!

Joseph, 26, was ecstatic when asked by the bartender earlier this evening; “May I see your ID?”

Joseph’s mouth gaped in shock.

“Wow, really??” he exclaimed, stunned. “Of COURSE! I’d LOVE to show you my ID! Thank you!! I’m so flattered!!”

He had to take everything out of his wallet to find it, because it’s been so long since he’s even needed it. It probably felt good to dust that old sucker off!

“I can’t believe it. It’s ’cause I shaved today, isn’t it!?” he said, handing it over, “I can’t even remember the last time someone asked to see my ID,” he added to the stranger waiting patiently behind him.

“I remember when I used to have a fake,” Joseph reminisced to no one in particular. “Man,” he chuckled to himself, “those were the days.”

When the bartender handed the ID back, Joseph asked, “Do I really look under 21?”

No response.

“Wow, this really made my day,” he continued, “Makes me feel young again.”

Joseph, who was born in 1995, tucked his ID back in his wallet and said, “Shout out to my 90’s kids, amirite!? Hey, you guys remember Backstreet Boys? 90’s babies only!!”

After being served, Joseph turned around one last time for some parting words.

“Thank you,” he said to the bartender, “I always make fun of her for getting ID’d,” he pointed to the Asian female beside him, “never thought it would happen to me. See ya later, quarter life crisis!”
