College town bars see underage kids trying to sneak in like nowhere else. The youth there are right out of high school and want to party, sometimes not fully comprehending that to legally make the most of a drinking night you need to be 21 or older. In an attempt to get around that, some turn to fake IDs or using someone else’s ID. That works until it doesn’t, and the fails can result in hilarious stories. Case in point: The bartender who received her own missing license when someone tried to buy a drink.
“Pretty sure I just received the best fake ID of my bartending career,” Kleo McHugh, who attended the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, tweeted on May 8. “A girl handed me my missing license from 2 years ago.”
It was clearly something that people could relate to. At the time of writing the tweet has more than 73,000 retweets and more than 528,000 likes. The real sign that it’s a universal statement, though, is all the bartenders and bar goers who shared their stories of fake ID fails and successes.
Using Parents’ and Siblings’ IDs
Apparently this is something that people do.
