This strip would work better if my character was actually Asian like me. I think it’s far less likely for someone with that much facial hair to be mistaken to be 18 or under than someone like me. Still though, either this person was a bad judge of age or my Asian genes take more years off my age than I realized. It was weird because from the request for ID I just instantly was reaching for my wallet, and my brain didn’t process the absurdity of the situation until the guy was already holding it.

At a certain point I’ll reach an age where 18 and 21 will both seem equally distant from my current age but pretty much as soon as I started buying games with any sort of frequency I was long past 18.

Oh and incidentally, I’m 28.
