Do people think you're really how old you are?

Since turning 21, I notice a lot of people do not really believe I'm 21. When I suggest going out for drinks, or having a drink with dinner, people says always say "No, you're not 21". People get shocked to find out I am not a teenager. O O My phone rang about an hour ago. It was just a telemarketer. He asked may I speak to an adult. So, I edcuriously, "How old do you think I am?" He told me 15. :( Sometimes, it makes me feel immature or like I'm not being taken seriously. Do people think you're younger, older, or the same age as you are? How does it make you feel?

You think thats bad my daughter has two kids and is thirty and she has to have ID to be able to buy alcholic drink at the supermarket the only reason she could get served today was because Iwas with her .My son who is fifteen needed glasses on saturday I was to ill to go so my daughter took him for me and they rung me and told me to make sure an adult was with him next time ,they would not serve him again,I told them she was thirty,They were really sorry they honestly thought my fifteen years old son was a bout ten and my daughter was not eighteen.We have a lot of fun when I am with my son who is thirty three shopping we met a few of his friends once he spoke to them and that evening he went out for a drink with them and they asked him where is girlfriend was and he said his partner was at home with the kids,they said no the girl you was with today ,they got quite a shock when they realised I was his natural mum mind you he only looks about twenty years old, on holiday or if we all have a family day out,we get many a strange look when the kids call me mumxxx
