They wanted to send me to the high school students cafeteria the other day at college, so I feel your pain. I also get asked if I am from the college or the high school at the other level of the building when I have to ask something at the student desk. It's kinda funny, but also not so much lol.

sometimes, I usually pay kids price at the cinema(?), I think the braces, the child-like attitude, my clothes helps with that.
I'm 18.

Haha I love the responses here!!! I'm 5'0" and I'm 15... So my age HAS to be 12... I'm not even allowed in to 15s at cinemas unless I'm accompanied by my parents! And the weirdest part is that everyone thinks my twin is around 14/15 so it's just me that gets the awkward guesses

I am 26 and I have heard this now that I am getting older. When people ask me about my age, I always ask people to guess and most of the times I hear 22-23. When I was in high school (being 15) and I was fat, people used to think that I was 18. Weird.

Me! I'm currently 24, but people tend to generalize me as a high schooler! Although it's way off, I'd rather be called young than old!

I'm 29. Was waiting for the bus awhile back at a stop near a high school and a kid asked me if I was a sophomore. He looked 16/17. I said no, kept to myself, went to get on the bus and he payed my way without telling me, lol. On the way off I payed him back. To be honest I am only hit on by people who are years younger than me. It's a trip. My voice is also very feminine and child-like which doesn't help.

I'm 16 but everyone says I look like a college kid... Kinda annoying though because I get more responsibilities than I want.

I'm 25 in like a month, 5'1" and constantly get asked for ID when buying cigarettes or alcohol. The legal age for purchasing those here is 18. So...

I've been told I look a lot younger than I really am, most recently at the gym - receptionist asked how old I was and I told her and she balked, assuring me that 'no offense but...'.

It seems to run in my family. People often freak out when my uncle tells them he's 51. They assume he's in his early-mid 30s despite the fact that he is a very heavy smoker.
