2. Often to the point where they basically imply you are wrong. Or lying.

3. You are frequently asked if you skipped a year or two of education.

4. But you’re then also informed that you seem mature for your age.

Soooo I look too young but also seem too mature. Good. Great.

5. Constantly being asked for your ID everywhere you go.

Because apparently everyone thinks you’re still a child.

6. Or having people assume that your ID is fake. Realistic, but fake. 

Yeah, you’re right. This isn’t me. This is me in the future.

8. Forever being subjected to jokes about how young you look.

Made worse if you’re shorter than average, too.
