I have the worst of both. I'm 30, run my own business, and look like I'm 19....... All the time I get asked questions about being out of school so early or having this as a temp/part time job, or I get talked down to because they don't think I am who I am or that I am not old enough for them to talk to with respect. It's a curse and blessing... and damn is it annoying.

That's why I generally keep my facial hair. There's a very tiny bit of 'salt' showing up...so it's enough to usually keep the questions down.
When I'm fully clean shaven with a nice haircut though...I still get carded when I drink...

Off shoot question to this one... Who's self image is still stuck in the years just after highschool? Many friends I talk to, we all seem to agree, that our self image gets stuck at a certain point. While we are adults, we do not fully see ourselves as that "adult". It's hard to put into words, but as a kid, you see adults in a certain way. Then when you reach that age, it just seems like, while you are there, you don't look or feel the way you figured you would. It's like your self image is frozen.
I still seem to be in the early 20's of how I view myself.

So it's not just me?
I've wondered for years if there wasn't something slightly wrong with me because I often don't feel like an adult at all. I just feel like me...and don't feel like I've really changed from who I was in high school...and that was over 15 years ago in my case.
