Welcome Jolt...
Your name brings up the memory of a college roommate who didn't study most of the academic quarter, and decided it would be a good idea to do No-Doz and Jolt to stay up and study...You can guess the rest.

I had a huge test in college and the night before I decided to drink tons of jolt and take Vivarin to stay up and do some last minute cramming.  Though Vivarin compares itself to caffeine and cups of coffee (or at least it did at the time), there was no actual caffeine in Vivarin; it used a drug called Stimucin.  As it turned out, large amounts of caffeine and Stimucin mixed very poorly in my body and I became very ill (afterwards I noticed a small warning on the Vivarin bottle against taking it with too much caffeine at the same time) and I missed the big test.  Fortunately, the prof let me take the test at the next class at no loss of points (a different test from the rest of the class and all essay; but being an English/Theatre major essays didn't bother me).  I was very fortunate, many profs wouldn't have been so forgiving.  I haven't taken another stay-awake drug now for over 15 years.

Fine, fine, OK tell me I'm past the "use by " date.
I was buying a few items in the shop last week and the counter girl asked me if I was getting them for my grandchildren.
I wanted to reach across the counter and wring her skinny-assed neck.

Actually I'm 40. I was just pulling your chain. But I did get carded for beer last year. That made me happy.

I'm 45.  And occasionally a very dutiful employee asks for my ID.
I give him or her a really big smile and say "Thank you!"
At my age I just love being carded.

I'm fourty-one, and what's sad is that I haven't been carded since I was fourteen.  Sad, because I didn't drink til I was in gradschool (when I turned 21).

I'm 50, started going bald at the age of 15 (was a sophomore in high school at the time), and have never been carded in my entire life.

You shouldn't say things like this in the presence of dirty old men like myself, it's too easy to take as an indication that you'd like to be used.

Eli is a nickname I got on my college mock trial team for being good and laughing when I stumped people, it stands for Evil Little Imp since I have an impish laugh. The second part is part of my name.
It is crazy when the hardcore guy at the game shop and strict religious guy at school are at the same level of prejudice of people they don't know.
