    Halloween weeked and Saw 2 looms. I must see it. However being 17 really does suck. Seeing as its half term, I and my mates have decided not to shave all half term, acquiring various different grades of beard, ranging from pathetic bum fluff, to mine. Guess its my job to book the tickets then.

    I had a quick shave around it, leaving a goatee (more pronounced on one side than the other) and some truly dismal burners. I think it looks quite good, but a quick survey round the pub suggests different.

    So I'm back to square one, any ideas how to get in to an 18 these days? They always seem to ID now, unless you look 21.

    That means no stories about how you got into 18's when you were 3 etc etc please! Its different today, face it your old! :D

    You can get into the pub, but not the cinema? :confused:

    Tip: don't go to the cinema as a group - if each goes on his own, with his own ticket, you'll get less hassle from the staff.

    But it says your a Senior Member? :D

    I remember my Dad trying to take me to see Conan the Destroyer, for some reason they wouldn't let us in.

    I was 9 & had never even heard of the movie.......

    Order the ticket online with someone elses credit card. Borrow it for the evening to collect the tickets and nobody will think to check your age. :)

    The Guildford Odeon is pants anyway though. :thumbsdown:

    Yes, but the spotty youths that 'rip your ticket'* are only about 12 themselves so they don't care.

    *I think I'll patent that as a new catchphrase; "Dude, that really rips my ticket"!

    The ticket checkers will no doubt expect the cashiers to have made sure you were old enough. Similarly the cashiers will expect the ticket checkers to do the same thing. Each will blame the other and you get to see the film. :)

    Funny, you spend a couple of years 'wanting' a beard then once you have one, you spend the rest of your life moaning about the cost of razor blades and foam....:)

    Aren't there self-service machines?
    Though if they require debit/credit cards (not electron) which you may not have then may not be an option for you.

    Have always used self-service machines if they're at the cinema, since there's always the "student" ticket option at about £4 rather than £6 full price, and they never ask for student ID or NUS cards (and I've never seen any smallprint or notices about it providing proof of studentness) when they check your ticket.

    Gillette shaving foam/gel isn't all that good mate. Evilgirlfriend2 used to work for Gillette so whilst I still use the stuff as she got me loads of free cans the shaving gel of choice is made by King of Shaves. Fairly expensive but very, very good. :)

    Under control. The better half doesn't like it when it gets too 'wayward'. :D Draw from that what conclusions you like.........;)
