I just read this post on a blog i follow [http://baradventures.tumblr.com/],
I am genuinely confused about how i would handle this situation. I’ve only been legal for about a month now, so for a while now i have been going out in Nairobi, to events and such underage. I have had my fair share of rejections and some have stung way more than others.
A week to my birthday, i got tickets to a Heineken event.
I was so excited because i thought, ‘Oh my gosh,this is my opportunity to show my face and amazing personality to some people who could actually have some effect on my career!’. I had absolutely no interest in drinking.
Anyway, i reach there, all decked out, and, they refused to let me in! I was hurt and furious because they just brushed me off like some random fan girl.
I asked, ‘One week?! One Week! How much more could i possibly mature in one week?!’
What exactly is the drinking age based on?
Is it a question of maturity? Or is it just about a number?
What do you think?
