Bartenders Are Sharing Their Best Stories About Fake IDs After This 22-Year-Old's Epic Story

Posted on May 14, 2018, at 3:28 p.m. ET

Kleo McHugh is a 22-year-old student at the University of Alabama who is originally from New York. Since bartenders in New York only have to be 18, she has been working in bars on and off for about four years, she told BuzzFeed News.

Recently, Kleo had an experience in her bar that is pretty crazy: She got handed her own lost ID as a fake ID.

Kleo explained she was working at her bar when a group of girls came in. They were doomed from the start because when the first girl handed her an ID, she recognized it was her friend Jess.

"I laughed and said, 'Nice fake, I know Jess,' and handed it back," she said.

Finally, a girl handed Kleo a New York license that was fake, vertical denoting that the person was underage, and cracked in half. But when she looked at the photo, she realized it was her own license she had lost a few years ago.

"So I start laughing kind of in shock and I’m like, 'Nice fake, not the best pic of me is it?'" she said. "All of her friends were so confused too. I guess it’s just not something you expect to ever happen."

Kleo said since the bar she works at serves food, she let the girl stay, but just didn't serve her alcohol.


"I was underage once too — remember where you came from, right?" she said.

Kleo added the girl told her the ID has a storied history since it was first lost a few years ago.

"She said that a girl found it and used it till she was 21, then she sold it to her (the girl I met with it)," Kleo said.

Kleo decided to share the story on Twitter, where other bartenders immediately jumped in with their fave stories of dealing with the youths.


Apparently, they run into people they "know" a lot!


Oh nooo.


Come on, Travis!


TBH I'd still be impressed.


YAAASS Lauren.


Stay clever, kids!
