I got asked if I was a student today.


I was shopping in Sainsbury's and a guy asked me if I had a BT landline (I don't, cable all the way, baby). When I said I hadn't he told me Sainsbury's were offering a special internet package for students. I gave him a blank look, though in my mind it was more


Upon informing him that I wasn't a student he thanked me for my time, then adding 'it's just that you look like one.'

Looking young is one thing, but being mistaken for a student?

Reap the compliments whilst you still look young! :-)

That's my point - being regarded as a bristol uni student isn't a compliment. It's more of a 'look'. I shall burn all my clothes and buy new ones asap.

As if that's going to work. Try wearing old clothes. The students in the U.K. are better dressed than most professionals.

I do wear old clothes - it's just the student's idea of grunge and retro is what I wear normally.

They'll find a new look in a month or so. I'll just stay indoors until then.
