Dad Mocks Son Online After Finding His Fake ID on Liquor Store’s ‘Wall of Shame’

The weirdest thing about being a parent is when suddenly you don’t know every little thing your kid is doing. That’s why Maryland dad Wade Grundmeyer did a double-take at the “Wall of Shame” at his local  liquor store when he looked up and saw his son’s fake ID pinned to the wall.

“That Proud Dad Moment when you go tot he liquor store and find your son’s confiscated fake ID displayed on the Wall of Shame,” he wrote on a photo of himself grinning and pointing to the fake ID.

Grundmeyer’s son must not have had a very good fake ID, because it wound up on the wall with all the other fakes the liquor store had confiscated.

A lot of parents would be pissed about their kid using a fake ID, but Grundmeyer seems pretty chill about it. Maybe it’s because he knows his kid didn’t actually get away with it. Or maybe it’s because his kid is 20, so being a year shy of the legal drinking age doesn’t seem like that big of a deal. (Legal drinking ages vary a lot by country. It’s 19 in Canada, 20 in Japan, and in the Germany it’s legal to drink beer and wine at 16 and spirits at 18.)

Just a week before, Grundmeyer had posted a happy 20th birthday message for his kid.

Grundmeyer’s kid is never going to successfully enter a liquor store again, because his dad’s post has gone viral, and now everybody knows his underage face. Grundmeyer’s post has been retweeted more than 29,000 times and liked more than 100,000 times. Nobody is going to think that baby face belongs to a 22-year-old ever again.

I’m astonished that anybody is trying to pass a fake ID at that liquor store, though. They are clearly very good at spotting fake IDs! Look how many are on that wall. I’d be nervous to hand over my ID at that store, and I’m well over 30 at this point. Grundmeyer’s kid must be very brave and very optimistic to see that Wall of Shame and think, “I’m the guy they’re not going to catch!”
