my son was 15 and really wanted to start working, he applied at a fast food restaurant saying he was 16. Fast forward a year later, it was his birthday (finally 16) and his boss walked up to him and says happy birthday.... you're not 17 are you? But my son was such a great employee that his boss just laughed it off and was shocked he didn't catch it earlier.
