I was at a party and I was trying to call Jeff. In dreams, I can never dial numbers on my phone or type on the computer. I keep messing up over and over and I can't ever get it right. This was happening again, but this time I remembered that this might be a dream, or at least that this problem was not going to go away. So I handed the phone to someone else at the party in my dream, and asked them to contact Jeff. They did it for me, and I was able to talk to him in the dream and get him to come get me. I remember feeling aware that I had cheated some rule of this world that I was in, because it had almost never worked out in the past that I've been able to type the letters or numbers I need for communication.

    Why the Fake ID?

    Jeff and I were out drinking at a bar. We drank a lot, especially me. For some reason we didn't have to show our IDs until it was time to pay for all the drinks. Jeff pulled out his ID, and it wasn't his, but his friend Justin's. He was trying to pass himself off as this friend and use his ID. Jeff is 28, and doesn't even remotely look like Justin. I thought, what the hell?

    The guy behind the counter was almost cartoonishly large, loud and Italian, and started threatening to kick us out because he could tell the ID was fake. I started calling Jeff "Justin" and insisted it was just a bad photo to stick up for him, even though I was still very confused. It didn't work though, so I offered up my own ID and argued with the guy that we were obviously both of age, although we both actually look pretty young.

    I don't remember anything about the dream after arguing with the guy for a really long time.   

    Additional Comments:

    The bartender did remind me a lot of the Italian guy in The Lady and the Tramp, which I did watch recently.

    Very relegated in the workplace

    I lost my job for some reason and was relegated to being some sort of medical assistant in the mental health field. I got so upset that I dug my nails into my wrists, cutting them so badly I had to get stitches. I remember apologizing to whoever I showed them to (my dad maybe?) as they bled uncontrollably. 

    I was forceably admitted for a couple of weeks to a mental health facility belonging to my own company, and wasn't allowed to work in mental health anymore.
