...or in most any establishment?? I see a lof of age related questions here, and they're all fun. Someone has just reached the BIG FIVE-O or someone else at 40 is the new 20. I feel this is wonderful and am so glad I'm living at a time when this is happening. Used to be, although older people received respect, they were still....well....OLD! at least for the most part... Now....50 is the new 30, 60 the new 40 ( or at least 45 ).......and I think it is great! I am 50+ ( yes, older than our lovely ShopMom! ) I started noticing about the time I turned 50 that I was beginning to show my age. Instead of going into a panic.... I also noticed concurrently that certain doors were beginning to open. I could walk into a store and get help immediately just by smiling ( and thus, showing my wrinkles ) People seemed to take me seriously for the first time ( I have always looked young ) and I could ask a stupid question:shame: and still get a polite answer! And the best part......people think 'cause you're older you have MONEY ! Especially if you carry the Hermes, wear the bling, drive the Bentley ( I don't have a Bentley but I'm eyeing one...well, you get the picture).....and smile a lot ( like you're so excited that you have all this crazy fun stuff.....all these wonderful props that you've worked for and earned! ) So, with all this get-up...H handbag, bling, the right car, parked in front of the right house.... all these props...combined with being the best age ever.....I feel that being a certain age can help at Hermes or anywhere else. Like being in a play on the stage of life.....it can be fun..... What do you all think? How do you feel about it?
