    This young man came to my door and after interrogating him through the door to find out who he was he said he was my neighbor. So I opened the door and he said "Hi, are your parents home." LOL!!! I was like, huh, and he was like oh are you the owner. He was like omigosh, I thought you were my age. I said I may be, I told him I was 30 and he was totally shocked. He was like, you go girl.

    Anyway, he was a college kid getting sponsors for a trip via selling magazine subcriptions. Of course I sponsored him.

    I thought it was funny though. "Are your parents home". I should have said, umm, I'm not sure I'd have to call them to find out.

    Jada,
    I get that sort of thing all the time - and I'm 36 . I find it gets annoying because they insist on knowing exactly how old you are in each instance .
    I like to remember myself still in my 20's, and I hate having to re-hash the truth by clearing up my true age and justifying how I can possibly have an 11 year old son .

    I've had comments like "What ? Those are your kids ? Did you start having kids when you were 12" ?


    I guess some day it won't be so annoying when I'm an old hag with tons of wrinkles and some young good looking man BS's and tell me how young I look
    "82 ? Wow! You don't look a day over 70 !
    Did I see you on the Miss America pageant ?"

    That's the financial advisor I'll invest all my lifetime savings with [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    My parents recently came to visit and wanted to go to the local casino. I got asked from my ID. I'm 38 and was thrilled. Over here, checking age limits for anything is a pretty rare event as it is. You can be 14 and go into almost any bar and get served. A casino of all places. I've probably only been asked for ID 3 or 4 times in my life! And all most all of those times have been after the age of 30. Maybe I'm looking younger as I grow older?? :eek: I should be so lucky.

    Just make ot a point to be 29 forever.

    When they say you don't look 29, just say you have an aging disease. Or that you are related to Dorian Gray.

    I had a "college" girl knock on my door and give me pretty much the same BS.

    I told her I sell magazines myself and do it via the web instead of bothering people door to door.

    I think most of those sales people are scammers and they are definitely a pain in the ass. Don't fall for the charm and the neighbor routine unless you know it for a fact. They are just buttering you up. Please don't reward them for their obnoxious behavior, it just keeps them going like the energizer bunny.
