Just say it...

I’m older in age than most of the workers in my office. That’s ok. I like being my age and there is no way in hell I would want to go back to my twenties or thirties. I knew stuff all back then. The thing that amuses me in the office is they’re all so terribly conservative. No one speaks their mind and everyone is real careful when they say anything. Not me. I say what I think and get what I want and need but then I’ve always been like that. It frightens them that I am very direct and to the point. It worries me that people 10 or 15 years younger are so scared of life and consequences. Old age? It’s a mental thing – not a physical thing. These people are crotchety at 30. Think old? Be old.

Be yourself and age not.

i have the same problem with people sometimes with age, sometimes with other things, and the worst is when they sort of hint at things and i think man up, you can be polite and direct. if i can and i'm actually quite shy face to face anyone can.
