ageism is insulting and is also poor business practise . we are all individuals and have our good and bad points . Lumping us all as the elderly or being seen as a group of similar people just because of our age is ridiculous. It is often combined with sexism too,I am a widow and live alone, but when my husband was alive we went to look at a new vehicle. I asked the salesman a question and he looked directly at my husband and spoke to him. He did the same thing on a second question and so I said to my husband come on we will go elsewhere. The man said "I didnt think you would be interested in the engine" to me and when I told him that I was driving 3 days a week long distances doing hospital car work, was the main driver of the car and would therefore be making more of the decision on the car , he suddenly wanted to start talking to me. I told him that we would not be buying from him now or at any time in the future and that I would pass on to my friends of similar age exactly how he had behaved. I have not been back there since. It is perfectly acceptable to ask if someone needs help. I have a bad back and there are times when I would be happy to accept some help but to be asked politely and not talked down to. I have travelled all over the world under my own steam and I will never accept being spoken to as an idiot. The best role model to watch is Stephanie Cole in waiting for god. I think she copied some of my ideas! I wont be called dear by some one in a shop or whatever and intend to do things my way, so long as i dont hurt anyone else. whether you like or dislike me is of no consequence. I just expect the same civility as anyone else of whatever age.
