So I'm 23. I'm young. Yeah. I'm aware. I'm getting really sick of co-workers continually mentioning how young I am. I literally had a co-worker assume I didn't know what Saturday Night Live was today. Is that a joke?? Everyone and their mother still watches that show!
All of my co-workers are at least in their 30's. They always make jokes about things are that clearly over my head (they aren't) because I'm so young and naive and really stupid. I work with the elderly, and this is the only group of people who can make jokes about me being young and I won't be bothered by it.
I am fully aware that I have lots to learn in my life, and I'm not afraid to admit that. I'm not afraid to admit I don't know everything. Why does age have anything to do with this? I know 13 year olds that have more life experience than I do, and I know middle aged people with no freakin' brains. I am just really tired of people assuming things about me because I'm young. I suppose it can be pretty handy to be underestimated. Also, I have gotten a few comments about getting married young. When I get married I'll be 24.
I realize complaining about it maybe makes me seem childish, which kind of goes hand-in-hand with what I'm complaining about. lol
