    Default Why are peole in Scotland ageist?

    This is ideal for me, but I am too old at 50.
    How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror.

    Thanks for sharing that

    You've come right out the other side of the forest of irony and ended up in the desert of wrong.

    Lie about your age, a gig is a gig and it doesn't sound too demanding.

    40 is 70 in Scotland, 50 is 90 etc etc... HTH.
    Science isn't about why, it's about why not. You ask: why is so much of our science dangerous? I say: why not marry safe science if you love it so much. In fact, why not invent a special safety door that won't hit you in the butt on the way out, because you are fired. - Cave Johnson

    Oh, HAB, poor HAB. You've missed the point.

    They're not ageist.

    Oh, this is so desperately bitter sweet.

    Don't walk away from them now, just when you've found them. That would be tragic.

    Dear, dear HAB. It's just that they've just been searching for you for ten years.
