Do you think that woman needed new glasses,or what? LOL

I was waiting at the bus stop with my son,and a lady came walking up and proceeded to talk my ear off,
Apparently a few weeks back,she had subbed at my son's school and recognized him.
she asked his name and then said "and you are....?"
I told her I was his mom and she said "oh,I thought you were his older sister or something"
Color me surprised because even though I don't look 40,I CERTAINLY do not look like I'm in my teens,lol (my son is 11)
I mulled it over and thought that if you were to compliment someone,saying they look half their age is a strange one for sure

I remember when we went out to eat on my 32nd birthday, a lady said I looked familiar and asked if I went to school with her daughter. I was confused because the woman looked 40 tops. I was thinking she had meant 15 years before,but she meant went to school with her NOW. Eh??

Are some people just not able to determine how old someone is?

  • Until my 40s I was often mistaken for being way younger than I am. It's a compliment.

  • I cannot tell how old a person is from looking at them and now cannot tell their age by how they act and when a person says their old, I never say oh you do not look like you are 40-50-65- or whatever age, cause I do not know what a person should look like at certain ages.

    Some people carry themselves well others let themselves go.

  • There is a lady who comes into the store I work in every day. I found out the other day that she is over 70!!! She looks about 45 or so! No wrinkles to speak of, no gray hair, no achy walking... I mean, she really does not look her age! Some people age well, and it sounds like you will have the same luck!
