  • I assume this is towards my question.. It wasn't meant to be rude .. It was just a question. I didn't force anyone to answer it.

  • Absolutely it is, it just reminded me of getting popped for being mouthy and rude

  • Heck yes. For as long as I can remember my Grandmother refused to tell anyone her age. As a kid I'd ask her every year on her birthday how old she was turning and every year she'd yell at me, lol.

  • No, my Mom is still 20. She always has been ever since I started asking her. How she does it, I'll never know!

  • I've heard that you never ask a lady her age, her weight or how much she makes. You'll probably never get a straight answer anyways! lol :p

  • Its 2013.. Don't think the same rules apply now than when your grandmother was popping you in the mouth. Women on here and say "f" this and "f" that, but I ask how old you all are and a whole question is made about how rude I am? Really..

  • I'm not talking about how rude you are , it's a general question because a lot of us were raised that way. You aren't that important dear, it just reminded me of a different era and how funny it is that it's ok to do that now.
