Ok so I don't have any friends that are my age with kids so I have never got to ask, but have always been curious. Have you ever been somewhere with your children and someone says things like you're too young to have children and then questions your age? What do you say??

I am 23, will be 24 in April but probably look 17 or 18 and I get this EVERYWHERE I go, and it's to the point that it disturbs me, and always wished I would say mind your own, but don't have the nerve!

Thankfully I never get this. But if it happened I'd probably be an ass right back. First off I'd probably be like, "uh do I know you" and when they said no then I'd be like, "then you don't know me either, mind your own business". lol!

i got the same thing (when i was 23 they asked what grade i was in when i started my job lol).  i would just tell them my age when they asked and that would be the end of the conversation :)  i was always polite about it (because it's the mature way to go) but i was always kind of annoyed about it too...

I agree I don't get these questions? people are really that rude? If people think that of me I must not pay enough attention or maybe it's cz' i don't care what others think of me...

Most people don't say it in a mean way to me either, but I like your response, never thought of that one. I did have one lady who said I needed to stop having babies because I was too young!!! I just hate getting questioned everywhere I go!
