I notice the young and the old alike love to ask "How old are you?" which is a such a horrible question, especially for a single lady like me. When my young nephews came over to visit during the Chinese New Year, one of them kept on asking "How old are you?" When I threatened to box his ears, he asked another dreaded question "How much money in your bank acount?" Really wanted to box his ears! In another occasion, while waiting for a friend at the bus-stop, overheard conversation between 2 old ladies. One lady was seated at the bus stop, another approached her and the conversation went like: Second: Any one sitting here? First: No, take a seat. Second: Thank you. Where are you going? I'm going to visit my grandchild First: Taking bus XXX, going to the doctor. How many grandchildren you got? How old are you? Second: I'm already 85, 3 grandchildren already. What about you? First: Wah, you are even older than me, I'm 84, 5 grandchildren
