at the supermarket a promo girl was at the corner handling down free taste of milk for adults. she was insisting me to have a taste. so i tasted both flavors chocolate and vanilla. then i went to my wife and told her to taste. she said it does really taste good and smells good as well. my wife is not a milk drinker but her saying that means the milk do really taste good. so she approaches the promo girl and ask.... and that milk is for what age? the promo girl answered for 45 years and above. then my wife look at me and said... so she thinks you are 45? har har har. do i really look that old? picture attached.

7th, Let me think…friend you don’t look like one. The promo girl is just so friendly and accommodating to let everyone taste the milk and be an advocate that it tastes good. Did you buy one? If you did…she did her job well, to convince even those below 45 hehehehehe to patronize their products. Maybe you can go back and her if you really look like a 450-year old man? What do you think?

no i did not. my wife was laughing at me all the way to the grocery counter. she was having a good day out of my expense. i did not buy the product for my wife is very particular on buying something like that. she makes sure she buys the right thing than wasting money. something happened to me years before that she told me to buy milk. and i saw a milk that was on sale. same brand of the milk she was telling me to buy. but when i reach home she was angry that i bought the right brand but did not read for i bought Anlene for 51 yrs old and above. it was a waste of time and money. i learned my lesson and she learns her lesson too not to trust me on buying things har har har

Does that mean if I'm 44 I cannot drink the milk? :) Ahh, errr, is there a reward for prevaricating here? If you are really worried you should ask your enemies, those are the people who will not lie to you when it comes to issues like this. Sorry, I peeked at your profile so I know how old you are. :)

Honestly, you sure look like somewhere along that age, 42-48 in that picture, unless you believe you never look photogenic to the camera, then in that case, you could look younger in real person, personal photo doesn't tell the whole story as there are several factors affect the image and face of a person in a photo. By the way, 45 years is not that old, it is just middle age especially if you are a married man, age and look is mutually excluded in a real world. lol!!

No..I don't think you look 45. I think that sometimes really young people don't have a good understanding yet about what age "looks" like. A sixteen year old might think a 25 year old looks 40..lol
• Philippines
8 May 10
a sixteen can look older maybe because of make-up or vices, there are a lot of teens that look ten years older than their age, but that is a different topic. it is only funny that my wife had a great laugh out of my expence har har har. thanks a lot for the response

Not really. These promo girls also give milk for those they know are not of that age group but may have parents that they can recommend the milk to. I always try out kids milk, but that does not mean that I am a kid (at heart, I am). But it might be a cue for you to start thinking if you should take extra care of your skin.
• Philippines

good answer for that one anne. but some people with kids with them make the kids taste it too. thats my concern with that, and because it really taste good this kids comes for another serving without them telling that this milk is not for them but for older. thanks a lot for the response

You don't look like 45... maybe 44 only peace. Well i never heard of anyone saying that a certain milk would range for the age such as 45 above..huh??? probably the best thing that she must have explained was the milk was just for adult, not telling 45 and such because that is somewhat misleading. Like a drink for seniors would be like Sustagen Prime(not promoting though). Anyway, there are really lots of milk in the market but just make sure that the one you will purchase is high in absorption rate rather than higher calcium with surnames including into it because that kind of calcium will never be good to ones health.

there are milk now that has age appropriate. there are milk for 51 and above, there is this 45 and above. just like there are milk that are low fat and full cream. yes i guess that milk is going to compete with this leading brands that is why they are having the free taste. but i think it is better for this promo ladies to tell the costumers that this milk is for 45 an above so the only people who will taste are the one who aged 45 and above. thanks a lot for the response

Hello there se7enthbird! No, you look like 35-40. Was it correct? i didn't look at your profile yet. Maybe the milk product was intended for person who have an osteoporosis. Just understand the promo girls, maybe they're just have to meet their quota for the day so whoever that pays interest in trying their milk product, they considered them fitted to the age bracket required to drink that milk, and not that you already looked like 45 years of age already. Cheer up and have a nice day!
• Philippines
6 May 10
thanks for the cheer up part. but the main reason of my concern is some of the people who are at the grocery are with kids that are younger. and because the milk does taste good they also make the younger ones taste it too without orienting that the milk are for aged 45 and above. there are appropriate milk for appropriate ages and that is my main concern. thanks a lot for the response

I checked your attached pic and would honestly say that for me, you don't look 45 or older...I guess the promo girl needs to be careful in approaching people considering that they have a particular age for their products or else, she will be insulted by some customers who is not open-minded! LOL!
• Philippines
6 May 10
yes i guess if they will not stop that, there will be costumers who are going to get offended. i was not offended. i was more offended when my wife started to laugh at me, har har har. she was laughing at me all the way to the counter. well i guess i need to start smiling a lot so i wont get mistaken as a 45 above person har har har. thanks a lot for the response

nop you look like you are in 35-40 age group.And by the way why on the earth they are allowing to have that milk for people above 45 only?Why cant people of all age taste milk.That promo girl is wrong on both things.Any way i saw you picture and one more thing i would like to add ,though you havent asked about it is you son is cute.
• Philippines

they are letting all people taste the milk but the milk is an adult milk that is appropriate only for aged 45 and above. the problem is some parents who are given cups to taste let their kids or grandkids taste the milk when it is not appropriate for children. that is my main concern here. thanks a lot of for the response

Hi "kuya" se7enthbird Hi! I don't expect that free taste nowadays have a required age. For me, the promo girl is wrong in that kind of scenario because she don't even ask first the costumer if he/she fits the required age for that goods or even put a banner or poster saying that it is for 45 years old and above. he he he !. They must clearly state all the desired information for a specific action they've maid so that it will prevent insult to other people and avoid conflicts! :D
• Philippines

most of the free taste dont require age but if the product that they are selling is a product for a certain age then they have to make sure who they are talking with. you dont want to see other parents letting their little ones taste a milk that was meant for adult. the promo girls needs more orientation i guess. thanks a lot for the response

Maybe the promogirl was not referring you as the 45 years she was talking to, maybe she thinks someone in your house was at the age of 45 and that could drink the milk..

As far as your profile page is concerned, you look too young to be drinking a middle-aged man's milk. :)

they would give the free taste to everybody I guess, because they count all the cups that are consumed.

Hi, se7enthbird. You look like you could be at least 39 to 42 years old. You look good. How old are you really though? I think that your wife was just teasing you..

Hi se7enthbird Do you think you look like 45? I think you just look like 5 or 6! The guy who on your left side, he looks like 45, so don't worry, you are so young, just enjoy your life, ok?

Hi! I think "Kuya" without offense made, you really look your age.

Think it this way; maybe the sales girl was just selling it to anybody to reach her targets. This has nothing to do with my age, cos I look and feel young. Simple :)
