I have heard from old people (may be a joke) that it is not right(fare) to ask the age of a women and salary of a man. Do you ever heard such a thing , do you agree with it?..

Well I think there are cultural differences at play. Here in Canada it is extremely impolite to ask women for their age and to ask anyone, man or woman what their salary is, unless you are a very close family member.

Well you could always answer: Unfortunately they don't pay me enough, or you could say: I am happy they pay me enough for the work I am doing.
