I can't agree with you more. People only act on a level with their "awareness." I look back on my younger days and can't believe the way I acted, the things I thought - or, more importantly, DIDN'T think - and, frankly, I'm quite amazed. I also remember how some older, more experienced people treated me. Like they understood I was coming from a place of, let's say politely, naivete.

Yeah, it does give away my age, true. But hell, I figure my salt-and-pepper hair does that anyway. In fact, it has spawned a nickname for me from some of our younger trainers: "Frosty." Bastards. LOL.
Ah well, I just tell 'em "Yeah, and I've earned every one of those white hairs."

Nice misplaced apostrophe!

(Sorry, the picture that Mr. Cat posted had a mistake in it. I thought it would post the pic when I quoted it.)

I hear ya!

I have to remind myself some days when I'm busy sitting on the fence undecided or non committal about some things that when I was younger things seemed so much more black and white and I was more vocal about how I felt about particular things but the older I get the more I know that I know nothing so I've learned to sit on the fence and watch the scene around me unfold before I decide what I think. AND it doesn't have to be all one way or the other anymore. It's ok to hang out in the grey area.

Goodness knows what the older, more experienced folk around me really thought when I rocked up sporting my first piercing, followed closely by my first tattoo in my early 30s. But they smiled politely and asked me why and then promptly forgot all about them because it didn't really change me in any significant way in terms of my interactions with people. Most of the time if I have shoes on people forget anyway I think.

I once knew a lady who had her then boyfriend's name "BUCK" tattooed on her lower back with nice, huge almost calligraphy type letters with an elaborate surrounding design.

They broke up. We recommended that she change the "BUCK" to "F**K". But she didn't.

Then there are those 1% who do stalk. They ruin it for the rest of us perverts. As I mentioned earlier, think goodness you ladies can't read our minds. You have been undressed many times and just don't know it.
...well I have been known to have a religious experience in the frozen food section on occasion

I've got three tatoos..One on lower back above crack thats a Tarurus bull sign (I am 100% this), on front bikini line area is a heart with a teardrop (for love of my life many years ago) and not too long ago after breaking up with ex, I had "strong woman" in Chinese letters tatooed on base of my neck. All three are able to be hidden as I didn't want them showing for when I work professional jobs. They all have personal meaning and not just random crap..
