There is no issue here about 35yrs old and above lady not getting free drinks. Guys don't get free drinks. Sexism is a more serious issue here, which no one bring up. But come on, it is just a drink or 5 drink? If don't drink, there are still other things to do in life. Is Singapore that bored that everybody needs a drink?
Our media (that is controlled by u know who) keeps saying that when u are old, u are still valuable blah blah blah all the crap. Lets face the fact, u are only valuable when u are old, only when u are in the high managerial, ceo etc. position. this is the hard fact of life that our media wont tell u.
If u are the mid range managers, lower level skilled workers, then sorry, if u are old, our society will replace u with the younger ones.
wats the link of this to the thread of "ladies nite: only for <35y.o.? " the meaning is the same, ur value just simply decline as u grow older, unless u are the spectacular someone who just look fabulous even when u age.
my advise for the young ppl (below 40) age discrimination is everywhere, its a part of life. Work hard and save up when u are young to support u when u are old.
