Taking the help of its Facebook followers, the Huffington Post has come out with a list of things that one should avoid saying to people over 50 years of age.
One user, Cheryl De Primio posted on the social networking site that she got furious recently when a waitress condescendingly called her 'young lady'.
A Stephanie LaFortune wrote that she just doesn't care what anyone says to her or about her and that is the beauty of being over 50.
Telling someone "you should really learn to act your age" is a big no-no.
Facebook fan Debbie Gregorio Sottile notes that when people say "You look good for your age", they should probably leave out "for your age" part.
Actress Marianne Curan, 52, insists that people should stop calling her 'Ma'am' because it feels like they are saying 'Hey, aging lady with a coupon for chocolate calcium chews who's buying Fresca and writing a check, how are you today?'
