Age

It is improper to ask someone how old they are.  It is also improper to ask others to guess your age.

If you find yourself in the dilemma of guessing a person’s age, it is politically correct to subtract at least five years from the age you believe them to be.

If you are asked by a teenager to guess their age, add one or two years.

If a child under ten asks you to guess their age, you better be right on.  They are all about exactness.
