I truly had no idea

that being 41 was a detriment.

I answered an ad on CL for a temp room to rent while I am waiting for Shawn to arrive in Alaska. This was a FELLOW Air Force married couple and advertised under short term room to rent.

I told them my situation and a little bit about me, 41, female, married, employed etc..

and this was the ***holes reply back to me.

" Give me a call and set up a time to meet ( I said I didn't live there yet so clearly he can't read)"
" However we really wanted someone our own ages ( 19, 25, and 27)."
Sgt **** at (***)-***-****

You have GOT TO BE KIDDING ME.

My reply back was not very friendly nor PC, my only hope is that Shawn is the Punk A$$'s new Supervisor.

I also have his phone number, so he really is stupid. HE totally dissed me , illegally age discriminated against me and yet STILL gave me his phone number.

I am going to have fun with that.

Why would they want someone their age? What difference would it make? RABs

They probably want to party all the time and play that mind-numbing bass thumping that passes for music (says one who has similar age group for neighbors)
You're probably better off not having to live with them.

Hmmmm.....sounds like they are looking for a swinger.
A young, firm bodied, saucy little swinger.

Maybe you could call back as a make-believe person masquerading as a sweet young thang and see what they're up to.

I bet it's no dang good!

Here's the thing with twenty-somethings advertising for housemates: you really don't want to be with them anyway! As a person who lived with housemates as a college student and then after graduating, I know housemate situations are waaaay tricky! You can meet your best friend that way, or be miserable. And a miserable housing situation is The Worst. It's good that they revealed what they want right away. Because they want to do 20-something things (which is fine for them) and you won't want to. Maybe you just dodged a bullet! Keep looking--you'll come up with either a different kind of house that cares not how old you are, or another house that will truly value you because you are 41 and not 21. Does it make you feel better that if I needed a housemate, I'd be psyched if you answered the ad? (It's true!)

Seriously, take that as a blessing in disguise. It sounds like they want someone their own age so they can party it up; even though who says you can't party it up too, right?! Regardless, I'm still sorry you were put in that sitch. I know I would have been annoyed with that too; I'm not longer a twenty something so I feel the pain!

Get over yourself! Why would a bunch of people in their late teens/early twenties want to live with someone old enough to be their mom??
