How to ask women's age
Tom was conducting a survey in a remote countryside. One day, he knocked on Donna's door:
- Hello, Donna, I'm conducting a small survey of the population here. Can you please tell me your age?
Donna refused and gave the reason that asking a woman's age is an extremely rude matter. After nearly 10 minutes of no results, Tom tiredly said:
- Dear Donna, please kindly cooperate with our survey. Everyone in this area did well except you.
Donna looked at Tom suspiciously:
- My neighbor – Ms. Hill told you her true age, didn’t she?
- Yes, Ms. Hill did.
- Well then, just take her age to fill my place. I and she are the same age.
Tom sighed with relief, taking the pen to fill the survey form: "Donna is the same age as all the other women in the area are."
