I had a co worker, Joe, who was constantly being teased about his age. He wasn't really that much older than everyone else, but he had grey hair and he'd been there for a while. Some of the younger guys would call him Grandpa Joe, War Boomer on When he asked to be considered for a team leader rule, the manager actually said in front of everyone, I think that's more of a young man's game. He went to the manager privately and complained about age discrimination. But the manager said maybe his skin was getting thinner with age. After he complained to senior management, he was criticised on his next performance review and given a lousy project nobody else wanted.
