Q: What is your physical age and your mental age?

The wife told me to act my age
this got me thinking about what it was like when I was younger.
the mind is still willing but the body cant always back it up.
so I would say 44yrs and somewhere between 16 and 20 yrs on occation
and the odd 2yrs moment of course

Your physical age can be how much in shape you are. Many people in their 50's to 60's say they feel like they are in their 30's just because they are in good shape. The mental age could be how smart one thinks of themselves.

Age is relative.  I am actually 37, but the locals keep thinking I am 30, so I will go with that!!  
But I often think I am like 24 in China....maybe it's culture...maybe it's my libido.  surprise

To me, physical age is how many years since birth.  And mental age is how I feel and act, it has no relation what so ever with how smart I am, my IQ or my degree of intelligence.

But waht else can you expect of Mattaya, you offered him the opportunity of 4 points, and he took it, even if his answer was bologne.

My physical age is 68, and my mental age is somewhere in the 40's.  I have excellent health, a sharp mind, a head full of hair, still brown, no white.  I still play volleyball, softball, football (soccer) and swim every chance I get.  I can climb six or seven flights of stairs without dragging my tongue on the floor, and have never used Viagra.  So, what age does that makes me?

It is not polite to ask a woman her age Wink

Depending on the circumstances, mentally I can be 12, 18, 30, 50, 70....

Physically, I'm 41.
Fortunately I do not look 41. I like to play hide the teacher with my freshman and just blend into the class the first day. I've heard very interesting things about myself that way.

As I like to say - my body is made from the dust of stars that died billions of years ago... my soul has been around since before creation.. .anything else is irrelevant.

(to which, most ppl say "OMG, you're that old!!" Tongue)

Anyway, this body has managed to survive (ever decreasingly well) forty...two?? years (IIRC).

Mentally... hmmm - as the others have all said - sometimes 14, sometimes 20, sometimes 80...  eitherway, 'not my age' - other than being responsible, mature and sensible (sometimes).

It annoys me when the only thing a person looks at is a number to decide things about you (too old, too young, etc etc)

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
