9. "probably more sharp mentally than he is"
A sad and probably erroneous assumption to make. I am mentally much sharper than I was a noob to my profession. Those who master their trades are usually far more competent than know-it-all apprentices. Americans need to quit just buying into this idea that older workers have less ability. That is a lie told by management that doesn't want to pay them commensurate to their experience. Throw away society. First they threw away the undereducated and I said nothing. Then they threw away the elderly and I said nothing. Now they are throwing away everyone and the only people with a say work call centers in India.
