Did you know that I’m invisible?
It’s so very interesting.
I’m a keen observer of human behavior and interaction and as I have aged, I’ve noticed that I’ve become more and more invisible.
Some of it is grand; some of it sucks.
To not to get stupid comments on the streets of NY
To be able to walk around in a cloak of invisibility much like in Harry Potter
To (occasionally) have someone give me a seat on the subway
To have gravitas brought about by decades of experience and success
To be marginalized because of age
To have the wait staff assume I need help accessing the menu with the QR code
To assume that everyone past 50 must dress in pastels and cardigans
I think this happens at networking meetings as well!
What’s been your experience?
