Humour by templates – 2 :: Women’s age, men’s salary

Humour

We were told, etiquette demands that you never ask a woman her age nor ask a man his salary. An offshoot of this are the numerous jokes about women hiding their age. Of course today it is no longer taboo for women to not-hide their age. So ladies and gentlemen, presenting…

Humour template – 2 :: Women’s age, men’s salary

Whenever a woman tells you her age, ask, if you are in return expected to disclose your salary.

Note: This is only for men. However women could improvize and do the corollary.

Scenario:

She: “…blah, blah… and now they tell me this when I am 30…”
You: “Should I tell you the CTC or take-home?”
She: “What??”
You: “I’ll have to tell you my salary, right? Now that you just told me your age.”

This works better when there are other people present. In which case you could modify it slightly and involve another man to hedge the joke. Additional advantage: Greater the number of people, higher the chances of at least some of them getting the joke in the first place!

Scenario :

She: “…blah, blah… and now they tell me this when I am 30…”
You: “Jammy, you will now have to tell her your salary!”
Jammy: “Why??”
You: “She just told you her age!”

(Needless to say, this scenario assumes you are not Jammy!)
