When it’s better to act your age

I’m not much for technology but one senior banker friend always stresses how important it is for us oldies to live young if we want to understand our juniors better.

One way he tried to do just that was by installing an app which allows him to post pictures and follow his colleagues (though why anybody would want to is beyond me).  

On Tuesday, when everyone else in Singapore was celebrating independence day, my friend, who was alone in his office, took a picture of the pile of work on his desk and posted it online.

But he soon realised that his best efforts to be down with the kids had backfired when two of his younger colleagues walked into the office because they they thought his picture was a rebuke.

What is it they say about old dogs and news tricks?
