Baguettes sold as ‘crinkly old bags’
[A food company] sold baguettes as 'crinkly old bags', and as far as I know they still sell them.
[I think this is ageism] from my gut instinct, I felt offended knowing how it is used as an insult towards older women.
[This made me feel] very offended, belittled, excluded and patronised. I was shocked that it was so blatant, the butt of an in joke which they think they can get away with, because it thinks its customers are from a different demographic. I felt depressed because it's not deemed unacceptable! When I complained to the company they said they thought it was meant to be 'quirky'!
This confirms how deep rooted ageism is and how many are so blind to it.
