Reading your article concerning stereotyping with merchandise for older people, it reminded me of a mailing I received soon after I reached 60 (am now 64). The brochure was advertising mobility scooters. Although I would normally recycle immediately, I decided to reply. I advised them that I did not need their scooter, as I rode an 850 cc motorbike, and requested that they took me off their mailing list. They have not contacted me again, and I still enjoy riding my bike.
