anonbee58 :  She’s not even that far from 30 her damn self if she’s in her late 20’s as you stated…..girl I would set her straight, I promise you that. There’s a thin line between humor and rudeness and she crossed it a long time ago. I’m not sure what you are waiting for……

I haven’t read all the comments so apologies if this was previously mentioned, but in addition to being rude and wildly inappropriate, in the U.S. age is a protected class, which makes age-based harassment or discrimination illegal. I’m not sure if these comments rise to the level of either, but I think this is definitely worth bringing up with management and/or HR, and they would have a better idea of that. 

I’m also completely perplexed that anyone over the age of about 5 would think 30s is old?
