As a 35yo who is completely gray AND has a beard I am the sole authority on this matter. I feel like both lend me a bit of "perceived expertise"... but I guess that could also be because I actually have the expertise to back it up...

Just own it. There will always be superficial people that judge others based on looks, all you can do is to prove them wrong.

Potentially unpopular opinion: I only tip for food when I'm being served (takeout, fast food, counter service I don't tip). It is not my job to supplement the wages of individuals who are exploited by management. The great resignation has shown us that workers have incredible power right now and I hope they use that to their advantage. Overall, tip culture in the US is horrific and needs to go the way of the dinosaur
