Why Is It Rude To Ask Someone’s Age Anyway?

I was in the Grant Museum of Zoology and saw a middle-aged woman with a little boy looking at a wooly mammoth model in a glass jar.
“The wooly mammoth lived 12,000 years ago.” the woman read off the label.
“How old was I then?” the boy asked. The woman chuckled, the boy looked flustered and said”Ah. No. That not what I meant. I mean how old were you then?”
