Employment / Too Old

I just have to vent because I had an interview with an out of state theatre for an APM position yesterday.  During the interview I mentioned how I had been an intern at the LDI lighting convention in 1998. I was just trying to show my technical skills too, but instead of asking about those, the interviewer asked me my age.  I told him, and he was very adamant about telling me the rest of the company were younger (I'm 28, I guess they're mostly in their early 20's.) This is not an issue for me, but I guess it is for him.  He went on and on about their ages, and how he's only 31, and he just felt that I "should know that" going into the interview process.  The rest of the interview consisted of me asking him questions about the season, change-overs, building, shops, etc, to get an idea of what it would be like to work there.  He was not really into it.  It was obvious we wouldn't click, so I'm withdrawing my application.  The interview really left a bad taste in my mouth.

I have never had age be an issue like this before. I feel old.
