This Wanted Sign in Mabini Street, Baguio City is Just Wrong

As the owner of any business enterprise, when looking for a new employee, you make sure that the wanted sign you put up attracts the right applicants. You can try to be funny by injecting a bit of humor into the sign. This is one way to attract eye traffic and attention.

This particular wanted sign put up by a department store along Mabini Street in Baguio City is probably trying to be funny but the one who've put it up doesn't realize that it's actually offensive.

We can brush off the "pangit" part. It's the "matanda" part that would make someone shake his/her head in disappointment. It's discrimination. It's the same as saying "Muslims need not apply." or "Ilocanos need not apply." or "Graduates of this (insert school) need not apply".
