absolutely not. The older you get, the more important and more influential. Since my wife is the daughter of the youngest of 9 - she is the babies', baby - wherever we went, we were lavished with attention, food... you name it. All of this by people who had very little to share. Here, take out our only means of transport, our scooter. here share all the food we have, here! My wife's family was probably my favorite part of our trip.
My least favorite? Either riding on a bus or visiting the hospital..... its a toss up
