why do I find old asian people are so Fking annoying?

I just talked to an asian man age above 70.   He didnt thank me when I walked for about 100 meter to show him the way out from the hospital.  He asked me if I had a job (I'm a 40 year old engineer with my own office).   Weird question and rude. 

Update:

My father was sick  and he is a guy who knows my father (he is younger than my father).

    Then your father must be way more annoying.

    Different ages, different cultural backgrounds, different ideas about polite small talk.

    I could imagine that he really meant, "What kind of work do you do?"  This was not rude enough to be offended about, really.

    There is always going to be a person who says or does the wrong thing.

    Do not think about it cos you absolutely did the right thing.

    He could have just thought that you were just doing your job but hey ho he is an elder and when people have things wrong with them and are in poor health they may say the wrong thing to you but to them they do not think they are being rude in asking that.

    Only you know the answer to this question. Why are you asking strangers to read your own mind?

    I get annoyed at similar things sometimes but I brush it off. It’s important to remember that he’s a lot older than you, so he may have grown up with different etiquette than you expect. Do you know if he’s originally from the same country as you? If he’s from another country, this also shows that his social etiquette is different from yours. Overall, pay attention to people’s intentions rather than your expectations. He might not intend to be rude, you’re just expecting more politeness. 

    And asking if you have a job was probably just him trying to make conversation..

    You have a severe social maladjustment.

    Because you aren't one and think yourself to be better than others. If we didn't have people like you in the world we would have a lot more trouble identifying pleasant people.

    I don't suppose it occurred to you that he may have been ill and disorientated? He was in the hospital and of advanced age. Your lack of empathy is obvious.
