Mad Men: When Being 30 Is A Single Woman's Darkest Secret

On last night's Mad Men, we finally saw some of the cracks Joan Holloway's ice-y demeanor when Paul Kinsey — an exec at Sterling Cooper and one of Joan's exes — retaliated against her (on point) bitchiness by photocopying her license and hanging it in the break room so everyone could see her real age. Joan, who normally is very supportive of her employers and their boys-will-be-boys ways, made her disdain for their assholery clear (if just a little). Also, how insane is it that not so long ago, it was an embarrassment for it to become public knowledge that a single woman was 30 years old? Clip above.
