we both work at Mcdonalds and have known each other for a few months. Just the other day, he told me he wanted to talk to me alone, and that's when he asked me out. I was shocked and told him Ill think about it, but Im embarrassed to even go back to work now. I might turn him down, he's not very attractive at least.
Now I am very much attracted to older guys, but 42 is a bit old. I like guys mostly between like 24-34.
what should I tell this guy?

Wow! Is he trying to get arrested? Wow! It's like he's asking to go to jail. Yes, you should turn him down at least for the time being (if not, for good). He must be a complete stupid moron for pulling this shit. If I were you, I'd strongly suggest mentioning this to your supervisor. He doesn't need to be arrested or even fired as he didn't rape you or harass you, but he does need to be talked to. If your supervisor is a kid like you, then I'd talk to your parents. You need some adult that will help you out of this. Even if you turn him down, he could get crazy. After all, he was crazy enough to ask a 16 year old out (when he's 42). If that's not crazy, I don't know what is.2

Let him down politely, but sternly. You want to make sure you are respectful but get the point that you are not interested whatsoever with him.
This is honestly disgusting. I remember working at McDs at 15 and I had 30+yr old men asking me out, many in their 40s. Ugh. Fucking pedos.
Anyways, make sure you also tell at least your parents or family or even friends you can trust. If he persists or makes you feel uncomfortable, tell a manager right away. I made the mistake of "letting it slide" too much with an old coworker of mine. I was 17 and he was a divorced man in his 30s. I kept being polite and telling him I wasn't interested, he would NOT STOP BOTHERING ME. He even resorted to stalking me! Needless to say, report it, preferably in writing and with a witness if available, to a manager because these older men oftentimes think it's ok to get out of hand very quickly.1
