    Re: Old people are going away!

    I have real respect for old people because I know inside they don't feel old. They're exactly the same as me just 40-50 years further down the line, so I make an efforrt not to treat them differently to anyone else. That means disliking some of them too though.

    I can't wait to be old. I know I'll be the same as I am now in my head (if I'm lucky) and I'm going wind everyone up barging to the front of queues with my stick and being a nuisance. Everybody lets you get away with it then because you're 'old'. It's what I want to do now but I can't!

      All you hear from old people the week after Xmas is "Ooooh did you have a nice xmas? and the reply is always "ooh y know...quiet" they never have a good one or a bad one just...quiet.
      They never say fall over either they always say tumbled

          in a decade or two we will be them moaning about bills and saying things like back in my day etc..
          my granny always said to come and let your granny give you a kiss.
          gassing you mean nattering amethyst.

            oh no tricky.
            your becoming an oldie in your thirties.

            but where i live there is a big amount of old people 60 plus i mean.
            and they are living longer.
            by the time we are sixty our parents will be eighty odd,and we will both be talking the same language.

              Tell you what is disappearing though. Oldies in flat caps. You still see the odd one, usually in silohuette through the back window of a car being driven at 20mph, but overall they are on the way out. What has gone are old women wearing those funny turban hats.

                I keep thinking it's Tuesday.

                I'm 38, you know.
