Keep reading it...it'll sink in (but you'll only get it if you're over 40).
Not over 40, so I guess I’m not in the know. Obscure reference or?
I don’t get it...?
After a week of reading posts about how Holly Patreus “brought it on herself” by looking her age—I got it right away. And the general is a stooped pencil-neck with a dyed comb over...
Nope, no obscure references needed. It’s all right there in front of you.
It took me three or four times through to get it. Stick with it.
I’m sure somebody will come along with a spoiler soon, but not me.
Try this one;
Paper, “better for the environment”.
The whole reason plastic bags came into use was to save the trees.
IOW, what goes around, comes around, and the whole environmental angle was nothing less than a scam.
Went right past me because I always was of the impression that paper was better for the environment.
Geeze, there’s that common sense again. Inconvenient.
Oh, ok — spoiler. It’s that, with age, you become invisible.
Lol...fun reading these posts...
yes, I’d read that one before.. I like Day by Day...
...to young women.
Thank you, yes, that’s funny.
I’ll never forget the day I took my 13 year old son into Burger King and the cashier was looking at HIM the whole time.
Must be something about Burger King though because about 15 years later I got an automatic senior discount from the 16 year old cashier, and I was 5 years short of qualifying for it.
They have no time for chatty old folks.
This is right up there with the time Mike was listening to his favorite songs on the radio and someone asked why he was playing "Muzak", or asking if there was an elevator nearby.
When I heard Steely Dan in an elevator, I knew I was old.
Hmmm...we need a mature person store where you have to at least have 50 years of LIFE experience to work there and shop there. Nice big bathrooms, chatty folks, nice coffee shop in back, magnifying glasses at the end of every aisle, stuff like that.
Getting old makes you invisible to young ladies.
