    Default C'mon..... Joke time

    Some senior citizens are being criticized for the present deficiencies of our modern world; real or imaginary, present or past, foreign or domestic.

    We take responsibility for all our actions and omissions; we do not try to blame others for our past imperfections, ignorance or failures.

    Our generation saved the World from Fascism, Communism, and Racism, while we raised the Standard of Living, Health Care, and Life Expectancy.

    HOWEVER, upon reflection, we would like to point out that it was NOTsenior citizens who took:

    The melody out of music,

    The pride out of appearance,

    The courtesy out of driving,

    The romance out of love,

    The commitment out of marriage,

    The responsibility out of parenthood,

    The togetherness out of the family,

    The learning out of education,

    The civility out of behavior,

    The refinement out of language,

    The dedication out of employment,

    The prudence out of spending,

    And, we DO understand the meaning of patriotism, and remember those who have fought and died for our country.

    YES, I'M A SENIOR CITIZEN!

    I'm the life and soul of the party . . . even if it lasts until 8 p.m.

    I'm very good at opening childproof caps-with a hammer!

    I'm awake many hours before my body allows me to get up.

    I'm smiling all the time, because I can't hear a thing you're saying.

    I'm sure everything I can't find is in a safe secure place, somewhere.

    I'm wrinkled, saggy, lumpy, and that's just my left leg; but I haven't made my skin look like wall paper or snake skin.

    My ears, nose, tongue, or naval haven't been pieced with metal rings.

    I'm beginning to realize that aging is not for wimps.

    Yes, I'm a SENIOR CITIZEN, and I think I am having the time of my life!

    Now if I could only remember who sent this to me, I wouldn't send it back to them.

    Or, maybe I should send it to all my friends anyway. They won't remember, even if they did send it.

    Well where the joke then?

    This is old people moaning:


    The melody out of music,
    The pride out of appearance,


    The modern music/clothes suck, wear this old granny **** instead or listen to only classical....


    The commitment out of marriage, (Marriage itself was just some religious idea)

    The responsibility out of parenthood,
    The togetherness out of the family,
    The learning out of education,

    Rubbish.

    And, we DO understand the meaning of patriotism, and remember those who have fought and died for our country.

    Yes, I do too. It's an idea that one group of people are better and more entitled than another and thus righteous in their slaughter of thousands.

    I was in the McDonald’s drive-through this morning and a young lady behind me leaned on her horn because I was taking too long to place my order.
    ‘Take the high road,’ I thought to myself.
    So, when I got to the first window, I paid for her order along with my own.
    The cashier must have told her what I’d done, because as we moved up she leaned out her window and mouthed ‘Thank you.’, obviously embarrassed that I had paid her rudeness with a kindness.
    When I got to the second window, I showed them both receipts and took her food too.
    Now she has to go back to the end of the line and start all over.
    Moral: Don’t honk you horn at old people because with age comes cunning.
    Now-if I could just remember where I left my brain...

    That's been me for years. Apologies to all the people who told me their mother had just died, and I grinned away like a muppet.

    Well actually some of my Regular Clients ( business that change things all the time and have several branches) One in Particular that comes to mind that's the sort of thing he would do if someone annoyed him at the drive through.

    What annoys me the most is waiting in Line, person takes forever at the order Speaker, then only gets some small item like a Drink ***.
