We outdated people are sometimes given unattainable activity. Entrepreneurs, newspapers, cable tv firms, information channels, pharmaceutical firms, producers, and so on., all completely hate us. They provide us these unattainable activity. As a public service to entrepreneurs and different that take care of we outdated people, listed here are some issues that outdated individuals cannot do:
1. Outdated individuals cannot get to the phone earlier than you dangle up except you’re a telemarketer.
2. Outdated individuals cannot learn the small print on prescription drug bottles, the directions for secure use, or the dosage for nonprescription medicine.
We will not learn the directions for placing collectively that bamboo chicken cage (not as a result of it’s in Chinese language however as a result of the print measurement is minus 6).
We will not learn any of the small print that flies down the tv display screen or printed in slick magazines telling us that the drug being prompt might trigger diarrhea, nausea, dizziness, and sore gums.
We can also’t learn the circumstances for leasing or shopping for that new automotive being pitched on tv or in newspaper adverts.
three. We will not hear information individuals after they decrease their voices or determine to mumble as they do on a regular basis on our Twin Falls station, channel information stations, and for dramatic, on common TV applications.
four. We will not watch dangerous information. (Anyway, I can not. My spouse all the time adjustments the channel.)
5. We will not carry over 5 kilos so do not counsel 15 pound barbells to assist us get our muscle tissue “again in trim.”
6. We will not open packages containing issues we actually wish to get our arms on like a brand new tv distant, a DVD, an electrical automotive, a CD participant.
The plastic is so thick that our carpet knives do not even reduce it.
Hearken to this you packaging engineers: Outdated people haven’t got acetylene torches.
7. We will not comply with the directions for placing up that shed within the again yard.
We have now to return and take away Half 100653 and put in Half 100458 then put Half 100653 in once more, and so on.
This all the time takes 45 minutes.
The shed is meant to go up in three hours.
It takes us three days if we will get our kids to “take over” and end the challenge.
eight. We will not see what’s on tv due to the brainless twits on the cable firm’s tv information channel.
A discipline of solely two channels passes by on the backside of our display screen whereas the twits distract us from watching the underside of the display screen.
It takes 5 seconds for the 2 channels to whip by and reveal two extra channels.
One blink and it’s important to begin over.
Additionally, it’s important to watch all of the digital listings cross by earlier than the analog channels seem once more.
That is why I hate my cable firm even when they’ve very good staff that do not need me to modify to you-know-what. (I had a type of issues on the highest of my home and the cable man took it down and thru it in his truck. I by no means received a examine for the factor.)
I need the outdated display screen again that reveals a full display screen of analog channels and nothing else.
I do know. If I’d add the digital channels I would not have this downside. I might click on round like on the you-know-what. Effectively, I will let you know a secret. That does not work for me. After I’m at my grandkid’s home, they’ve to seek out the suitable channel for me. (They all the time discover one thing they like higher than what I wish to watch.)
Effectively, if I change to satellite tv for pc I’ll have much less of an issue.
(P.S.: My cable firm does not reply hate e mail.)
9. We do not perceive why a zillion firms are promoting the MedicareRx Prescription Drug Plan.
After we get to the drug retailer we discover that both they do not take “your plan,” you possibly can’t have the medicine anyway due to some medical mumbo jumbo, and that our medicine are in Tier three which have a better co-pay than our outdated plan.
(We all know that President loves the plan. That one purpose why we won’t love President Bush.)
10. We will not copy that phone quantity we have to name to get Nice Battles of World Conflict II for less than $9.95.
We look ahead to 25 minutes to get the quantity and it flashes by earlier than we discover our ballpoint pen will not write (which we examined on the newspaper whereas ready.)
So, let’s summarize:
Outdated individuals cannot see in addition to younger individuals.
Outdated individuals cannot hear in addition to younger individuals.
Outdated individuals cannot assume as quick as younger individuals.
Outdated individuals cannot memorize as quick as younger individuals.
Outdated individuals cannot transfer as quick as younger individuals.
Outdated individuals have aches and pains that distract them.
