We outdated people are sometimes given unimaginable activity. Entrepreneurs, newspapers, cable tv corporations, information channels, pharmaceutical corporations, producers, and many others., all completely hate us. They provide us these unimaginable activity. As a public service to entrepreneurs and different that take care of we outdated people, listed here are some issues that outdated folks cannot do:
1. Outdated folks cannot get to the phone earlier than you hold up except you’re a telemarketer.
2. Outdated folks cannot learn the small print on prescription drug bottles, the directions for protected use, or the dosage for nonprescription medicine.
We won’t learn the directions for placing collectively that bamboo fowl cage (not as a result of it’s in Chinese language however as a result of the print measurement is minus 6).
We won’t learn any of the small print that flies down the tv display or printed in slick magazines telling us that the drug being prompt could trigger diarrhea, nausea, dizziness, and sore gums.
We can also’t learn the situations for leasing or shopping for that new automotive being pitched on tv or in newspaper adverts.
three. We won’t hear information folks once 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 won’t watch unhealthy information. (Anyway, I am unable to. My spouse at all times adjustments the channel.)
5. We won’t carry over 5 kilos so do not counsel 15 pound barbells to assist us get our muscle mass “again in trim.”
6. We won’t open packages containing issues we actually wish to get our fingers 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.
Take heed to this you packaging engineers: Outdated people do not have acetylene torches.
7. We won’t observe 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 many others.
This at all times takes 45 minutes.
The shed is meant to go up in three hours.
It takes us three days if we are able to get our youngsters to “take over” and end the challenge.
eight. We won’t 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 whereas the twits distract us from watching the underside of the display.
It takes 5 seconds for the 2 channels to whip by and reveal two extra channels.
One blink and you need to begin over.
Additionally, you need 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 workers 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 obtained a verify for the factor.)
I would like the outdated display again that reveals a full display of analog channels and nothing else.
I do know. If I’d add the digital channels I would not have this downside. I may click on round like on the you-know-what. Properly, I am going to inform you a secret. That does not work for me. After I’m at my grandkid’s home, they’ve to search out the proper channel for me. (They at all times discover one thing they like higher than what I wish to watch.)
Properly, 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 corporations are promoting the MedicareRx Prescription Drug Plan.
Once we get to the drug retailer we discover that both they do not take “your plan,” you may’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 will not love President Bush.)
10. We won’t copy that phone quantity we have to name to get Nice Battles of World Warfare II for under $9.95.
We anticipate 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 folks cannot see in addition to younger folks.
Outdated folks cannot hear in addition to younger folks.
Outdated folks cannot suppose as quick as younger folks.
Outdated folks cannot memorize as quick as younger folks.
Outdated folks cannot transfer as quick as younger folks.
Outdated folks have aches and pains that distract them.
Are you nice communicators writing all of this down?
