"Here in the UK (I appreciate this is a generalisation etc) old people want state pension, free bus pass, free TV licence, free insulation, winter fuel allowance, pension credit etc and then call my generation 'entitled'!"

Suffering Fools and Idiots

The older I get the less time I want to be around / spend time with / listen to / talk with / argue with / Fs and Is.  Any more I give them a courtesy listen then move on. This includes guys at work and even some former friends.  I guess I just don't care that much anymore.  Yes, I have a wide variety of friends.  I just feel I want my life to be a little more contented.  BTW It seems like it is almost always men.  Life is not always hard but it can often be difficult.See More
