Something very nice happened to me this morning.

Post by Abdul Alhazred »

I went down bright and early to get my driver's license renewed.
It was fairly painless and everybody was nice and polite, even solicitous.

Who expects that? :)

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

It’s like when I went home for the holidays a few years back and realized it was being treated like an Elder. Not expected to give up my chair for anyone, people give up their chair for me.

It’s nice, but....

So, do you find that people just let you say racist things? Does no one laugh when you fart? Do people immediately call an ambulance when you fall down? Do people chuckle politely when you make a witty reference to an episode of Bewitched, but clearly don't know what you're talking about? Does the waitress at Denny's bring you the senior menu without you asking first?

Yeah, nice. :roll:
Such potential!

Do you remind your kids to change their oil at every opportunity? How about your grandkids? Great-grandkids?

We're definitely past it. The Jamaicans have started calling Mrs. Camel and me "Ma'am" and "Uncle". :cry:

I could if my car HAD spark plugs.
