Does hanging empty shopping carts off the door mirrors of vehicles whose owners are too lazy to return their empty cart to the cart corral count as an "Old Person" thing?


$100 Lululemon Yoga Pants (or male equivalent) for workouts at a $100/month Health club, but they can't push their empty shopping cart 50 feet for exercise.

.
???? I'd imagine whoever left the cart was finished and no longer had their car there. So, whose car mirror were you hanging it off of?

Good question. That was my first thought as well.

Oh dear. That is sad and you have my sympathy.

I went to a new dr two years ago and it was like talking to a little girl. She was a new graduate but so immature and trying to tell me things that I knew were wrong that I kept looking and found a grown up wonderful woman doctor.

Afternoon nap, for sure.

Still own books, CDs, DVDs.

Recently took up the local morning paper because a neighbor got a gift subscription and didn't want it. Takes all of 10 minutes to peruse and I find myself fascinated by the obituaries but whatever.

I wear the same outfit of shirt and shorts until they don't smell bad.

Got a routine for this and for that from what I eat to what I do in the day and I like it that way.

Close caption...for years. Love to watch silent TV and play on the tablet. Jigsaws, word games, card games.

TV is TCM, news, sports, older favorite shows. Exception is "The Closer". Love it.

I am cranking jazz and oldies and big band and classic country on the radio in my Chevy. Love local stations and satellite radio.

Talking to people on the phone. I love texting too but there are 2 or 3 people that we talk on the phone and there is one where we watch basketball games together on the phone.

That's all I can think of.

Met a new property manager last week whom we will be dealing with. We thought she was about 14!

When I'm on days off I eat dinner around 4-5pm.... because bedtime is 8pm.


I'm up at 4:15am like clockwork on my days off. Its odd...I used to be a night person decades ago...but now, after working dayshifts starting at 6am for a few years...I'm up at 4:00-4:15am all the time. I don't even have to set an alarm most of the time.

When I was a teen, I used to laugh at my mother & step-father with all of their pills. My mother would pretty much dispense them as if to say, "One for you, one for me." Now, every night, Hubby & I gather our pills. We get our own but will dispense the ones that we share (aspirin & fish oil). I laugh because we are now doing what I used to laugh at my parents for doing.

I catch myself complaining about "these kids nowadays" and am horrified.

Old person thing? What is that? The only old person thing I do is get medicare and SS payments. I take a lot of herbs, and stuff for my various treatments of chronic Lyme disease, but lots of young people have chronic Lyme.
