Default Old people jumping queue

Really does my head in. Standing in a queue and the shop opens another till and the people behind feel the need to leap frog you to this newly opened till. It only seems to be old people that do this. Well to me it is anyway.
Someone should tell them that this is still queue jumping and next time I will knock your walking stick away and walk past your old crippled body to pay for my goods.

Yes but they've probably got less time to live than you so every minute counts What I find annoying is when someone, of any age, finishes their packing suddenly remembers that they have to pay and spends 5 minutes holding everyone else up looking for their purse/wallet.

Happens all time to me in asda, minute second isle opens everyone charges.

I generally laugh loudly and they look sheepish then. I'm in no rush anyhow.

Then they stand there putting all the crap back into their purse/wallet rather than moving somewhere out of the way!

Nothing, and I mean NOTHING is worse than the older folk who stand there analysing their mini statements at a cash machine while there's a queue....then put their card back in for another go!

I went mad at one once as I was running late, massive queue and they went on the cash machine 4 times! I just couldn't take it!

Old people have earned the right to be grumpy, rude and jump queues.
Duke of Edinburgh being a good example.

I always respect my elders, but there is a limit, and more often than not it gets crossed.
Like driving at a steady 40 mph, in a national and 30, just because it might save money!!!!

To a point I would agree but there are some old people who have earned the right to nothing. Pretty soon I'll be counted in the ranks of 'Old People' if not already and truthfully I can't say I've earned the right to be treated better or with more consideration than a younger person who's doing basically the same as I have done.

I have been lucky enough to have been employed almost permanently since the day I left school in December 1972/ I've had 2 x 6 month stints of unemployment and during the second stint I signed up with an agency and got a couple of days work every week. 39.5 years out of 40.5 years in employment is a reasonable achievement but has it earned me the right to preferential treatment ? Only preferential to some waster who hasn't done a days work in their life.

Think of this


For those who get there, we'll all be old eventually and when there will you remember this thread?
