What You Should Never Say To Someone Over 50

What You Should Never Say To Someone Over 50

Commented Jul 25, 2013 at 11:30:26 in Fifty

“I'm 59. And a half. Although I have been pretty consistent with exercise for the past three decades, I decided to get serious about it and started boot camp in May. This week a young woman who was attending her second class said "I give you credit!" It felt like 'because you're old' was hanging in the air. I know she meant well; the majority of the commenters mean well, but sheesh!”

“I get that all the time from new people at my gym. I don't get offended as they are attempting to compliment me. I just don't understand why younger people automatically assume that it is some sort of miracle that a person past 50 is fit and competitive. It is nice though that the "kids" are always helping me rack weights, spotting me and such. I think they are worried that I might keel over at any second or break a frail bone. LOL”

“I get pretty irrational when it comes to plastic bags. I always bring my reuseables, but sometimes not enough of them. Then I have to try to not snarl at the hapless bagger who tries to bag the bag of onions in double plastic bags. And who trains said baggers to bag a maximum of three items per bag? And they don't really need to put the shampoo in its own bag because it's a non-food item. It won't contaminate those oranges.”

Birthing While Black: An Experience I'll Never Forget

“The story is indeed reprehensible, and I hope you brought it to the attention tof the hospital administration. It's offensive not only because of the money that was paid to ensure a positive birthing experience, but that ANY new mom would receive such shabby treatment. That having been said, as a worker in child safety, I would be thrilled and delighted if every newborn was tested for drugs. And in the vein of it-can-happen-to-anyone, some thirty years ago, in our then-overcrowded hospital, my shrink had to labor in the hallway of the facility where she held privileges.”

“Because the child abuse was allowed to continue for a decade -- due only to protecting the football team, that's why.

The oh-so proud people of Penn State's sports organization are directly responsible for the abuse of probably dozens of children -- many of whom were underprivileged to begin with.”

Why Is It So Hard To Exercise?

Commented Aug 26, 2011 at 09:59:00 in Healthy Living

“I DO exercise, most days. But when I don't, it usually has a lot to do with laziness. That, or time of day, as in cocktail o'clock. That notion of self-confidence as a reason for not working out is intriguing. I am overweight and middle-aged, and maybe I'm simply at a stage in life where I don't really give a damn if I don't look good in lycra. In fact I'm quite confident I don't. But I can and do visualize myself running, gazelle-like, and the visualization gets me off my ass.”

“Her hosting was also inappropriate. Those scenarios should never arise. You don't act like a queen around your guests unless YOU ACTUALLY ARE THE QUEEN.

“What raise? I work for the State of Florida. I haven't had a raise in 5 years. Rick Scott is taking 3% of my money starting next month, even though I took this job, in spite of the low pay, because of the bennies.”

“There is a bill in Michigan (which is controlled by a repub governor, repub house & repub senate) to cut public workers' pay by 5%. They've already drastically cut education funding causing massive teacher layoffs, and cuts to art, music, sports and school transportation. In the meantime, the budget bill recently passed here gives tax breaks to corporations, saying it will create jobs (yeah, right - heard that one before). The governor (snyder) has hired his corporate cronies to be "emergency financial managers" so they can take over municipalities in financial trouble. These EFMs had 2 weeks training and the mayors elected by the people have been kicked out by them in 3 cities, so far. Oh, I forgot to mention, the Michigan congress has recently voted themselves a pay raise, too.”

“One of our Buenos Aires friends said that tango shows were only for tourists. And then she did an about-face and suggested that we spend an evening at La Esquina de Carlos Gardel. It's a fabulous show, and worth the expensive tickets. Even the dinner and wine were above average. Afterwards she took us to a local night spot, and as you've already guessed, the place was packed with Argentinians. Nor were they disco-ing. They were tangoing like mad. It's true, they weren't perfect and polished, not like the dancers in the show. But they were having at least as much fun. If the tango wasn't so demanding, with so many difficult steps, I'd join a class myself. Did you? Viva Buenos Aires!”

“I roast chickens and turkeys upside down. Or I use scissors to cut out the backbones and smoosh the bird into a pan to roast it right side up. But my easiest and most mindless chicken is one I stick on the center of a bundt pan, on top of a bed of onions and potatoes. Put a piece of foil over the hole of the pan to keep the drippings where they belong.”
