This just keeps getting better and better with this nonsense. Seniors are the new boogiemen under the bed for a particular sub-set of posters who are enjoying getting our bloodpressure to spike. Same type of behaviour from these folks when you question their rudeness in public; they respond with "grampa" as though that should be taken as an insult. It is now, and always will be a compliment retards!
They don't think we owe them anything but apologies would be nice. Haaar; don't hold your breath there waiting for that one from me sweetcheeks! I've explained already that I'm still putting into the sytem MORE than you probably are. I don't see a dime of OAS and until you've contributed to CPP for over 36 years so you can say you've put in the same as me I'll disregard anything you have to offer on thst issue too.
Now what other little entitlement that I'm getting is supposedly coming out of your pockets at a greater rate than mine? Health care; try again boobie; I'm fullly covered for out of province, eyeglasses, hearing aids + batteries, chiro, massage therapy and even damned grief counselling if needed.
You didn't and won't contibute one drop of sweat equity to get me anything junior. In final anlysis if you're sitting on some civil service job; I've been paying your freight rates on your screen time.
No one forced you to go for the brass ring and rack up student debts; coulda taken an apprenticship and had that 100k a year job but I suspect you would not have been able to hack the regimen required. So instead of being a contributor to the sytem for those years of learning while paying taxes you elected to sit in a classroom and not pay taxes to garner an education you knew at the outset WASN"T going to produce the returns your idiot guidance counsellors may have led you to believe. You made a choice; perhaps a bad one, tough, suck it up and stop blaming us.
We shouldered debts left by our forefathers and so will your children but if they learn anything from your bellyaching it will be abject shame at your behaviour and a commitment to not repeat your self-absorbed performance.
Seniors discounts at restaurants - you gotta be chitting me!
