Getting old really sucks


A group of senior citizens were talking at the breakfast table in a Victoria nursing home.  “My arms are so weak I can hardly lift this cup of coffee,” said one.

“Yes, I know.  My cataracts are so bad I can’t even see my coffee,” replied another.

“I can’t turn my head because of the arthritis in my neck,” said a third, to which several nodded weakly in agreement.

“My blood pressure pills makes me dizzy,”…another went on.


“I guess that’s the price we pay for getting old,” winced an old man as he slowly shook his head.  Then there was a short moment of silence.

“Well, it’s not that bad,” said one woman cheerfully. “Thank God we can all still drive.”
