Top 15 Signs of Age and Aging

Hey, Baby Boomer so you’re getting older and you don’t know what to expect. Try these on for size.

 

You know you’re getting old….when you can remember the day when you could pronounce all the NHL’s players names, Mahovlich was the hardest. (Canada)

 

When someone offers you a “joint” now you automatically think, ‘would that be a knee or hip?’

 

You order the super TV pack, just because it has the Weather Channel.

 

Back in the day, we remember yelling “Hey, Culligan Man”. Today we know why. He’s the only one that’ll come running when you slip in the tub.

 

Becoming a senior is great, because if you happen to end up in prison, you won’t be getting all those romantic looks from cellblock D.

 

Becoming a senior means you understand you really won’t be getting romantic looks from anyone.

 

Getting older means some bodily functions are like swallowing scrabble tiles. You know one good sneeze, could spell disaster.

 

When you and your buddies wanted to go to the Drive-In. The ones with no money always got in….in the trunk.
You can remember when a “Race Issue” was arguing about who ran the fastest.

 

We finally understand why babies are so cantankerous … plastic and paper underwear.

 

The kids today love the movie”Frozen.” We lived it, always playing hockey on an outdoor rink no matter the temperature. (Canada and Alaska)

 

You end up having to wear Bi-Focals or the new term, Progressive Lenses. This is good guys, everything is so much larger when you look through the bottom half of the glasses. Just make your wife wear them to bed.

 

You remember how our sense of humour was formed around Grade One. OH, how our parents laughed, when you asked for a ride to school. “What are ya kid, some kind of comedian?”

 

Remembering that when you had a job, phoning in fake sick on the weekend was not an option. Your parents made you go to work. Hey, they’d even give you a ride. A ride to school NO WAY but ride to work…Oh, Hell Ya!

 

To the old and young never be afraid to speak out and up. The most important saying you need to know that can apply to so may people and so much in your life, is “Hey, Get Off My Lawn!”

 

You think that the Led Zeppelin cover band performing at the old folks home, should have sang “Stairlift to Heaven.”
   So to the seniors that are feeling shelved, it’s time to get up read a paper, watch the news, learn something new on the computer and most important of all, stay engaged with your surroundings with a sense of humour. Don’t let yesterday use up to much of today.
   To all the kids and grandkids, call you’re parents and tell them you’re thinking of them and you love them, while you still have the chance. Remember you always learn lessons from their past, which gives you the future, where you can apply them.

Thanks for taking the time to read this. If you laughed give it a “like” and pass it on. If you didn’t “Hey Get Off My Lawn”

Politicans Endorse Discrimination and RAPE!

Politicians in the USA and Canada endorse discrimination !! They don’t mind seeing the elderly financially RAPED. Not one politician replied to my inquiries about the discriminatory practices of Insurance companies and Term Life policies.

Even the OmbudService for Life & Health Insurance endorse the discriminatory practices of Insurance companies in Canada, just look at this quote from that office, who by the way, is the office that handles complaints about insurance……
”You are quite right that insurance companies discriminate.  For example, younger people pay lower life insurance premiums than older people (age discrimination).  Since women live longer than men, they pay lower life insurance premiums (sex discrimination).   An individual who has just been diagnosed with an invasive cancer will not be able to obtain medically underwritten life or health insurance (discrimination based on physical infirmity).  And, older experienced drivers pay lower car insurance premiums than teenagers (again, age discrimination)”.

Insurance Companies have been getting away with this kind of practice forever, but in their case it’s age, sex and disability discrimination. You can hear the insurance companies whining, “well, we base all of our policies on Actuarial Tables”. These tables are the result of exhaustive studies that have been done to more less tell insurance companies just how long people will live and it’s these studies that are the bedrock of the insurance business.

So if the success of a business can be directly linked to a “study or studies” why haven’t other businesses done that?
For example, if you want to base a business on studies the biggest boy on the block is the US Census. As a future business owner one of the things to look at, is who can afford your product. One might even base your sales on selling to those people with the highest annual income.

It looks like Asians make more annually than the rest of us. How far do you think you’d get if you put up a sign that said, “Only Asians Served?” You’d be brought up in front of a Human Rights Board. Which is, shock of shocks, common sense and the LAW.
With fewer and fewer folks having a retirement nest egg these days, it only makes sense that more folks will be living off of our countries old age pension systems. After looking up what an old age payment would be from many sources, in the US and Canada the average monthly government paid old age income would be around $1200.00 dollars per month. In some cases it might be more and some, less. If you retire at age 65 let’s look at what term life insurance will cost you on average

By doing NOTHING politicians are endorsing this Age and other forms of Discrimination. Plus support the financial rape of the elderly. With elections looming this is not good practice for any politician. These insurance buyers are the folks that want to leave something for kids and grandkids. Even to be able to afford a funeral. Sure they bought life insurance, but life insurance is something you buy and forget. Believe me, when you’re slammed with a 600 dollar per month payment that jogs your memory pretty fast. No one can real afford that so…you cancel. You might look at other forms of insurance, but by the age you’ve reached by now, they all cost much more. It’s eye opening what Term Life will cost you in Canada anyway http://www.insurecan.com/ The USA is about the same as well.

Selling Term Life policies means that Insurance Companies are breaking the law. If company is caught making a profit off of consumers, by running an illegal operation. That company is usually told by the courts, to pay back all money.
In my opinion, since Insurance companies have been running a business based on, human rights stated, Discriminatory Practices, they should have to return all money paid to them by anyone that ever had a term life policy and change the way you do business so it’s fair for all.
You might ask why the media hasn’t jumped on this blatant law breaking. It all comes down to “don’t bite the hand that feeds”. Insurance companies are some of the biggest advertisers on the air and in print today.
Insurance companies as you’re laughing all the way to the bank just remember to …”GET OFF MY LAWN”
