    a question for the retired people

    i have a question for the retired people please dont take this the wrong way im not intending to offend any one or start a fight i notice when im on a lunch break and have very limited time and i need to do stuff at the bank theres always a bunch of old people in the que or they come in at work and want you to do something in your lunch break when they probably have all day to do it why lunch time one reason i could think of is they have a sense of humour like me and do it to piss you off as said im not trying to start a fight and dont think i have more privilages than them just something ive wondered about

    Just because they are `old` does not automatically make the retired.
    They may be just as busy as you due to having to work later in life.

    They probably take great delight in pissing off the young whipper snappers like yourself or maybe to check out the chicky babes (under 35's) on their lunch breaks

    Why don't you give electronic banking a go? As an old fart I cannot remember the last time I actually was in a bank. Most of my retiree mates use electronic banking. That way we can avoid being in queue with young people all pissing around with their smart phones and slowing the advance to the counter. I also have a phobia about being in a bank at the time of an armed robbery.

    My old man who is 56 to this day still uses one and refuses to use an eftpos card. Every payday he withdraws cash and pays the bills, he also cannot text or use a smartphone haha.

    Makes perfect sense to me. You cant "Overspend" that way. CCards make to too easy for people to live "past their means"

    I saw a study a couple of weeks ago that found the majority of us wouldn't be able to meet our commitments 2 weeks after losing our jobs

    I could probably last a year or two, but my commitment to buying fun stuff would be severely compromised
