*Not to be confused with “GEEZER GLEE” - posts that celebrate awesome service and great stuff.
I remember the day when I could go to a movie and not be assaulted by non–stop commercials (I’ve timed this invasion of my senses over a few years and one such event topped out at 30 minutes including previews) for crap products. I.E. I’m paying the theatre to infest my brain.
I remember the day when I could buy a VCR tape (now DVD) and not have it littered with commercials for other crap movies they want to flog me. See above, I’m paying them to steal my time.
Hello? Small print on teeny tiny dooshy little bottles and boxes and labels - some even that are specifically elder products?
Telemarketing companies circumventing the “No Call List” by pretending they are “expanding” upon an existing product I may have.
Auto maintenance shops that insist I arrive at their premises at 7.30 a.m. after a 100km drive and even then can’t guarantee my car will be serviced that day and will not make an appointment, even though I’m a senior. Yeah, this senior is expected to drive 200km daily until serviced. I’ve counted four of them here in St. John’s who have that policy. Seriously.
