OAP and old age people in general... some are a real pain! Do you agree? Watch

    • Thread Starter


    I used to go to my mates corner store a lot and sometimes when I was there with him, he used to get all sorts abuse from customers.

    Yesterday out of all I days, I popped by my mates store and stayed with him for a few hours. I went to his store when he started his shift, and the next thing you know an old age woman - maybe a OAP, asked him to give her the change she was owed 2 hours ago.

    My mate was being very reasonable - explaining to her that he had only started his shift and that he had to ask the person covering the previous shift -if her story was correct. However, she started raising her voice and called my mate very rude. In my mates defense, I did explain to her that he was being reasonable and she wouldn't shutup. My mate gave her the £5 that she was apparently 'owed'.

    My mate did give her the money, and even after receiving the money she started expressing a lot of hate.

    My point is, the majority of OAP and old people are real dicks! My wages are being contributed to the state so that scum people like old people can hurl abuse when they like, where they like! Speaking about the dole, would you agree that the state is being abused and making people lazy? A lot of young people are given dole money to help them survive - yet they spend the money on drugs, booze and alcohol. I have never claimed benefits and in fact I briefly worked part time when I was 16 and then went into further education
