Battled my way past all my fellow pensioners today who were all over the bargains like bad suit and stumbled on a satellite dish kit for £20. ...£18 with Wednesday discount.

 

Get yourselves down there baby boomers :rolleyes:

No, no and no! Never on a Wednesday!

 

I had to go into the Huddersfield store on a Wednesday morning a few weeks ago and it took ages, it was like a scene from "The Walking Dead" - barely conscious people wandering around aimlessly with baskets and trolleys abandoned everywhere.

 

I`m 58 in a few weeks so rapidly approaching the discount card stage, but SWMBO has strict orders to shoot me first.

As someone who frequents M&S for sarnies most days I can relate to Angus's experience (even though i have a number more years than him before I join ranks!) as its seems pensioners can only do their weekly shop there between around 1pm and 2pm when most office workers will also be visiting. ....

 

Aisle rage. ... ;)

Unless you've tried it, you simply won't understand. .....

I don't go to B&Q on a Weds eventhough I have a card. Our Tescos and M&S is empty at lunch times most days which is when we go shopping. 1:45 p. m. All gone back to work!!!

You all wait until you get old!!!!Believe me, it won't be long :o :o :o

Sadly no van anymore but 35 years was a good run

Silver backs? Rather derogatory I feel.

The Silver back is the dominant Alpha male, so quite flattered to be associated with the male of the species, now if he'd said "coffin dodgers" I would have been miffed

Wouldn`t know what to do with one, don`t think I`ve been on a bus for over 40 years and don`t intend to start, ta!

 

Even the TV licence thingy is a waste of time as if you don`t have satellite/cable you are better off with the radio.

I only shop at B&Q on coffin dodgers day. I've had a card now for some 7 years and enjoy the 10% discount they give you on most, but not all purchases. After saying that, I tend to frequent the store after 6pm when its lovely and quiet but the downside is that the check-outs in use are somewhat limited.

I don't mind B&Q wednesday shopping (when I'm not going fishing) as I seem to bump into quite a few people from my generation,

 

I should add that I apologise if the bump is excessive

 

 

 

Getting old is much better than the alternative, realising you're getting old is when you want to read the paper but look for you glasses before looking for the paper, its also when you move the leg winder to get the drill for the corner steadies :lol:

 

Another one that makes you realise is when the kids start calling you mr, you just get over that then you get the envelope with the poo sampling kit :(

I too take sandwiches but I have to say last year we used the big Wetherspoons and it was excellent and not expensive

I thought they only go Wednesdays so they feel young against the BnQ staff.

I am just very grateful to be this age, and very very quickly many who poke fun and resentment at us will pray to be the same.

Hopefully its all just harmless fun surely?

 

Certainly a mix of ages on the few rallies we have been on which is nice to see but I think we have quite a large active CC centre where we are which I guess keeps new blood (like us I guess) coming in and through
