Old Peter

Happy Birthday, Trevor.

Becoming 65 you will sometimes be accused of being a grumpy old git.  As from now you are entitled to be one.

 

Becoming 65 you are entitled to park your car across two spaces so that it doesn't get a dent from some youngster who can open as door properly.

 

Becoming 65 you are entitled to carry a walking stick and prod things with it.

 

Becoming 65 you may get a pension from the Government.

 

Becoming 80 you will get a 25p pay increase from the Government.

 

Becoming 85 you are still pondering how to spend it.

 

Best Wishes, and have a good day, Trevor,

\peter,

 

Thank you , don;t have anything to do with governments , still seething that Tony Blair got the Peace award from GQ magazine, what next, the McCann's getting the baby sitter of the year award ?

 

I have also been grumpy for years, and another benefits of being a pensioner is that I no longer get the carers allowance for looking after the wife.

 

But must grumble,

 

ATB,

Thank you young man, no bus pass for me, owning a Jag and getting a bus pass is a bit like buying a dog and barking yourself !

Happy Birthday Trevor, hope you have a great day. I've had a letter from the Benefits Agency advising me that due to the change in the law I cannot now retire until I've reached the grand old age of 67. Fortunately or more Unfortunately due to a serious industrial accident many years ago I have been deemed by the Medical Professors as being 45% disabled therefore, I believe I can retire a little earlier on medical grounds and my Mine workers pension which came out when I reached the age of 50.

Kenny,

 

I've just had a letter saying that my pension is going to be means tested, and I will still have to pay council tax at the full rate (as do all pensioners I think) . They have also stopped my carer's allowance for looking after the wife who is mentally ill , as you can't claim it, and receive a pension .

 

Fills my heart with pride when I walk round town and see the work shy getting a free living !

 

But at least I have a Jaaaag !

Stan,

 

If you've been married for 55 years you have every right to grumble !

 

Not been on a bus for 25 years, and a train for 30 , not that there are any down here in the sticks anyhow.
