Why do old people have to do their shopping at weekends?

They have the whole week to take care of that. They just slow things up for everyone else who has no choice but to do their shopping during weekends.

The que as the cafe was just lots of people with white hair also!

Please old people, the young just made a whole bunch of sacrifices for you, please show some consideration.

🤣🤣..are you for real??? Grow up!
TurtlePink · 22-25, F
Plus, YOU made the choice to go to the store today so what do YOU expect? It’s a public place with all kinds of people with different disabilities. So like why didn’t YOU use the online delivery or grocery pickup and gone on with your day if it’s such an inconvenience to shop with other people around? Are you a moron? It sounds like you are. And it sounds like a personal problem to me 🤷🏿‍♀️

[@526179,TurtlePink] report me for what? Yeah that's what I thought
ozgirl512 · 26-30, F
Yeah, you're right... After sacrificing their lives to give you the best start in life they can. They should now get out of the way
ozgirl512 · 26-30, F
[@398195,Lacemaker] Isn't it out duty to educate? ... Before giving them a slap around the ear?
Lacemaker · 41-45, F
[@516864,ozgirl512] It's [i]my[/i] duty to educate [i]my[/i] own kids.
I'll leave you to give her a wet fish around the ear. Tbh, it's a waste of a wet fish.....
Eddiesolds · 56-60, M
[@516864,ozgirl512] lmfao
Heartlander · 80-89, M
Hmmm??? I normally do curbside pickup, but after reading this I'll plan to do in-store shopping for next Saturday. And I'll bring my coinpurse do I can count out the exact bill,.
Heartlander · 80-89, M

:) absolutely ... and I'll make that request after he starts running them all up together. Like "Oh WAIT!, some of these are for my neighborhood and I need to run them up separately."
Neoerectus · 51-55, M
[@11509,Keepitsimple] Ask for a half dozen price checks also...
Heartlander · 80-89, M
[@634048,Neoerectus] Or bring coupons for another store.
Miram · 26-30, F
Every other day there is someone whining about "old people".

I'd like to see you all growing some balls and doing it in person instead

SledgeHammer · 41-45, M
[@542305,Miram] hahaha- yeee-yah!

That's proper!

[@542305,Miram] This place is full of Wienie-Whiners who like to suck & moan on every little thing.
MilitantIrishman · 26-30, M
Don't be such a damn fool. They have as much right to shop as you do.

Some day we'll be old too and I'll punch anyone who says that to me, whether I'm decrepit or not.
Echambers101 · 22-25, M
[@526179,TurtlePink] yeah depending on the situation I guess black queen
[@8731,MilitantIrishman] I can picture you at 80 years old chasing teens through Walmart on your handicap cart wildly swinging a "William Wallace sword"
cherokeepatti · 61-69, F
[@8731,MilitantIrishman] could be some of them depend on a relative to drive them to the store when the relative is off of work.
Redstar · 31-35, M
So what grand sacrifices have you made that you think gives you the right to tell people when they can and can't shop, just so you wont be slightly inconvenienced? Ever think that perhaps it's more convenient for them to do it on the weekends, or that like you, they have no choice?

I bet at least a few those older people have gone to war, putting their life on the line for the sake of the next generation. What have you done for them?
Budwick · 70-79, M
[@858854,IndigoSavage] [quote]A year of lockdown. Nuff said.

Oh no! Lock-down? Just like everyone else? You poor, pathetic thing!
[@841775,Budwick] She is not young - she is not even a she - does the image 55 year old man wearing a 30 year old bathrobe come to mind ? These posts are just being used to establish the image of being a young woman - then the sex talk usually follows.
[@858854,IndigoSavage] Lincoln once said "I'd rather be called a fool than open my mouth and remove all doubt." You should follow his advice.
Keepitsimple · 51-55, F
Please stay home and clean your room and let the productive working class people run their errands.

Wow, I hope this is a joke lol

OMG! No coffee?
Maybe Daddy can buy you a travel sippee cup and Mommy can make your coffee!

Excuse me?
How do you think you and those stores got here?
Learn patience and respect.
SledgeHammer · 41-45, M

We old people need time to find everything we need..
Believe me, if you see us on the the weekend, it's because we been there all week..!

Ya damn wipper-snapper
Miklee02 · 46-50, F
Some “old” people work during the week or have other obligations or maybe don’t have a ride to the store until the weekend.
I'm hoping you're just trolling for attention
Neoerectus · 51-55, M
They should be seen and not heard!!! 🙄

You are a privileged young thing, aren't you?

You lack the life experience to understand people have so many different life circumstances and do not lump together into convenient groups.
TurtlePink · 22-25, F
Why do you have to do your shopping when old people do their shopping? They were on this planet first, so pick a different day
Echambers101 · 22-25, M
[@526179,TurtlePink] I agree babe plus old people have more health issues than young people so some wouldn't be able to get to the store that particular day
Pinkstarburst · 51-55, F
They have nothing but time on their hands so they do it on purpose to annoy spoiled little whiny babies like you. I can’t wait to be a little old person!
Jean48 · 70-79, F
I shop online and it is delivered. But please remember older peopke have as much right to the planet as you do!
IndigoSavage · 18-21, F
[@1226902,Jean48] thank you for shopping online and making things better for everyone :)
Jean48 · 70-79, F
I do it because it’s so much easier for me! [@858854,IndigoSavage]
Degbeme · 61-69, M

Please remember you’re frustration when you are old and in a young person’s way on. Saturday morning.
IndigoSavage · 18-21, F
[@6912,Pinkstarburst] I won't go shopping on weekends when I'm old also they will have probably found a cure for oldness by then any way.

Maybe, as you grow older, your IQ will track your age. I wouldn't count on it, though.
Magenta · F
Privileged are we? Careful with that, you never know where or how you may end up in life.
nedkelly · M
Why do dumb arse young people think they can tell the older people when to shop.

Please old people, the young have made a NO sacrifices at all and WANT WANT EVERYTHING
[@5946,nedkelly] I think she just wants you out of the way while she is grocery shopping 🤷‍♂️
carpediem · 61-69, M
[@5946,nedkelly] As an employer, I'm more wary of kids with attitudes like the one. Imagine having someone like that work for you.
TurtlePink · 22-25, F
[@1077581,paperlace] stop 🤣
Helloeveryone · 56-60, F

DeluxedEdition · 22-25, F
wtf is wrong with sw today
[@25801,DeluxedEdition] same as any other day
TurtlePink · 22-25, F
That’s not very nice to say
Echambers101 · 22-25, M
[@526179,TurtlePink] yeah how can she be so cold
RoxClymer · 36-40, M
a lot of times the old people depend on the younger people to drive them to the store

and you wanto talk about sacrifices, my grandfather was in WWII, and my uncle was in Korea, both are injured veterans that needed help getting to the store
IndigoSavage · 18-21, F
[@575075,RoxClymer] non of the old people holding up everyones weekend in the UK actually did any war. They are all dead now. Pointless argument really.
Well, maybe if you work at it you can get yourself in some position of political power and sign legislation to herd all the old people into 'holiday camps' where they won't be in your way anymore.
Budwick · 70-79, M
Well, I got to hand it to you Savage,
You have managed to bring unity among a large group of people.
Your complaint seems to be universally disapproved!
ArtieKat · 61-69, M

This morning I was 3rd in the queue at Aldi at 9.50 (They don't open until 10.00am on Sunday) and was out by 10.12am). Beat that for speed lol

P.S Despite what my fellow boomers are saying, I don't basically disagree that people who are retired [i]do[/i] have all week to shop when those in full-time work don't have that luxury.

My gripe is against 2-parent families who take all the kids shopping with them, getting in everybody's way. 😡
butterfly1013 · 26-30, F
You're asking about the weekends... I'm wondering why my grandma shops at my mom's house everyday she taking something home that's not hers lol.. I don't think she can help it sometimes , but I swear she be taking pots and pans and everything. Her purse be full of stuff. She even took my mom's purse home one day thinking it was hers.

Edit: On another note Not getting or understand how old people are in your way. Just like you, they have a life and things to get also.
Echambers101 · 22-25, M
what are you talking about? old people sacrificed way more for us than we did for them
Heartlander · 80-89, M
This old person is already doing you a favor by [b][u]not[/u][/b] using those self-checkout contraptions.

:) If you think I'm slow at the check-out lines, wait until you see me try to check out fresh produce with one of those self-check contraptions.
Helloeveryone · 56-60, F
Many get paid on Fridays
Doomflower · 36-40, F
spjennifer · 56-60, T
Awww, the poor little girl had to wait a few minutes, what "sacrifices" did you have to make? Was the coffee shop all out of soy milk for your latte? You poor dear 😆
RocktheHouse · 36-40, M
[@605026,spjennifer] 😂 She probably is just upset at her sugar daddy because he wouldn't pay her car note.
spjennifer · 56-60, T
[@1164579,RocktheHouse] Or maybe because TikTok banned her? 😊
carpediem · 61-69, M

Thank you.
supersnipe · 61-69, M
Yes you have a point; now I don't work any more I can avoid peak hours altogether. But I was tending to avoid them anyway because of (but not only because of) Covid risk.
smiler2012 · 56-60, M
{@ndigosavage] well why should they not it is freedom of choice they might do one shop for the week
nedkelly · M
[@3749,smiler2012] The oldies will slow you get away
smiler2012 · 56-60, M
[@5946,nedkelly] what ned are you suggesting i would rob somebody because they are old and not got the facility to get away 😆 shame on you even scousers have a moral code you know
Lackwittyname · 46-50, M
Oh you are not in on it, it is a conspiracy that everyone is in on to make your life inconvenient and prevent you from getting coffee.
It takes them 5 days to arrive at the store
It's slow going walking on them walkers ya know
JustcallmeNameless · 31-35, F
You can shop during the week you're just too damn lazy
IndigoSavage · 18-21, F
[@585989,JustcallmeNameless] no not really, I'm working long hours. They don't.
JustcallmeNameless · 31-35, F
[@858854,IndigoSavage] you don't work 24 hours a day
Star1 · F
What! Of course old people didn't make any? & this is how you turn out?
Eddiesolds · 56-60, M
I take my mom during the least I know we're are innocent. Lmfao!
Missbess200 · 26-30, F
I can see how the old on this site can be butthurt. I comletely agree with you indigosavage.
