Not everyone ages as gracefully as Queen Elizabeth or Sophia Loren. Judging by the men in the hopefully fictitious story below, there are certain things that come with age that are not as welcome as wisdom.
Three senior men start a conversation at the hospital. None of them were ill, they were just in for routine check-ups.
“Sixty is the worst age to be,” said the 60-year-old man. “You always feel like you have to pee and most of the time you stand there and nothing comes out.”
“Ah, that’s nothing,” said the 70-year-old. “When you’re seventy, you don’t have a bowel movement any more. You take laxatives, eat bran, sit on the toilet all day and nothing’ comes out! It's the worst.”

“Actually,” said the 80-year -old, “Eighty is the worst age of all.”
“Do you have trouble peeing, too?” asked the 60-year old.
“No, I pee every morning at 6:00. I pee like a racehorse on a flat rock; no problem at all.”
“So, do you have a problem with your bowel movement?” asked the 70-year-old.
“No, Sir, I have one every morning at 6:30, like clockwork.”
Exasperated, the 60-year-old said, “You pee every morning at 6:00 and go regularly every morning at 6:30. So what’s so bad about being 80?”

“I don’t wake up until 7:00.”
Well, that's clearly a problem! Share this funny story with your friends to remind them about what to expect with old age!
for old LGBT people, SAGE, laid out plans for a unique housing project for the aged LGBT community, but not everyone approved.
Manhattan’s very first LGBT housing for the elderly would be a milestone for the community, but residents in the area have raised protests against it.
The "Elizabeth Street Garden," a favorite of the locals, will have to be cleared off to make the homes and people in the area are not happy about this.
With the list growing longer of people who want to move into the project, the unexpected objection posed by Manhattan residents could sadly pose a serious threat to the entire thing.
