It's often hard to get young people to do age compliance shops. Many of them don't want to "rat" someone out or get someone in trouble because they didn't get carded. I went with my stepdaughter to do those tobacco compliance shops when she was a teenager and she only did 4 of them before cancelling the rest. Even though the money was better than her minimum wage job and I drove her around to do them, she just felt terrible about it.
Everyone that sold to my son got fired. Sorry not sorry. They all were male as well.@JASFLALMT wrote:
She's a really cute girl and the young male sales associates were so glassy-eyed and giddy that they didn't card her. They got reprimanded for sure, if not fired.
My mother was at home, cooking her own meals, gardening, etc, until 72 hours before she passed at age 84 from cancer. (No symptoms until it was too late. But, also, no pain until the very, very last when the residential hospice angels cared for her so tenderly.)
I am familiar with different homes, having put my sister in a private one that I evaluated. I have done many assisted living homes, am familiar with the Jewish home here in the Valley and know many that sold their homes, to go in, the cost is now $3500 for a room. I'm not ready and like to be with the diversity of age, not wheelchairs. Some are happy with being cared for, I love to cook and not a fan (at this time). Independence has been my middle name, take that away and I lose my freedom, will go if I have to, not because I want to. I walk with many younger than myself, climb my three levels without a problem, I know this will change, but I still have a lot of living to do. People there tend not to complain, they adjust and I know are well cared for, but.....only oneself knows what they are comfortable with, only people that aren't there recommend it. Sore subject for me.,,,my daughter and I both feel, if I went in I'd go downhill quickly.
That's so amazing.
My mom went to Morocco and slept in her first tent out in the dessert at 90. At 95 we went to Disneyland and she went on about 80% of the rides and loved it.
