Hi ,
It looks like you're using an ad blocker.



The revenue generated from the adverts on the site is a critical part of our funding - and it's because of these ads that I can offer the site for free. But using the site for free AND blocking the ads doesn't feel like a great thing to do, which is why this box is so large and inconvenient. Some sites will completely block your access, but I'm not doing that - I'm appealing to your good nature instead. Did you know that you can allow ads for specific sites, whilst still blocking them on others?

Thanks,
Ian Williams aka Fetch

The teenage barista at Costa offered to carry my tray to the table for me. It only had two cups of coffee on it...

I equally get worried when people offer seats (happened a few times in Oz), but I'll happily take a 'senior discount' when offered - and sometimes I'll ask.

I got offered a seat all the time in Vancouver, but the average age of the population there appears to be about 15.

Standing in Oxford Street earlier, noticing that virtually everyone else there was younger than me. I felt old watching young couples in their thirties going about their lives.

Huh. Someone offered me a seat on the bus last week. I thought, but did not say, "when I get too old for running ultras, kid".

Not a senior moment as such, but two or three times a week i run about 2 miles down to get my paper and do some shopping. As this often involves large bags of cheap fruit from the market stall (today 12 of the plastic boxes of blueberries for £1), i get the bus back (thank you oap bus pass). Showing my pass to the driver whilst wearing running shorts and carrying a rucksack and two bags of fruit gets the looks from other passengers that imply that i am having a senior moment, especially when it 1 or 2 degrees.
