Overheard on a train tonight:

Blonde girl #1: There's, like, this really old guy at work. He's, like, 58 ...

Blonde girl #2: Why would anyone that old have a job?

Like obvs I'm too old to be travelling with proper commuters too and have to be offered a seat by, like a really young girl. And like I have to take it too because of the pity in her eyes. (PS I ran up the escalator past her, when we got off at the same station.)

Never turn down the offer of a seat, Lucille, it's the only advantage to having grey hair! I can only admire your ability to run up escalators!
