Hi, well I face my 60th in October. Good things about being 60 please?

I`ll start it off

  1. Prescriptions are free, so i won`t have to claim exemption from paying anymore.

Sorry hun, I forgot to wish you Happy Birthday.

I could blame my age…

luv Pollx

Getting old…at 30? Still, we feel how we feel, eh?

luv Pollx

Ok at 60…

  1. You can travel on the buses and underground free

  2. You can wear elasticated trousers without caring

Clare - 30 is half of 60…60 is the new 50…so you are actually only 25!

  1. You may be entitled to pension credit (don’t shout or the government take it off you or tax it) 5. If 4 applies you will be warmer in winter due to heating allowance
  1. You can go shopping only on pension day at a time most inconvenient for other people- dinner time is best.

Hey Poll at 45 I may also be in the ‘pension’ brigade. I am just looking at medical retirement and seeing if they will let me be pensioned off. Mike :slight_smile:

Now I’m depressed, most of the things on your list already apply to me Jen and I’m 41!!! (except 47) You will be able to get a tartan shopping trolley and ram it into people’s ankles on the bus.

Trolley is more effective in supermarket, or crossings road very, very, very slowly and being overtaken by a tortoise

Or even crossing road and dropping a scarf 1/2 way across, bending over to get it lowly and seeing you can’t reach
