3. Getting to the supermarket check out and then emptying the contents of
your wallet or purse onto the counter for the check out person to count
out

4. Wanting a tartan shopping trolley

5. Getting up at 5.30 every day for no reason

6. Queuing up with the other wrinklies for your pension

Unhappy Re: Reasons for not wanting to get old...

Prune juice, crappy cars, lots of doctors visits and having to take a battery of tablets, roll-on deoderant sticks, approaching the Hayflick limit...etc.
