I’d like to call up someone in authority to report what’s going on — but the telephone company is in on the conspiracy too: They’ve printed the phone books in such small type that no one could ever find a number in there!
All I can do is pass along this warning: We are under attack! Unless something drastic happens pretty soon, everyone will have to suffer these awful indignities.
Aids Warning ...
Senior citizens are the nation’s leading carriers of aids: Hearing aids, band aids, roll aids, walking aids, medical aids, government aids and, most of all, monetary aids to their children.
No nursing home for us. We’ll be checking into a Holiday Inn!
Note: Although this has been around for a while given the fact that the costs mentioned have not been in effect for years. However, we think the concept might still be sound, that is assuming it ever was.
With the average cost for a nursing home care costing $188 per day, there is a better way when we get old and too feeble. “I’ve already checked on reservations at the Holiday Inn. For a combined long-term stay discount and senior discount, it’s $59.23 per night. Breakfast is included, and some have happy hours in the afternoon.
That leaves $128.77 a day for lunch and dinner in any restaurant we want, or room service, laundry, gratuities and special TV movies.
Plus, they provide a spa, swimming pool, a workout room, a lounge and washer-dryer, etc. Most have free toothpaste and razors, and all have free shampoo and soap. With just $5 worth of tips a day you’ll have the entire staff scrambling to help you. They treat you like a customer, not a patient.
There’s a city bus stop out front, and seniors ride free. The handicap bus will also pick you up (if you fake a decent limp). To meet other nice people, call a church bus on Sundays.
