This video is quite cute, but on a serious side many elderly people are now being forced to go back to work because of the current economic situation. They can’t live on the pension as electricity, water, medical costs etc all keep going up. I don’t think governments do enough for the people who have worked hard all their lives, paid taxes, helped build the country, and a lot of them also fought for their countries. Not much gratitude there is there?

    my grandpa worked till 88, he was always happy and never felt useless which I believe helps us all feel better about ourself since most can’t handle feeling dependant ~what do you think?

      I think your grandpa is an inspiration to us all. If you work because you want to that is wonderful but I feel sorry for the poor pensioners who are forced to work because they can’t live on what the govenment gives them. A bit of respect for your elders should be a good motto for politicians to look at. We all get old one day if we are lucky. 🙂

        You’re right Judy, if they aren’t able to work, they shouldn’t be forced. That’s why we have family though, to care for our elderly as I do, and I’m disabled.

        Yes we should all care for our families but some people don’t have any or have lost touch with them etc or their families live on the other side of the world or the country etc so sad
