Reality,I wonder!
Posted by Tanker-Builder on Friday, May 21, 2021 11:46 AM

Oh My! I must be getting old for sure.

        I was in our local Bucees gas Station and Store for coffee with a friend whom I always drive over there. He doesn't own a car and likes their Coffee and Sandwiches.

        Well, I always get the Coffee. When three, Ladies? walk by.They were wearing short Shorts so short the Bottom of their Bottom was showing on both sides! I dropped one of the coffees and had to clean up my mess.

     I wonder, Do Women not have any class anymore? They complain about men objectifying them as sex symbols. Then why dress that way? That is definitely going to get them the very attention they complain about!

     When I was younger My wife used to say " If you show off the merchaandise enough, someone's gonna Hurt You!" This comment from a woman that just really looked awesome in a small two piece bathing suit!

      But in town, the shorts at their shortest were mid thigh! I wonder why these folks think that's alright. I guess Modesty doesn't exist anymore ( Why, if'n My Daughters had ever dressed that way, Look out!)     Done with this Diatribe

O tempora, o mores!

("Oh, the times! Oh, the morals!" --  also translated "What times! What customs!"; from Cicero, Catilina I, 2)

The Roman writer Cicero was 'diatribing' the same beef in 50 B.C.

So tell me, TB...when was the last time you were compared to an ancient literary figure and philosopher??.....Wink

You want entertainment, drop by Walmart after 10PM, and wander around.

Hey! Youse makin fun o me, Greg?
            Nah! I just found it kind of disturbing in the format it was presented. In a store wher there a lot of children and their parents as well. Oh, I have NEVER been called either a Literary figger or a Philly sopher. LOL. LO.!L Literary Figure or Philosopher, hmm Gotta try it sometime. LOL.LOL.!

            Plus, I have to admit that even as an old man, Yes, I found it somewhat attractive, But c'mon I am 78, the younger fellas were walking into Displays and getting hit in the head by Beer Cooler doors watching these women!

      Pretty Legs are always a treat to look at. I will admit that. The other preview I didn't need. I don't think anyone else did either at 10 A.M. Some of the other women.Can you say,"If looks could Kill"? And they were accompanied by an equal amount of their own Male escorts!

Hey GoldHammer;

   I don't have to. I used to work there as senior Cashier at night, A Four Star Cashier at a five Star "Strip"? club! Omigosh, the memorys still haunt me when I go down certain aisles! I won't go into details, But, I couldn't believe what some of these folks were thinking. Or NOT?

Not a bit, sir.

I'm about a decade behind you age-wise, but I largely share your sentiments. Stuff you see any day at any mall that would have been in under-the-counter lingerie catalogs in ages past. It's bad enough on 'adults'...truly depressing when you see it on pre-teens! Indifferent

I would be a bald-faced liar if I said I'm bothered by looking at a woman whose shorts or top don't quite cover her bottom or breasts. My wife understands: she says I can look as long as I don't touch! 

In 1970, I began working for Canadian Press just a block away from Sparks Street near Parliament Hill. During the noon hour, Sparks Street became the habitat for scores of mini-skirted Parliament Hill receptionists and secretaries. Oh to be young and unmarried! Or, it sure is a good thing that I'm no longer young and unmarried!

Gregbale said, "It's bad enough on 'adults'...truly depressing when you see it on pre-teens!" I have a friend who taught shop classes in high school for several years. He said that it really bothered him, in "lecture" classes before doing shop work, when attractive, mini-skirted girls sat in the front row of desks revealing about as much of their legs as they could get away with. He was bothered, that is, until they opened they spoke!

Might be time to lay off the women.

35 % of American men are obese.

The Army now takes a few months to shape up volunteers before signing them. Serious shortage of recruits who can pass the physical.

Stop eating fast food.

Cook your own food at least four times a week.

A short walk is to get a slow cooker and just dump in whatever random veggies and proteins are around.

Big health hint: roast chickens at the grocery store. $ 10 buck meal, clean eating with a bag of frozen mixed veggies.

Ahhh me old mate TB. There's nothing more guaranteed to make a bloke feel old than a young woman with some bits on show! Like most males of our generation, (give or take 10 years), I have the moral outlook of my parents and my childhood, (the 50's), so much of what goes on today leaves me feeling very challenged.

There's stuff in movies, ad's, catalogues and TV that would once have been classified as porn, and don't get me started on the internet! Life is so different now, sometimes I wonder where the hell I am and who is driving. So much these days is about individual rights that I wonder where community has gone. But, as an old youthworker I am happy to say that most young people have their heads screwed on right and their core values are not so different than ours.

I long to live in a world where chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned
