A 60-Year-Old Claims ‘Sixty Is the Worst Age to Be’

Growing older is something most of us never look forward to. As we age, we begin to lose much of our physical appeal, and worse, we start suffering from all kinds of health issues. Suddenly the joints such as our knees and elbows we always relied upon without a thought become unreliable, painful, and slow. We begin to think slower in many cases, and new technology escapes our comprehension. And perhaps the worst thing is dealing with younger folks who can be impatient, condescending, and even rude. In this story, a 60-year-old man explains the woes of being sixty to a group of older men. However, he soon learns why he should thank his lucky stars!

“You always feel like you have to pee. And most of the time, you stand at the toilet and nothing comes out!”[1]

“Ah, that’s nothin’,” said the 70-year-old. “When you’re seventy, you can’t even crap anymore. You take laxatives, then you sit on the toilet all day waiting for the arrival and nothin’ comes out!”

“Actually,” said the 80-year-old, “80 is the worst age of all!”

“Do you have trouble peeing too?” asked the 60-year-old.

“No, not really. I pee every morning at 6:00. I pee like a racehorse on a flat rock; no problem at all.”

“Do you have trouble crapping?” asked the 70-year-old.

“No, I crap every morning at 6:30 and no laxatives, no waiting needed, come 6.30 it’s all out there by itself loose and fine.”

With great exasperation, the 60-year-old said, “Let me get this straight. You pee every morning at 6:00 and crap every morning at 6:30.

So what’s so tough about being 80?”

” I don’t wake up until 7:00!”
