GETTING OLD SUCKS
(Overheard by the host stand)
Four elderly patrons approach the host stand and make a request,
“Can we get a table as closest to the bathroom as possible?”

Did they ask for something like toast and lukewarm milk? Oat bran?
Being an “old fart”, when you gotta go, you gotta go and you better not be too far away from a bathroom, unless you want “brown streaks” in your underware.
It gets even worse when you have to take two different fluid pills every day.
The worst seat on an airplane is next to the bathroom. When someone exits, you heard everything. On the last flight, my seatmate and I bet whether there was No. 1 or No. 2. Sounds are distinct and who won the bet was never contested.
Sodapop is a silent attacker.
