Actually get on better w/ older people, always have done; on the whole they tend to share my interests a bit more. Some are very rude though. My Consort is in his 50s & talks slowly, & it's mostly the younger people who work here who seem to take less time w/ him. Maybe they think he's boring, haven't got the time to chat to him, etc. ….. well, they should make it.
We've a group of people who come in every month, inc. one 70 y/o who lends me her Pratchett collection, & before moving mum's friend lent me his Tull records. We still had a lot of the old-fashioned ways too.
