My Life My Opinion!

As I get older, it seems I have become less tolerant of many things.  It’s as if a switch was turned on when you hit 50 years of age that you have no control over.  As an example, how in the hell did it suddenly become OK for me to listen to elevator music in my car?  I just recently found this local station that plays old music like from the 40’s and also newer stuff that we would call “Muzak.”  I guess my days have become more and more hetic…phones ringing, constant flow of people, traffic, the thump thump thump from the car next to me.  Thumping the living daylights out of anyone that gets within 100 feet of it with its blaring thumping base speakers.  Hell, I didn’t even put the quarters in the machine and I got a free massage!

I guess “quiet / peaceful” is hard to come by these days if you live anywhere near a big city.  My generation of “Baby Boomers” kept asking for more more more, faster and faster and we got it.  Now that we got it, I want to get rid of it! How many of you feel the same way?  Maybe that’1s why some people get summer cabins/cottages to get away to.  I’ve been to a few of these “Summer Cabins,” they have their Direct TV, they have their internet, they have all the appliances.  All they are escaping to, is a view with all the noise!

I think I’m going to start a company to teach people how to disconnect.  I think it will be a booming business for all the “Baby Boomers.”
