No, I haven't read that particular book [Old Before My Time], but I worked most of my working life for the Social Security Administration in the United States interviewing old and disabled people by the hundreds long before I would have been considered old by most people. I took their claims for benefits and input the notices of their deaths into the computer. I saw sometimes too many of their problems and shortcomings. I was often frustrated with the ones whose intent was to get something for nothing and on the other hand with the system which made it almost impossible at times for me to help those who really desperately needed help. There are most always two sides to any issue. Too many people are unwilling or unable to see the other guy's point of view. As to older people having all of the time in the world, I could write a book on that subject myself based on my own personal experiences, but I won't write it on this post. I will say that often there is also lack of patience on the other side because young people don't realize what is necessary to communicate with some older folks. It is most definitely a two-way street.
