The Twelve Quotes of Bryant & May: No.10

Bryant and May


(Arthur Bryant on ageing)

On his way out, he stopped by the concession stand. ‘Can I take one of these?’ he asked, indicating the programmes. ‘I’m a pensioner.’

‘I’m afraid senior citizens have to pay just like everybody else,’ said the old lady behind the counter.

‘Well I’m also a police officer, so I’m taking one of those as evidence. Chuck it over, Gran.’

‘Charming.’ She reluctantly withdrew a copy and passed it to him. ‘Some of the older ladies in this cast remember the days when we had a nicer class of people in here.’

‘I’m sure you do, back in Victorian times.’ He turned to Ray. ‘See? With your unpleasant turn of mind you should think of enlisting in the force. The perks are great.’

    And they ask why the “seniors” are frequently feisty.
    A pair of “seniors” is bickering. He makes a remark about their ages and she takes exception to it and responds: “I can still pass for 65 and you… You can’t even pass.”
    Heads down gentlemen.

    Admin, sent you a Season’s Greetings email but had it returned as undeliverable – if you haven’t changed your email address, there’s a problem and I wanted to make you aware.

    Aging sucks, what with aches and pains where there didn’t even used to be places. But, as “they” say, it beats the alternative.
