Posted in: Caregiver arrested over sexual assault, death of 80-year-old woman in nursing home See in context

My mother was in a nursing home until her death at age 80 so naturally I am horrified to hear of this. If you have no sense of honor or decency, you have nothing.

Posted in: Woman outwits phone scammer pretending to be her son See in context

I would say this to the caller:

"I don't care if you're my son or a complete stranger since my answer is the same. In this house, money flows one way--from the young to the old--and NO other way! So go out there and make some money!"

I hope there's a special place reserved in hell for those who kill people who are weaker than them. You won't get any respect from me.

Posted in: Why some seniors fly into a rage at convenience stores and hospitals See in context

I am 67 and I find myself to be a lot more humble than I was decades ago. I have arthritis in my hands but I try to do things quickly so that people don't have to wait on me. If I hadn't become the pinnacle of society, I have never seen the inside of a jail and at least try to live my days quietly and without being a burden to others.

Posted in: Man arrested after assaulting visitor to nextdoor apartment for being noisy See in context

I sympathize with both sides. My advise is to invest in a pair of high quality headphones. It is infinitely preferable to fighting your neighbors. I have done so for the past 40 years.

Posted in: Japanese hospital worker infected with coronavirus after 2 vaccine shots See in context

I got my Pfizer vaccination on March 25 and am scheduled to take the 2nd one on April 15. Also I had absolutely no complications, it was the most painful shot I've ever experienced, perhaps due to the skill of the shot-giver. Never mind, it takes more than a painful vaccination to kill me.

Posted in: Life sentence upheld for man over 2017 murder of 9-year-old Vietnamese girl See in context

Whether premeditated or at the spur of the moment, what does it matter? The daughter is dead at the tender age of 9 even though she's done nothing wrong.
