I love it the first nine or ten times I hear the story, after that, not so much. : )
I worked for a few years as a medical transport driver. I've gotten some interesting stories and met some amazing people. One of the most interesting...?<br />
A man who just turned 103 years old a few months ago. He built the electronic harness for the atom bomb used in Hiroshima. He's still sharp as a tack. ;)
I absolutely enjoy this. The elderly have so much history and great stories. My Grandfather simply thrives in this light (story telling).<br />
His recollections of serving our country are marvelous. Tales from ba<x>se to the Korean War. He is simply the easiest person to listen to...
When i was 16 i knew an 84 year old fella in our local pub who loved telling his stories. He started working on the Liverpool docks back in 1917. Completely different world.
Loove it! I often talk with my grandpa about when he was younger and about the war, the germans in norway and everything. He has told me about some of my family in America and he's uncle in NY that he once visited during the war.
yes I used too all the time from my grandma that was a long time ago though
I do. I used to work at a nursing home, and my favorite times were when the patients would talk about their lives growing up. I loved to dally in certain patients rooms, knowing they needed someone to talk to, and I was happy to be that person. I say to my younger friends "If you get an afternoon, sit and listen to an old person. It will make you thankful for what we have now."
sure, but i'll soon be one of the elderly, and then i won't be interested any more
Yes, old people are so cute!
Yes, love it, always did even when I was a kid.
