    i work in a rehab hospital for the elderly. Met a war vet today from the dday landings. What a fucking legend! When he told me he used to be a marine, I said " you a bit of a tough fella then?". He replied. " You wouldn't think it now". As i was wiping his arse and helping him wash. Poor bastard. I nearly choked. I told him that getting old was inevitable and that he would always be a marine. He gave me a little smile and flexed his old biceps at me and said, " still the boy!"
    Fucking love my job.
    Be nice to the oldies peeps, some of em are the shizzle!

    unbelievable stories mate. They come from a different world to what we know. Life is hard enuff. When you meet someone who has done 85 years and still has their heads switched on, fucking respect.
