it doesn't mean they should
at least not on my time, they need to fit these people with radar
remember that Father Ted episode that was based on Night of the Living Dead where all the grannies invade the house?

No manners!" but it seems the courtesy is only extended one way and old people can do whatever the fuck they like.
