For too long those in short skirts have been telling us oldies we don't matter: 'you're out of touch! Get out of the way, grandma! The next generation is coming through.'
Well, enough is enough.

And no one minds if you forget (or pretend to forget) who you're talking to. Being rude has never been so easy - or liberating. And that's not all you can get away with now that you've seen it all (and done most of it) . . .
