Telephone calls in senior citizen's typical schedule
To the editor:
Here's a typical day in the life of a senior citizen:
Call the funeral home and find out why the VA plaque that should have been on your husband's grave two months ago still isn't there.
Call the Division of Aging to try to find out some answers to the new senior prescription program when you were supposed to receive your card by July 1, but mine came Aug. 26.
Call the insurance company to find out why your homeowner's insurance premiums have doubled since last year.
Call the bank to find out why there's $14 taken out of your checking account with no explanation.
Call in the middle of the night so there's no waiting.
Go out to buy some Bayer P.M. so you can get a few hours of sleep and deal with the next day.
This is a true story, not fiction.
