Today, I was once again escorted out of a supermarket by a police officer. I must be the only 83-year-old who still has his marbles, but people always assume I am senile and wandering from a care center. FML

My great uncle has the same problem. He's 96 and still drives himself around. His only problem is he's got hearing problems, and he's loud as a result. But people just assume he's a crazy old man and kick him out of places, and call his kids to come get him. It's humiliating for him.

My grandpa is also 96--except he's no longer allowed to drive after he had a non-dangerous crash a few years ago. He also has hearing problems, but he's had those for years. Other than that, he's completely aware and awesome!

Okay, maybe maybe I can get the store or someone calling the police. Just to make sure. But WTF are the police doing actually escorting you out for being ...old? Is that actually a crime now? Did they ask you anything to see if you were coherent or just grab you?
