Those old people are dickish, but why the hell would you keep on running a special like that when you don't have enough help?! That's nuts.

No clue.

Could it be because of all the money it makes?

TFA makes it seem like a combination of entitled boomers and FAFO.

/TFA is also published by the same group that publishes The Daily Mail, so make of that what you will.

If they're being verbally abusive while waiting  tell them they won't be seated, served, nor welcome for the foreseeable future

I do not understand why some people feel entitled to be nasty to waitstaff

Boomers are just a major PITA.

GOOD.

Yes, by all means, if you are sensitive to verbal abuse from thankless hordes of cantankerous malcontents biatching about petty inconveniences, targeting super specials at the elderly is a GREAT plan

I now doubt the existence of pensioners and specials.

I like this, but the very people who need to take that kind of message to heart are the ones who will find something else to occupy their eyes when they notice all the wordular shapes under the eye-catching part.

The Silver Surfers promotion proved so popular that it led to queues out of the door and a long wait.

Their new "Galactus--All You Can Eat" special should run a lot more smoothly.

The authors are very generous in calling it a "three course meal" when it's fish & chips and some soup.

So they bring you soup, and when you finish that, they bring you fish, and when you finish that they bring your chips.  Okay then.

As someone who's rapidly becoming an old codgers, I gotta say nothing makes me sadder than seeing an old person ignored because they are quiet, polite, and willing to wait.  And nothing makes me madder than seeing an entitled ass, especially an older one.

Age doesn't guarantee maturity.  Treat the large toddlers the way all toddlers deserve: act up and get one warning.  Continue, and lose all rights to the activity or experience.  Adults take disruptive children out of stores, restaurants, and other places all the time.  Keep kicking out the toddlers, and they will learn or starve.

Maybe the snappish seniors are impatient because they're all too aware that one thing they don't have much of is time.

Sounds about right for the boomer generation. It's always about them.
