They need to start playing the rap music really loudly.

Seniors don't like the rap music.

NFA: LordZorch: While in some cultures this is perfectly normal and acceptable behavior, it isn't in most US locations.  I remember having to toss out church groups that would take over the pizzeria I worked at for hours and not spend $40 between the 50 of them.

A couple weeks ago I had my car's transmission serviced.  While waiting I walked to a nearby Dunkin Donuts.  I ordered a breakfast sandwich and sat down.  There was a group of 7 or 8 retirees (all men).  Each had only a small coffee in front of them.  They shouted and raved about Obama, calling him every imaginable racial epithet.   All shouted of course.  The N word was used at least once a minute.  No one other than myself sat down to eat.  I finally got so annoyed with their ignorance that I chose to go out into the cold rather then listen to their hatred.  They just said the most ridiculous things, none of with was based in reality.  One man shouted that Obama refused to speak with congress and every time congress asked him to speak with them, he refused and dared them to impeach him.  He added that congress was a bunch of cowards because they wouldn't take him up on his dare.  It was one ridiculous claim after another, like a contest of who could tell the greatest Obama lie.  Of course every sentence contained a very loud F-bomb or the N word or something like that.

Yet, the business owner did nothing.

Additional comment:  I have access to a printer which makes labels like bumper stickers.  I've thought of going back there and telling them that there is a new political movement to oust congress and impeach Obama.  The new political party is called The Lemon Party.  I thought it would be hilarious to then hand out bumper stickers saying Proud Member of The Lemon Party.

Rip out the seating and put in standing height tables.  Make it a standing dining room for a few weeks (or months, or however long it takes).  When their habits finally change, switch back.

Badgerlad: GORDON: I see old people in different McD's frequently during the day, sitting in the booths and drinking their free refills coffee for hours.

Last cruise ship I was on, you could not get a seat in the comedy club because the old people would fill the dark, air conditioned room from dawn until dusk, never leaving, catching all 5 shows, not paying attention to them.

Complaining about old people on a cruise ship is a bit like hanging around a sewage treatmant plant complaining about the smell of shiat, isn't it?

Making an observation is not complaining.

NutWrench: A truck in front of me had a bumper sticker, featuring an upside-down American flag and a caption which assured the world that the sticker would be removed once that "socialist" had been removed from office.

I remember thinking, "Socialist? He's not even a liberal."

At this point, any politician who doesn't want to take us back to the 19th century qualifies as an extreme left hippie neo-liberal.

RumsfeldsReplacement: I'd really really LIKE to think I'm not at all racist, but Goddamn if the Koreans in New York aren't just the worst.

Depends on the origin. If they are young and from Seoul or a major city, they are pretty decent, and do a better job integrating into mainstream culture better than their peers from mainland China.

The elderly who are fresh off the rice fields have zero ability to function as part of a civilized society are impossible to deal with. Its as if they had no training on being a human. This is across the board for all east asian origins. And if they arent at McDonalds, they are walking around looking for bottles and cans.

I think it's more a old man problem in general not just one race.

I had a friend who worked at Coco's as a server. She usually worked mornings and had the same problems. One old guy would come in everyday get a cup of coffee no food and sit reading newspapers for hours. He'd get pissed and yell if his cup wasn't refilled the second it got down to half. She run around and fill his cup for hours and he'd leave a nickel or a dime on the table as a tip. I witness his behavior one day while eating there and while talking to her made a comment just loud enough for him to hear. "Cheap a**holes making demands and not tipping their waitress should be careful their next cup isn't half piss." Don't know if it helped I felt better and she had a good laugh.

If you're going to be a pain in the a** just stay home.

The taxpayer subsidizes McDonald's profits so might as well make them into senior centers.

waterrockets: Sounds like it's time for a modern rock theme for that McDonalds. Strobes and loud music. Maybe replace all seating with bolted stools.

Some sort of....Rock 'n Roll McDonald's?

Nadie_AZ: Too bad. I see nothing wrong with hanging out and socializing.

Read TFA.  It explains exactly what is wrong in this particular case.
