New survey claims 40 per cent of pensioners are upset by loud music in shops, clothing stores targeting younger customers and small type on forms.
Millions of pensioners claim they no longer feel at home in Britain because of the music played in high street shops, the clothing industry’s obsession with younger customers and the small type used on paper forms.
New research claimed that 40 per cent of OAPs felt the country had become a “playground for the young”. Loud music in shops is the biggest bug-bear of today’s over 65 year-olds with 61 per cent railing against the “muzak” they encounter on a trip to the high street.
Pensioners are being left behind by the modern world, with nobody paying attention to the needs of the elderly. Nobody, other than the company who paid for this article to make it into the Telegraph:
The research was commissioned by Barclays Bank, which is introducing “high visibility” debit cards and audio cash machines for customers with impaired or poor vison.
The typo on ‘vision’ there isn’t mine – it’s in the Telegraph original. Presumably it was copy-edited by someone of advanced years, what with nobody but Barclay’s ever having considered accessibility issues for the visually impaired prior to this article being published.
