740. Overheard on the bus

Lady I (61):  I'm a cleaner, but I do things MY way.  If I want to do a deep clean I do, if I want to give the place a lick and a promise I do - they respect it, because I can treat the house as if it was my own - well, you know what I mean.  I'm 61 and I work there because they don't give me orders, otherwise it would be a case of 'see you later alligator'.

Lady II (63):  I work too, 'cos I can't afford to live unless I work.  Anyway I'm only 63 and I'm young, I'm not going to go to an old people's home to scratch myself all day...

(Gustavo's comment:  I'd still be able to scratch myself at home, if it was me...)
