I expected to qualify for an older person's rail card when I was 60 - this is what happened to TSH a few years ago. But now they are putting the age up gradually - I have no idea when it will happen for me.
People who are my age never 'came of age' - when we were 18, the age of majority was 21 and by the time we were 21, it had changed to 18. Now we are getting our bus passes and rail cards at 61 and a bit (or something like that). I wonder what it has done to us to miss out on TWO rites of passage.
