Once upon a time... Blah blah blah... tell me at WHAT age exactly does it happen, that yor parents start acting like they're your CHILDREN?  MAN, I knew it would happen one day, but I was kind of preparing myself for it to be when they turn 90 or something... My grandmother is 80, and still lives alone, runs her own errands, and is totally self sufficient.  So, why is it that my parents in their late 50's are incompetent?  Unable to pick up a phone and make a call, unless it's personal or to eachother? Unable to manage their own finances?  I do EVERYTHING short of wiping their bums.  You know, I think I'm READY for a change.
