Just completed the annual online check and noticed it asked if we were over 76. What happens when we are? Why do they want to know?

They maybe want to get a care home organised for us nonnie! Or worse!

Oh kitty they would have a real job on their hands with me! Not going, stroppy old bat!

You can't do jury service at 76 or over. Stupid. Get more sense out of a 76 year old than some 18 year olds.

It used to be 18 - 70 but I think it has just been raised to 75.

If you're 76 or over, you're no longer eligible for jury service (jurors are selected from the electoral registers).

Thanks. Sounds right but not as much fun as kitty's suggestion!
