    I want either the job, or this guy as my son when I'm old. Or both.

    I'd do it. The stories that our eldest generations have are amazing, and time is running out to hear them.

    And free beer to boot!

    News story one month later: Elderly Man Dies of Liver Failure, brought on by daily trips to local pub

    Actually doesn't sound too bad

    The story is really about a caring son trying to make things better for his father, which is cool. :)

    My first thought: ah sweet.

    My second thought: If I was the guy, how would I feel if I found out my 'friends' were actually just people being paid to spend time with me?

    Kinda reminds me of when I was younger, I was in some housing project, and I used to have casual chats every now and then with the project worker. I found later that she was logging her time talking with me as part of her paid working hours. All above board - it was part of her contract to spend time talking to people - but it put a different light in retrospect on our casual conversations.

    Never mind the nit-picking, I do appreciate what the son is doing, and I'd say the end justifies the means, just makes me squirm a little, but that's modern life.
