Unless you are in some way ill, this is a shocking attitude to have. I'm rather horrified, to be perfectly blunt.
At the risk of sidetracking the thread again, why do you find it so? I can assure you my parents have no desire to sit about doing nothing. Being retired, they are able to do household tasks at a far more leisurely pace than they used to do. They do get plenty of time to relax - indeed, my dad rather more than he would like; he tends to be bored just sitting about.
Believe me, they'd soon let me know if they weren't happy with how things are.
