YET ANOTHER ‘BOOMER’ FINDING ISSUES WITH YOUNGER GENERATION

Why are some old people so mean

Advertisements

I was working from home today

So i walked down to a nearby coffee shop to buy my lunch.

The moment i speak to the auntie to place my order, she was already expressing her unhappiness in the way i talk(very random). I was sure that i was courteous, polite in the way i spoke.

Then she proceeded to say in hokkien that “kids nowadays dont work and only take money from parents”.

Then she proceeded to tout me in verbal ways, seemingly hoping i will respond back and start an argument with her.

Take note i have never talked to his auntie before

Me being me, stood calm and unresponsive to her instigation, paid money took my orders and left.

Auntie, my 1 month salary maybe can probably equate to half a year of your annual salary. I don’t take but give money to my parents so that they don’t need to around with people like you.

Not happy to work just stay at home and watch your tv or something.

Not every “kid” will tolerate your monkey behaviour like how some of us will.

Netizens’ comments

  • Why are young people nowadays so easily offended
  • A lot of these grumpy old people are bitter they wasted their younger years, so they vent their own unhappiness on the younger people. Serious. Unprovoked, a few frail old uncles have challenged me to a fight before. Can tell easily they have wasted their youth being fragile so they need to prove something and hope the younger person backs down out of “respect”. The only way to counter this type is to explain to them the truth of how they have wasted their lives and now can only be bitter, but you have your whole life ahead of you. They will shut up quickly.
  • Laugh at her while she continues to be bitter for her remaining years. Don’t need to waste time, energy and effort to retort or argue with her. You did great, order, pay and be on your merry way. Stay positive as the road is long for you, enjoy it in a good way.
  • Can relate. Also find myself wondering about this sometimes. Why are some old people so mean
  • Here we go. Complaint from a strawberry generation kid. Just try to be friendly and amicable kid. A little bit of kindness goes a long way
