Today I went to the grocery store.
“Totally boring”, you’re thinking.
Well, you’re mostly right.
It isn’t that exciting.
But it shouldn’t upset you either.
I am concerned about old people.
Not only am I concerned when I see an elderly lady or gentleman driving gaily about in their cars with no apparent awareness that there might be another car or two on the road,
But now, they’ve started treating younger people crappy.
TODAY for instance.
Mind you, I am an extremely polite person when I am addressing an older person, ESPECIALLY.
I did nothing to warrant this reaction.
I realize things like this happen.
Maybe she was having a bad day, maybe she’s in pain… troubled for some reason… I GET that.
But this was no isolated incident.
As I went on my way, trying to avoid this woman as well as I could given the fact that seemed to be appearing in every aisle I needed to be in,
Adequately blocking each and every one as she went,
Because you HAVE to be smack dab in the middle to find what you’re looking for,
I actually encountered about 5 more cases of angry geriatrics.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t like to be glared at.
I promise there was nothing even remotely offensive about my appearance,
And the babychild was actually being happy and cute.
So I’m at a loss.
Why are old people becoming so mean?
Granted, there are also a lot of very nice old people
But when you encounter a crew such as I did today,
It really seems to magnify the problem.
Here ends my rant.
Don’t become like them.
And if I start to, slap me.
-peace and love-
