holy shhhhhit, old people are a******, got yelled at by one for something I didn't even do, I tried to tell him I didn't but he was already convinced, on attack mode, so I was just like okay, fine, sorry, and shut the door. now he probably thought hes justified.

They're just acting on their pent up frustrations of life. You have to put up with so much shit and bite your tongue through life, that the older we get, the more we just don't give a fuck if we piss others off or not. Truth be told, they're more "real" than anyone else. There's something empowering about being who you are unapologetically.

Hey, YOU try being in pain every time you try to move, having to piss and / or shit in a bag, getting NO respect from anyone younger than you even though you've managed to live long enough to gain at least SOME wisdom, seeing the foolish antics of the "children" around them who won't slow down and LEARN something about life...

Believe me, once you hit 80 or so, you'll understand. I feel more sympathy for most of the elderly I know than I can ever explain.

Because the effects of drinking flouride for 40 years from tap water and baths being absorbed into the body has permanently damaged parts of there brain which has ruined there ability to fully rationalize situations and are unable to have thought out processes so they lash out at the slightest disturbances

"Old" people are from a different era. One with stricter morality for one. "Kids today" do not respect their elders. Wouldn't you be pissed too?

I don't know, my father (who lived to be 92) in his last days (last year or so) became a crochety old man that hated everything and everyone. He was never hostile with me but he would bitch about any and everything.
One thing I found that would calm him down would be to ask him about a specific time in his past - "hey pop, you remember when you won 200 dollars on that lottery ticket in 52 ? " and then you let them tell the story .......

For the same reason old people in nursing homes are perverted, cursing, grumpy, disguisting, filthy people...no all but most of them; they are possessed and have been most of their lives. The old body is just taken over pretty much and the only thing that comes out of them is vileness.

I am not joking this is what has happened to us as a people.

See? Idiot. They are in pain and everyone they care about is dead. They are sad and suffering. And the worst part is no one has any sympathy. Imagine having the worst of a cold for the rest of your life and your brothers and sisters keep dying and the only time you go out is to funerals and the doctor and pharmacy. it's fucking SAD, you idiots.

OP: Give the guy a break. He is old, alone and a crank. Try doing something nice...leave something with a little note on his front porch. Don't disturb him, just leave it. Coffee, donuts, I don't know, think of something. Just try it. It will work.

I used to live by the meanest old lady I have ever met. She would stand on the other side of our fence and throw rocks at it to get my dog to bark. One day I left her a potted mum w/a note. She stopped and sort of became civil.

Please. They had it good. At 37 everyone I care about is dead or dying. The 80-somethings should count their blessings. I know teenagers who have both parents dead of cancer and liver disease. I am sick of the elderly whinging and also expecting too much of their children who have kids of their own. STFU old people I say. They all know damn well they had it good, living through the depression or not. Kids still had intact families and small treasures. Today's adults have little to look forward to and worried parents at that.

Well, I'm sorry you had it bad. That doesn't mean everyone over a certain bracket deserves to suffer. That's a mean and bitter attitude and you're still relatively young.

Sometimes they just need love. I have seen what that does. But, sometimes their hearts are too bitter and not much can be done for them.

It's all a matter of attitude. No one HAS to be grouchy. I've had a hard go at life, am handicapped and still have a positive outlook and enjoy talking to young people. If you let circumstances get to you, you will never be positive or happy. You gotta "rise above"...
