I have a hard time dealing with mean old people. I don’t know if it is just me or if everyone is like this but it seems that when peers/younger folks are mean it rolls right off my back…but when it’s an old person? It hurts.
Is it like that for you too?
I think for me, it is at least in part because I miss “my” old people, grandparents, lost aunts and uncles, who are either dead, opted out of family connection, or have come down with some kind of dementia or maybe even Alzheimer’s. I think I am wishing that all people left over from the early Baby Boomers or the Greatest/Silent/Lucky Few generations are all nice like, well, like I remember them…guess that’s just my rose colored glasses.
