This.
And because "old people" have had to deal with far more many dickheads than the "young people".
Its why I have the "I don't give a fuck anymore" or "I don't give a fuck what anyone thinks" attitude these days.

Those of us who can see the impending doom have either gone crazy or just accepted it.

Old people are stuck in the past. They can't handle change and are incapable of adapting to the times so they get angry.
I have nothing important to say

I would think being closer to death and having physical ailments would play some part to say the least.

Just haven't figured it out yet.

Anger adversely affects our relationships, job, health, and eats into our joy. All the while it is a complete waste of time and energy because it accomplishes nothing. Anger is like drinking poison and wishing the other person would die. There are much better ways to go through life than being filled with anger.

As another one of those old people, I find myself amused by the antics of others far more often than angry at them.

Too many people, old and young, thinking they've invented something new in human interaction and/or experience. It's fun to watch though...

Is this some kind of joke?

I can refer you right now to countless blogs authored by young people.

Angry as fuk about nothing.
Like because somebody made a movie so bad they had to write an essay to rant about it.

I saw it, if you really want an answer as to why young people are so angry. It's because every slightly negative thing is brand new to them, so there's no frame of reference.

I find it ironic that people are getting angry in this thread. Anyway, you get chill old peeps. It's just the angry ones that stick out. The chill ones just lay back and are content with life. The angry ones are just disapproving of things in general, or just angry people, I guess.

C-C-C-C-COMBOBREAKER!

This is something I've had to keep in check quite often. Literature always reminds me that modern humans didn't invent social/interpersonal interactions, we've just come to understand them using different (and more specific) terms.


On old(er) people: either got their shit together or not. The nots are usually angry about something.

Maybe the old people are tired of hearing the young-uns whining about how shitty everything is. It is all relative, IMO.

New firefighters don't understand why the old salts are always complaining about the newbs. the old salts are always wondering why the newbs constantly bitch and moan about how the old salts "Don't Know Shit" when the newbs have no experience.

Older people rely more upon their experiences when they are faces with a situation, often they are able to deal with that situation because they have faced it before, while younger people seem to put more stock in information about how to deal with a certain situation, and try to deal with it from that direction.

Problem is that if you don't have the experience, no matter how well you think you are doing you will screw something up because you did not see it coming. The next time you are in the same situation you will have learned from your experience and will take actions that reflect it.

Summation: Old people mad because they have the experience and have already made the same mistakes; they usually know how to do it right. Or better.

Young people mad because they discount experience and put their faith solely upon the education, forgetting that experiences were what shaped that education.

And they don't want to wait for the experience to help them get where they think they should be, they just want to get there because they think they are entitled to be there.

I could be wrong and this only reflects one aspect of the angry old person/ young person.

Its all because of those [insert people you don't like] and their stupid [insert political party or ideology you don't like]
#38
They were always like that, brain damage/changes has caused some personality and/or mood changes, young people fucking suck as a collective body, deal with it, we do, I imagine they're bored out their fucking skulls if they haven't died of drug overdose at that point in their lives, so they're likely sober.

I don't think all old people are mean, not by a long shot, but for some of them it's not even their fault, they've regressed.
