Don't Like It
It hasn't happened for maybe a month on here, but it bothers me when it does. The touchy subject of my age. Well, not touchy exactly. I work with younger women, and love it, except when one of them takes it into her pretty but probably empty little head, to call me an old man. I'm 60, yeah, so what? I'm in damned good shape for my age, and the majority of people think that I'm in my 40s, which is still old for some of the empty-headed. Okay, if I'm older than you, mention it in passing, but don't get downright pissy about it. Don't make fun of me. I'm not making fun of you because your empty-headed. Let me reiterate. Just because someone is younger, I don't consider them stupid. Because I don't. But there are a few around. Not all older people are weak and senile. I know that I'm not. So, can we stop calling each other names and be adult about it all?
