I really don’t mean to be rude and disrespectable but sometimes I feel as if senior citizens feel entitled to certain things. In fact, I feel like they are the rude and disrespectful ones sometimes.
A few days ago, I was in the girl’s washroom. And because this was the girl’s washroom, there was a line. So like any other person would, I waited in the line.
A couple minutes pass and it’s (finally) my turn. But just when I turn to go, the woman behind me, who was in her sixties PUSHED past me and literally shoved me, shaking her head and muttering “kids these days”.
Normally, I would let it go and fume silently, but this time, something compelled me to say something. “I’m sorry but as you can see, there’s a line, and I was before you,” I said to her.
And what did she do next? She glared. She actually glared at me.
“It’s no surprise that you didn’t see me here. You teenagers are always on your phones!”
I wasn’t carrying a phone then. I don’t even own a phone.
“Where are your parents? They need to teach you some respect.”
She left before I could say anything else. So I ended up fuming silently.
Sorry miss, but I don’t show respect to people who don’t deserve it.
Of course, not all senior citizens are like this, but from what I experience, if you get them to open their mouths, they’re like this more often than not.
