i think i know where this is going so lets begin...

Do old people DESERVE MORE respect then anyone else.?

You see it alot in different cultures and all but me personally i don't think so.

Im told i am insensitive some times or disrespectful but i treat them like everyone else.

When im in line and they are being slow... i get very impatient... When the old lady at the register is telling me her life story as im trying to pay... I get very impatient.

When the old guy in his car is taking forever to make that turn or going not even the speed limit but like 20 below.. I get very impatient.

When the old person is mystified by the electronic kiosk or something of that type and is creating a line.. I get very impatient.

Im an impatient person.. But rightfully so. I just dont like being in public at all. The flipside is that i dont like to inconvenience others either. Meaning i wont do any of the previous or so on cause i dont like bothering other people. I keep to myself and i keep out the way.

Some people think old people should be respected.. They should get extra care or get the good seats or get certain privileges. I dont agree... I agree that anyone mentally or physically disabled should get extra whatever but basing stuff like this on age is ridiculous.

Im not giving my seat up to some old person based on that fact that they look old. If they look ill and about to fall over.. sure.. but not cause they are old. They had there turn in life... they had a great run.. they made it to that old age of theirs.. I might die today maybe tomorrow. So im gonna live it up and not keep trying to make old peoples lives better.


I agree with the core idea that your argument presents, but to be fair most old people are physically and/or mentally handicapped, which is the reason people are told to give priority to them for seating as well as why they are able to get away with many of things you complained about in your argument. Old age gives open arms to many physical and mental handicaps, such as Alzheimer's or slight blindness, so when old people are going on a rant, or driving too slowly, its because they are handicapped. Basically I don't think old people are so much "respected" but rather they are just treated as people with disabilities with some extra privileges.

Some older people are super nice and are sometimes really fun to talk to

well it depends, they kind of irritate me but so do young people and middle aged people. Some are very nice but i'm pretty fed up of the one's round here.

I don't think I can recall any old people that I have met that are irresponsible. From money, health, or even family matters.
Well, some of them are kinda prick and callous. But, I don't live with them 24/7 so why do I care much about their unfavorable sides.

The elderly need to be respected and taken care off. Are they adorable and coherent? Not often. However, many had lived such full lives and deserve peace and comfort from the younger generations.
