Nope I have normal straight long hair. No shaved sides, or weird bangs, or dye, or anything. I don't typically wear makeup and I don't have facial piercings or tattoos either. I could definitely see them being rude to clerks just because of age though.


Most the shit that you described there is just gay. Im glad you arnt stupid. I think we could get along.


"A man's hair should not be longer than his dick".



Personally mine isnt. But let the man live you dumb dumb.


I just imagine some older persons saying that.


Nah, im just a young canadian kid, who is also an idiot. Look at the hot or not post, to see me (I be the latest one) http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-30481/hot-or-not?pg=1733#56057683

They are all ex-hippies that have become the very same idiots that they protested against.

I think the reason why so many are rude is because they are nearing their (natural) deaths

Speaking as old and bitter myself, it's impatience with what "Ohh, you'll find out !", but they're not finding out soon enough--
Namely, that if you're 14-24, these years are your Wrong Years: You're wearing the wrong clothes, listening to the wrong music, going out for the wrong hair/tats/jewelry trends, hanging out with the wrong friends, and having the wrong ambitions about which directions to pursue your life--And thinking you're the New Generation of Rightness because you just found out something for the first time without doing the research, and believe that "Living for the moment" is somehow as cool as a Pepsi commercial, just because you're going out there with no backstory or Plan B...Them's hormones for ya.
And then 25 hits, the brain chemistry sorts itself out, something goes "snap", and you suddenly realize in detail HOW Wrong you were for the last ten years of your life, and try to force smiles whenever your friends or co-workers dig up photos from that big Saturday-night frat-bash in Freshman year when you thought you were the coolest guy in the world. Eat it, Bueller, you could have prevented it when you had the chance.

That's normally the process, but now we have things called "Millennials", that try to stall off the inevitable as long as possible by convincing themselves that every one else before them was wrong, because they voted for Reagan, watched sitcoms on TV with commercials, invested in mortgages to parasite on all the next generation's economic future, and had phones in their home they couldn't take with them.
On behalf of us old and bitter folks, we'd LIKE to tell you the quickest ways to get through the Wrong Years with as little and safe a Wrong margin as possible, but you might want to take down the spin-doctoring first. So, we just have to sit there, grit our teeth, and wait seven or eight years for Nature to take its course before we can prove our point. Ain't fun.

People's hormones are getting whacky in the midlife and they're too old to really care about appearances anymore. They are also suffering from more ailments, so they're more likely to be in a bad mood. I usually give older folks a pass.

If you act like that when you're 18, though. I will have no mercy and I'm telling you to leave.

I run into younger people all the time when I go out to eat at lunch time at fast food restaurants and I notice that most of the employees bend over backwards to be nice to me. (read that as being that I am a regular customer) I tend to always order the same thing so at some places, when the food service people see me coming they go ahead and fix what I want even before I order (or before the person in front of me finishes ordering )

As you get older you become more acquainted with certain behavior from certain groups:

babies/small children - prone to crying and/or running around the establishment
high school/college age - travel in packs and depending on the group, may be prone to noisiness
working age (20's - 50's) - are either on the job and under a time crunch or are with their family and trying to herd them here or there
older age - may be with smaller groups that they join at the establishment. may be tired of dealing with disruptive behavior in others. It is true that they may be also dealing with health issues such as cancer, heart problems, memory loss, etc. They may also talk louder if they have hearing loss. Remember, eventually everyone will also be older - including you

Not sure. But I expect people to be able to do their job right, if I am going to give them my money, bevause I have to do my job right to make my money.
I ordered $25 worth of food from a donut shop (6 people), and after about 20 minutes fighting with a girl who barely spoke english, I get to my stuff and it isn't there. Go in and inquire and she says not to worry, she didn't charge me for it. I tell her not to worry, she doesn't have to. Walked out and stopped at a convience store for my food.
Time is money. She wasted about 5 minutes of my time because I had to wait in line and ask about it, on top of the time it took to order in the first place. She lost my money because she was terrible at her job. If she can't speak english, maybe the drive through windkw is the wrong position.

Up here in the Northeast it tends to be the younger range that are the rude ones. In retail it was boys/men 13-30 and women 22-45 that tend to be the worst. I think it's different from region to region. It seems to just be a factor of the atmosphere we live in. I've most frequently experienced women DEMANDING we (my fellow employees and I) give them extra discounts or they'd report us to our supervisors/managers and put our jobs on the line. Luckily all we had to do while they were making a scene was point to the big mirror and tell them one security camera is right there behind it to make them leave the store. We've had the younger males cause all sorts of havoc while their friends TRIED to shoplift from us. Had women in their 30s-40s cause scenes because they thought they were too IMPORTANT to wait in long lines. It doesn't stop in retail though. At the hotel I worked for we had 40-ish men pop out nude on our housekeeping staff, 40-ish women calling up room service in the heat of the dinner rush to order a spring water due to the mini-bar one costing a whole 5 cents more and people actually steal the salt and pepper shakers, call up our manager and demand to have their meals comped due to not getting salt and pepper in with their meal (which said manager put on the tray himself helping out most times due to helping us run smoothly). Different types of people suck no matter where you are.

I work in a big store and hate it when customers either abandon their shopping carts or items they intended to buy, especially if these items might go bad in a few minutes.

Well they were born right after the great depression and being senile doesn't help your niceness level.

Ha ha nice post. Yeah i think that you're correct. Some are worse than others but that sounds pretty on point. I guess iam just about middle aged so iam caught in the middle of those two examples that you just gave. And yeah, getting older really is not much fun.
Getting wiser is good, but feeling tired and sore and impatient and seeing kids with ridiclious fashion sense and listening to garbage music and acting like they know it all when they haven't even lived in the real world yet can be really annoying lol.
I try to not forget that i was young once though. Apparently iam not old yet but i sure feel it.
Was refeshing last night though, a bunch of youngsters were at the pub that we were at (remember you can drink at 18 here) and they were playing good music! music from my era! (the 90's) that made me feel good. Gave me faith. ^^;

Coming from a retail job where I can see where your insurance comes from, I can readily tell you that the rudest people are those that get the most free stuff from the government. I almost never have problems with people who have private or job provided insurance. People on Medicare or Medicaid though think they are entitled to anything and everything right now, wrapped in a pretty box with a bow. They will yell at you for anything. They will complain about anything.

Previously people have pointed out that it is a sense of entitlement and I think that is it. These people are provided so much with minimal effort on their part that they develop an overblown sense of entitlement. And it really sucks because a good part of my paycheck goes to enabling these people to be rude to me.

My mom's bones are getting weak earlier and it puts her in a lot of pain and she can't do a lot by herself so she said this is probably why elderly people are cranky.
