I know I'm getting old but...
Tuesday, May 31, 2011
What do 16-17yr olds (They were driving) get out of yelling rude and derogatory comments out their car window at a modestly dressed, ordinary looking 60 yr old woman, and hassling her by following her down the street. Their little iphones were out so I guess I'll be some joke on youtube tonight.
I'm getting on a bit - I'm not trying to pretend I'm a 'babe' by dressing like a teen.
I weigh more than 112lbs - I've had 4 children and lived a bit.
I wear glasses - So???? These things I know, I don't need to be told!
I don't remember cruising around picking on mothers and the elderly. I talked to my own 'kids' (now mid 20s) tonight and they said it wasn't something they did in their teens either.
Perhaps times have changed but there seems to be a nasty streak to do with not conforming to some sort of airbrushed media 'honey' whatever your age.
Whatever's wrong with ageing gracefully, looking pleasant, smart and tasteful?
And why are some of these kids so bored/disenchanted/plain rude that their 'kicks' are driving around, being lewd and picking on people?
There - rant over - but in fact I felt quite humiliated and saddened for the way some strands of 'society' (hah!) are going.
