I Hate Old People

Posted by: Ms Ayain Ms Aya's Papers
Mood - Normal

Mood - Foul


I went over to my new house and it’s really near to completion! It’s possible that sheep will be moving out next week! (Rejoices)

I hope the next time I blog, it will be in the comfort of my new bedroom, surrounded with a lovely floral wallpaper~! (Laughs)

But I might not be able to blog next week because it’s going to take some time to set up the Internet and phone line. So I guess I better not let the blog be too idle, hence this entry.

Initially I thought of blogging a tribute to my current neighborhood and share with everyone good stories about my neighbors. Then again instead, I’m in quite a foul mood today and would like to vent my anger — about old people.

After this entry goes public, I can foresee that during my last day as a mortal — God is going to show me this entry and tell me this is why I’ll go to Hell. <_  _>lll

I can’t help it…I hate old people!

Old and wrinkly is fine. Overly talkative? That’s bearable. Forgetful? I can close one eye. Smelly? There’s perfume.

BUT — I can’t stand those who live in the past AND can’t stop condemning the current technology, methods and lifestyle!

Living in the past and disliking how technology helps the society is alright. Just shut up and stop forcing us to accept your opinions.

The major thing I hate about old people with this mentality is that they not only disagree but they force you to agree with them and worship their era. I don’t give a shit if they accept or put down my opinions however, they don’t have that neutral and understanding attitude. They always have to win!

And if their charisma can’t lead them to that cheap victory, they will start using their authority as a senior citizen that we youngsters should respect them no matter what shit comes out from their mouth.

Let’s take cellphones for an example. The elderly people that I know often talk trash about cellphones saying that young people spend too much time meddling with those little noisy bricks. I do agree that young people play with their cellphones too much that in times of family gatherings, they can’t stop smsing.

There was one commercial promoting Digi’s talk time which featured a family sitting at the dining table but instead of talking to one another, they were all talking on the phone, leaving the little girl who apparently has no phone, staring at her family members, feeling left out.

This is a very stupid commercial because it encourages people to spend more time talking to other people on the phone than your own family members. Furthermore, it’s rude to talk and play with the phone when eating with your family.

I understand and agree with the old folks that this is too much.

Then again, now that I think about it properly — I think I can understand why young people do that.

It’s because it’s difficult to talk to old people!

Everything you say, they will counter with their absolute experience and whatever you’ve been through is nothing compared to theirs. They don’t like to talk about NOW; they like to talk about BEFORE.

Even if they do speak about today, it’s just to condemn it.

You can’t voice your opinions because they think you’re too young (and dumb) to differentiate black from white and whether they are right or wrong, it doesn’t matter because you are half their age — you can’t say anything.

With that said, what’s there to talk? All you can do is listen.

But listening can pain your ears especially if you know what is right and wrong — in other words, think!

It’s like, “You’re wrong! It’s this! Not that!” but you can’t say it out because the old man is going to school you — which will pain your ears even more.

So what can you do when meeting them?

Play with your phone lo.

Pretend to be occupied so that you don’t have to talk or listen to their windbag of diarrhea lo.

I do that too. I would look at pictures of my Auwlithe because it’s so pleasant to look at him and think of him than listening to the old folks condemn about us young people. I rather let them believe I have no opinions of my own than to start a one-sided argument.

Speaking of one-sided, they are quite selfish. They will expect you to memorize all the things they like and hate but remember not your favorite things. When they do remember, they can’t exactly remember the name.

There are pros and cons to everything yet they keep stressing that their time was perfect and whatever they had were better. If so, why did they phase out then, dummy?

They want to say we are bad — the heck? In your time, people don’t commit crime at all?

You think you all so humble and simple? Please! Last time you all do bad things that people don’t even do now!

My mother told me stories of her childhood life and it shocked me to know that such things can happen. But I’ll save these stories for another time.

How about pedophiles? Old man’s crime.

One funny thing I find about this old folks is that — they talk trash about technology, and yet some of them uses high-tech gizmos.

If you bring their hypocrisy up to them, they would probably tell you, “Well, you don’t sell the manual thing anymore so I have no choice!”

True…And on they go with their complaints about how difficult today’s gadgets are.

It all the more proves this proverb to be correct: You can’t teach old dogs new tricks.

They just refuse to learn. And they will give all sorts of excuses not to learn. Eyesight problem, physical disabilities — Whatever.

They want to say we young people can’t do manual things? Screw that! We can still learn; we aren’t that stubborn!

Whereas you old folks, give you a basic cellphone — I tell you — how long only then can you start sending out text messages or punch in a phone number to make a call — to the right recipient.

If your eyes are fixed with laser surgery, would you try looking to read instead of asking other people to read for you?

You see, some old people stop trying. I don’t give a damn about this nor will I loose any respect for them but I get really pissed when they become so egoistic and stubborn.

So flabbergasting! The more I think about this the more angry I get. Sometimes when I have to talk to this kind of old people, I always tell myself it doesn’t matter what they say, just use mind over matter.

After all, they are going to die soon anyway.

Sheep is really fed up. There’s one person with this attitude that I have to deal with every single day!

I wish to rant more but I think it’s wise to stop here. No point complaining here because it won’t stop this person from tormenting me. I did tell the person about how I feel but that person refuses to budge. What to do? As I’ve been ranting, this is the main shitty attitude that I can’t stand from old people.


By the way while I was half way typing this entry, my house had a short circuit and there was no electricity for awhile.

Could it be? God was trying to tell me not to post this entry? That I should repent and retreat my thoughts?

[ . . . ]

Can’t be helped. This is the truth — I hate old people. Not all old folks for there are some whom I enjoy their companionship — but those as said above are the ones I despise!

Hello ! (yes I’m back from camp ~) ..

I must say , I like the way you put it . It is something “out of the box” .. technology definitely has its own pros and cons . However , we gotta keep moving on as new technologies arise – we have to be constantly learning

As there is saying “Life is a learning”

Anyways , you’re finally moving ! it great that you have a new fresh home . So when I come visiting .. I can get my own room ? ahahaa… =D

I’m happy that You , Auwilthe and Family are doing good .

i think they might have forgotten that the new medical technology is what is helping them keep alive longer also.

poor Sheep! it must be hard having to hear this kind of thing all day long! Sheep-ちゃん大変ですね...

i think last time pple’s life was probably more routine, like when they wake up every morning, the rest of the day is all doing pretty much the same things and chores as the day before, and the day after. so i guess they don’t like change? like sometimes i will grumble about the new malls that are always being built and rebuilt in singapore, because i miss the old places where i have memories with my friends.

the older generation tend to be very age-ist. like just because you are old (or for that matter male rather than female) they treat you more like a human rather than if you are young and female. of course there are exceptions, like my grandma who is a very sweet and ‘hip’ woman. like, while they do deserve respect because they are our elders, when they start demanding respect, it gets abit much for the younger ones to handle and instead the opposite happens!

notes to self for when i am the old one next time, the things that i should not do.

Dear Pix

Differences does not bother me much. It’s the forcing and overly bent on the matter that makes me angry.They are so one-sided and bias just because they are from that time, everything they had or been through was superior. Gah!


Dear Saru-chan

Okaeri, comrade!
I won’t say this is something out of the box, in fact — I think I’m being overly sensitive and petty that I should be ashamed of myself. (_ _)lll

Of course~ In the new house, we have a spare room~ That room has an emergency exit window so if you do not like my hospitality, feel free to climb out and leave any time~ (Laughs)


Dear Krayle-chan

Indeed! All the medication they are taking! Have some gratitude, will they!?


It has something to do with their routines, ne? They are unable to adapt to the current lifestyle. Furthermore, must be tough for them because they have lived a different life style before. All in all, they have experience in 2 types of era.

Sheep is trying to reason on their behalf so that sheep will not get mad and lose her patience. I wish they know how I feel so that they don’t make it difficult for me to endure them. (Sighs)

Krayle-chan, arigatou!

Dear Krayle-chan

Baa…Is that so..? I’ll kindly accept your happiness without retorting then. (Laughs)

Of course, I do try to divert the subject. I tried many ways to escape! (;__; )

But nothing seems to work. I guess when I’m with them, I’ll just stare at a spoon and try my luck bending it with my mind. I think it’s more amusing than listening to them. (x__x) Baa~

What I do, when my grandfather talks to me, is to nod, and make-believe you understand.

It comes in real handy, when you’re bullied by your other cousins or, maybe somebody wanted you to do some chores, and you don’t feel like it, and that particular grandfather is within seating range, that is when they back you up.

“Aw, don’t let this poor child help you. You’ve got legs and arms and hands, do it yourself!”


My idea is hilarious. xD

But, then again, I don’t mind old people, so….

I gues really pissed at old people to refuse to understand the concept of “stand by” on electrodomestic devices, and always turn off all plugs, even when there are no cables coming out of them. And people who pretend the old nokia phones are complicated. You turn it on, press four times the same button and you get to incoming messages. If you wanna call just press the number in. You know how to make a gourmet and the uses off all 7 types of forks and knives but you refuse to learn the two simplest concepts in the world. HOW HARD and HOW STUBBORN CAN YOU BE !!!
