This morning I had the misfortune to be stuck in my Doctor's waiting room with an incredible winging old bag. This grey beast from the depths of hades waddled in like some farting weeble and let rip a tirade of abuse to random strangers largely about the decline in the quality of young peoples values, and the fact that people weren't as friendly as they used to be. The waiting room shifted from ass cheek to ass cheek uncomfortably avoiding eye contact in case she started to talk to them and unloaded her vile opinions in their direction. On the way back from the Doc's I popped into local (highly recommended) grocery emporium Thornes, to get some eggs, as I queued with the rest of the sane customers this midget silver haired fiend barged in front of me in the line, an action which seemed to me to say "screw you pall I am old, I will do what I like". You see this an actual fact, the majority of the elderly are down right rude (not middle aged people before you start leaving comments) , and despite what they would have you believe young people aren't. I am sure that I am not the only one that has been casually shopping in Tesco to have my ankles bashed in by some random old sow, in her attempt to get to the Raisin All Bran, not even a "kiss my ass" let alone a thank you. I am sure I am not the only one to be mown down on the pavements of this fine Burgh by a psychotic old cow with a determined look in her eye heading for the post office on pension day.
Another myth perpetuated by losers is that young peoples intelligence is declining at a rapid rate due to video games and junk food and "in their generation" it wouldn't have been allowed, they all ate like saints and played with wooden hoops and a stick. Exams are getting easier because young people are getting better grades. Children's brains are like blobs of useless flubber according to this myth. But guess what Children are actually getting cleverer, better nutrition, more advanced health care provision and revolutions in the teaching of children have led to steep increase in average intelligence since the 1950's. A significant minority of my parents generation were educationally sub-normal by modern standards, Forest Gump like thicko's with big opinions shuffling through existence with less intelligence than a steak and kidney pudding.
So do you know what - "Huzzah!!" for the young and "Boo" for the old.
Bye for now.
