Do you find that older people are more likely to accept suffering and inconvenience in their lives, and can you explain your reasoning?
I got a ranting email from a coworker who is about 20 years older than I am, and it was concerning my leaving my home in the hurricane and my parents willingness to stay put (for 5 days until they decided that a house that’s colder than the outdoors is not a house they wanted to stay in, so they joined me at a resort two states to the north). He said that the older generations blah blah blah, and the problem with us young people is that blah blah blah. (more about that rant in another Q).
