Do you get tired of all the insults that fly around?

Asked by Dutchess_III (42446points) 1 month ago

Baby boomers insult the younger generation, the younger generation insults the boomers. It’s like everything has to carry some sort of insult.
I belong to a 70s page, and we were talking about jacks, the game. A boomer goes, “I wish I could find some REAL jacks, not like the ones they have now.”
Almost immediately I found her some REAL jacks on Amazon.
SMH.

I think I’m immune. I hear so many nasty people, in person or online, griping and insulting each other, that I just tune it out. It’s noise.

Life is too short to care about whiners.

I do, but its been around in some for decades. Back in the day the Oldsters used to trash the long hairs or hippies. The Beat Generation trashed the oldsters. I had a girlfriend in H.S. who called her parents dinosaurs, and so life goes.

Sadly, hostility toward the “other”, particularly if you’re threatened by them, is old as dirt.

Ya know…like the Boomers. ~

Yes, I do. As a country we are better than that. I sincerely hope it stops soon. Not holding my breath though.
