My daughter came in my house the other day angry about an “old lady”. Apparently the “old lady” made a negative comment to my daughter in Wegmans as she was speaking to her son. My daughter took it personally…
As we age we tend not to be as sensitive to others and their opinions.
The next day I was in Pittsford at a red light. The “young lady” ahead of me was chatting up a storm with the car next to her… I could just about hear and see everything in her side view mirror. I wondered what was going to happen when the light turned green and the ” young lady” didn’t move… Well, I was right! Light terns green and nothing happened. One beep of my horn set off an array of hand gestures I’ve never even seen before! I of course waved back which pissed her off more and I just smiled. I was truly saddened by the inappropriate behavior of what I thought was a “young lady”. I couldn’t help but wonder what has happened to this younger generation. I Probably had the same thoughts every other generation has had!
Will generations ever bridge the gap?
Is it even possible?
Having life experience and wisdom as we age… and believing we know everything at our younger age (No one could have told me differently) makes bridging generations difficult!
I believe each generation must learn from the past generation and most importantly RESPECT one another!
The bridge starts with each one of Us…
