The centuries’ dilemma

Damn right the old deserve to be taken care of, understood and showered with concern. But the moment any one of them begins to judge young adults by their millennial tendencies, they remove a certain portion of their entitlement to respect. Sure, the young do a shitload of stuff that don’t make sense to the old, and vice versa. But what would the elders be doing if they were brought up on the exact same 21st century circumstances?

The young may get irritated by the old, but they don’t judge their day-to-day choices or penalise them for behaving in a manner that’s been shaped by 20th century mores. Can the old say the same? Still wondering.
