Old and entitled….

My family had a joke when I was little that when a person turned 80 that they immediately earned the “right” to say whatever they liked. This was our excuse for rude, blunt, hateful, and nasty things that angry “old people” say. Of course it was tongue in cheek and the mean things that came […]
