I’ve always wondered a little about the stories of older folks getting “senile.” One of my theories is that younger people just don’t understand how hard it can be to keep track of which decade is current. When one person doesn’t understand the source of another person’s confusion, it is often labeled.
- If you are younger and confused, it is called stupidity by those with the advantage of more years of experience.
- If you are older and confused, you are called senile by those with the advantage of less to keep track of.
But, since one person’s confusion is often another’s entertainment, I still go out in public and end up with situations like I did at D&B Supply a couple weeks ago on Senior Discount Tuesday….
