the less patience I have for crusty old buggers.
I realize there is an irony in this.
I hope I never become one.
I’m crusty now so maybe in the coming years it’ll flake off
I was born a 65 year old man....
At 71, I've lost patience with fools. And I find that my sons, 38 and 40, have less patience for me. Sometime in the recent past I must have crossed the line but looking back I can't find it.
Try 78, and still playing.
Maybe my patience will come back as I get older since I have nothing else to do.
The older you get, the less patience you have for anything...
I play guitar and bass with an 81 year old venue owner/band leader.
Personally, I intend to play/gig until my body won’t allow it, or the phone quits ringing.
I just turned 51.
I have my Junior Curmudgeon Card already certified.
I have patience for ignorance but not for arrogance.
I relate to everything that's been posted in this thread so far. Scary. I'm ONLY 20 years older than Fiesta Red.
Ha, ha. My phone quit ringing a couple of decades ago. That's why I had to start my own band and go out begging for gigs.
The older I get
the better I was !!!
I'm in my late 50's and the filter between my brain and mouth is getting thin. Ask me if I care.
The older I get I have more patience for people in general, much more. I have less patience for people who are inconsiderate, unkind, bullies and haven't any facts. My boys (2 out of 3 left) are clamoring for me to move closer and take a bigger part in my family.
I can consider myself inconsiderate, unkind, a bully and ignorant of facts each day. I can't wait to be closer to my kids. I'm crusty this is me. Hopefully I can be cured.....
it is cumulative.
I have a brother like that. His cumulative behavior has gotten him derision from pretty much everyone. It isn't 'one thing'.
I have always had more patience than most about almost everything, but this past year changed all that.
Life's too short to have patience anymore. Perhaps this feeling comes about because our bodies start to fail us.
Increasing isolation with increasing age leads to conviction in one's own perspective, with little opportunity to hear other points of view from entirely reasonable people you otherwise enjoy. Relying on the hyped sensationalism we call "news" fails because it is designed explicitly to raise our dander and get readership $$ for advertisements.
So, we "lose patience" because everyone is too lame to "see the obvious" -- which is, of course, our point of view.
I've always tried very hard to see the best in people and keep a positive outlook on life, the universe and everything.
However, the events of the last year or so have strained that outlook a great deal. I'll stop there...
