What Did The Years Teach You?

Age is no guarantee of wisdom. This has been made apparent to me recently. These conversations with persons over the age of 65 left me scratching my head -

Senior Female - "I'll vote for Trump, but he needs to settle down and act his age. And he needs to stop saying all these negative things about women!"

Me - "What has he said about women?"

SF - "Just mean things. But now, the media says he says racist things, but he doesn't. The media lies."

Me - "So when the media says Trump is a racist, they are lying, but when they say Trump says mean things about women they are telling the truth?"

SF - dumbfounded look.


Senior Male - "I believe of the two major candidates, Hillary would be less destructive to our way of life."

Me - "Sir, you were in the Army, correct? (He nods to the affirmative) I believe Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods might disagree if they were still alive to do so."

SM - dumbfounded look.


What about you? Any folks over 65 giving you crazy responses to the election?
