    Stunning Senior Moment
    A very self-important college freshman attending a recent football game took it upon himself to explain to a senior citizen sitting next to him why it was impossible for the older generation to understand his generation.

    'You grew up in a different world, actually an almost primitive one,' the student said, loud enough for many of those nearby to hear. 'The young people of today are much more advanced than people your age. We grew up with television, jet planes, space travel, man walking on the moon and the internet. We have cell phones, nuclear energy, electric and hydrogen cars , computers, automated manufacturing, amazing technologies, ...and,' pausing to take another drink of beer.

    The senior took advantage of the break in the student's litany and said, 'You're right, son. We didn't have those things when we were young .... so we invented them. Now, you arrogant little shit, what are YOU doing for the next generation ?'

    The applause was resounding...

    I love senior citizens

    Oh Yes....
    Sounds exactly like something my Grandfather would say....

    As a matter of fact, I think he did more than a few times. Sure hope everyone would get to know someone like Grandad.
