I might not be a spring chicken but listen here, sir!
Let me start from the horrible beginning.
How It Started
My daughter plays basketball for two different leagues, and her 7th-grade team was recognized at the Varsity basketball game last night. So, of course, we went. Plus, I wanted to do a little scouting to see what it would take for her to make the Varsity team as a Freshman.
Well, we walked in, and she immediately left me because, of course, she saw her group of friends, and they ran off together.
I walked into the gym and found a nice cozy seat on the bleachers where I could rest my back against the wall. Oh, Did I mention that my darn back went out on Sunday morning? Yeah, at 8:45 am, I lifted my leg a little too high to get over the bleachers at my daughter’s basketball game.
I digress; I am sitting there minding my own business, trying to watch the game, and out of nowhere, here comes this man approaching me. Well, he was trying to step past me. I heard him saying, “Excuse me,” to the high school kids. And I saw them get up from the bleachers so he could get passed.
Then that’s when it happened!
He leaned in towards me and said, “WE should always make the young kids get out of old people’s way, am I right.”
How it Ended
I literally gasped! I wanted to slap him and say, “WHO THE HELL ARE YA CALLING OLD YA Jack ass”?
As he stepped past me, my mind went straight to the boxes; you have to check for your correct age group. So I googled; What are the standard age/ demographic brackets? And there it was in black and white.
45-54 or better yet, the; Do you prefer not to answer box?
I need a minute to think this one over.
To be continued………………………………………In case your wondering I prefer not to tell you how many dots I used!
You could have chosen any blog to read, but you chose mine, and I’m honored!

Lol. That reminds me of the time I went to a back to school night for one my daughters in high school. I thought to myself, geez, why are all these grandparents here… are parents really that busy?
Then I realized they weren’t grandparents. They were the parents! People MY OWN AGE! 😳😳😳
Grandma/Grandpa mom and dads
Ouch! 😮 Did you accidentally spill some coffee over him later? 🤔😉
Oh how I wanted to😂
A guy clearly older than me offered me his seat on the bus the other day….I wasn’t sure how to take it…
Hopefully we can chalk that up to good manners!
That’s what my friends said…me…not so sure…
He needs to learn the dangers of age assumption.💕🤣🤣🤣💕
I know!!!!!! 😂😂
OMG! Of course need to learn… +Thank’s for share.
Have a lovely day!
Thank you 😊
You are welcome ☺️
Just accept it as gracious and let it roll. Politeness is often a thing of the past at times, so if that makes me ‘old’ fashioned, I will take it.
Definitely a thing of the past!
OMG Belladonna, you are too hilarious! Old folks? Really dude? Listen girlfriend, you ain’t the only one dealing with such questionable characters. Can’t wait to see Door #1… your revolving door of dots…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..! Let the church say AMEN! 🤣😜😱😝😂
😂😂 I tell ya some folks don’t have a lick of sense!
😂😁😜😱🤣 Girl, you got that one right!!!
Lol. Just wait until people treat you like your invisible.
Humans are the worst!
gotta love that inner voice though huh?….
Oh yes I do!!!
Over here the shop keepers address girls/ ladies by calling them Auntie or baji ( elder sister) as a sign of respect. When we were in med school, we found it hilarious that men supporting a white head would call 18 years old baji.
Oh wow!!!! They called 18 year olds that 😂
Yes, and it’s a part of Punjabi culture. I and my friends were from outside Lahore so it was a new thing for us. Now they call me auntie!!! 🤣😂
Ha! I am laughing here. You poor young thing!
😂 Thank you! Boy does that read well to me ♥️😍
Haha! In 1987, my wife and I saw U2 at the Fort Worth Convention Center (BB King opened). While we were waiting for the concert to begin, a couple of young guys walked by in front of us to get to their seats. I was 29 at the time, not even 30, yet! One of them said, “Excuse me, sir.” I was devastated. LOL!! “He called me sir,” I said to my wife. I mean, I do appreciate the courtesy, though.
LOLOLOL! Oh how that stings but you’re right atleast they were being respectful.
Lesson learned…he must never try😅😅
I know that’s right! LOL
