A Stunning Senior Moment
A self-important college freshmen walking along the beach took it upon himself to explain to a senior citizen resting on the steps 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 others to hear.
The GEN Y & Z grew up with:-
colour television, CABLE TV, APPLE TV NETFLIX, superfast jet planes, space travel, men walking on the moon, people having the ability to go to space themselves.
“We have nuclear energy, ships and cell phones, CABLE & NBN Internet, computers, tablets and ipads millions of apps, Cars that park and drive themselves and so much more.”
After a brief silence, the senior citizen responded as follows:
“You’re right son. We didn’t have those things when we were young, so we invented them.
Now, you arrogant child what are you doing for the next generation?”
Senior Moment (2)
An elderly couple had dinner at another couple’s house, and after eating, the wives left the table and went into the kitchen.
The two elderly gentlemen were talking, and one said, “Last night we went out to a new restaurant, and it was really great. I would recommend it very highly.”
The other man said, “What’s the name of the restaurant?”
The first man knits his brow in obvious concentration, and finally said to his companion, “Aahh, What is the name of that red flower you give to someone you love?
His friends replies, “A Carnation??”
“No. No. The other one” the man says.
His friend offers another suggestion, “The Poppy?”
“Nahhhh, growls the man. You know the one that is red and has thorns.”
His friend said, “Do you mean a rose?”
“Yes, Yes that’s it. Thank you!” the first man says.
He then turns toward the kitchen and yells, “Rose, what’s the name of that restaurant we went to last night?”
“Most people can look back over the years and identify a time and place at which their lives changed significantly. Whether by accident or design, these are the moments when because of a readiness within us and a collaboration with events occurring around us, we are forced to seriously reappraise ourselves and the conditions under which we live and to make certain choices that will affect the rest of our lives.” ~ Frederick F Flack
