Something old people today will never understand

Something old people today will never understand
Kit's thread was funny but then I became sad as reality dawned on me. (Actually, I fell asleep). The modern world is whizzing past me at a rate of knots.

As a middleage (or older) bloke, I cannot grasp the following:

How to wear my pants below my bum without them falling off Dunno
(Sometimes I walk out of the toilet and forget to pull them back up, but that's an honest mistake)

I have no idea what a hashtag or a tweet is. And you know what? I think I don't give a shit anyway.
Why do I want more internet "friends" when I rarely catch up with the real ones I have now? Dunno

When did talking in rhyme with background electronic noises become music? Dunno

Why do I need a fitbit when just waking up in the morning is a miraculous achievement! Now, physically getting out of bed is another matter, of course!

Why can't the young little shits be more respectful and just stay off my lawn!

Cranky

What else ya got...?

I think I do pretty well for an older guy. I can usually relate to the younger generations, because my mind does not quite age as my body does. Maybe I will simply forever be mentally sixteen. *shrugs*

But one of the things you mentioned I do agree with, and that is the rap scene. It simply never will be considered music as far as I am concerned.

Going to a concert and watching it thru your phone.

THIS is one of my triggers.  You're at a fucking LIVE show and you opt to watch it through a 5 inch screen.

I must confess though, sometimes at the footy, I catch myself watching most of the game on the big screen if I have shit seats.
Then I think to myself: I could have stayed home and done the same Dunno

I can't even stand people who have their phones turned on during concerts.

"Taking pictures eh? Videoing it so you can enjoy it again eh? I guess you don't think it's actually worth being in the moment then?"

They don't know what they're missing.

Because they're missing it.

Modern dancing. "You call that dancing? No, what we did in my day was called dancing. You're just having a seizure on the dance floor."

Signing something with my finger. That's no where near my signature and not repeatable. If challenged I could easily deny it.
