There are many elderly people that call millenials arrogant, selfish, rude among other things. But I wonder that of they see the same things in themselves. Yes, there are rude millenials. The excuses that I have heard from the elderly is that they have been through the Great Depression, the second World War and many other things so they have the right. They might have gone through those things but there is no excuse. The Baby Boomers and later generations have been put through a massive recession, major job losses, an unnecessary war and things still are not as good as they were in the 90's. With how long people are living today, many of today's seniors have it pretty good. Between their pension plans and Social Security, that's a whole lot more than I can expect when I am old and looking at retirement. Gone are the days where pensions were prevalent and good. Gone are the days where you retired and got a gold watch. My 88 year-old grandma went back to work at 45 for the airlines, took early retirement at 62 and gets at least $3,000 a month and her expenses are low. Some seniors have gotten more out of Medicare an Social Security than they have put in. My dad has given me some sound advice to stick with my job, even though it sucks because I have a pension plan because many places don't offer those and he is nervous about his retirement and he has a pension plan too. He is 67 and hasn't retired yet! I'm just really annoyed right now. A coworker, whose earliest memories was the bombing of London said something that did make me angry. She said besides the bombing of London, she was the daughter of a politician and she has seen poverty and what it does to people and I never know what I am talking about since I live in "such a nice house". My retort was that she might have been the daughter of a politician, she was only trotted out when it was election season, then back to boarding school. My family didn't always have a nice house since we were almost homeless when there was a strike at my dad's workplace. The company wanted 18 hour days, 7 days a week, pay cuts and health insurance increases and a couple things more. I remember being bullied horribly because I got free lunches at school and my parents couldn't afford a lot of food to feed the family let alone shoes and clothes for my sister and I.
