elderly people

What is it with elderly people that once they reach the 80+ mark, they stop giving a darn. Nothing and no one scares them. They don't hesitate to tell you how they feel and what they think about you? I grandmother goes in on both my mother and my uncle and occasionally me. When my mother tried to get her to take her medicine, she told my mother she has a mouth like an alligator.

My grandma (God rest her soul) used to be like that. When you buy her something instead of saying thank you, she will ask for a complementary item. You bought bread, no butter or Milo to go with it?

I guess its because they have been there and done that. And besides no one can really tell them off - all because of respect for elders. And I think now the mark has shifted from 80+ to 65+ lol.

I do look forward to getting old. Things like etiquette and political correctness will be out the window.
