Why do old people on here use youth as an insult?

"Well I wish I could be that age again, I would have done so much differently"... "I have wrinkles in places you'd never guess you could get them and my balls/tits hang down to my knees but haha you're 18-21 is your mummy going to tuck you in aww". It just frustrates me

Aww it must suck to be so young and dumb.

[@595492,Heartless] And I suppose you are a genius right?馃檮

[@686258,MissingLabel] hell of a lot smarter than you.
MissingLabel22-25, M
Sure you are. [b]I mean you've already expressed that you think age becomes intelligence as the years progress and assumed that you are smarter than me expressing that also[/b]. Genius. 馃し

It really is unfair to use your youth against you and attack you for problems that are perfectly valid at your stage of life.

I think the hostility derives from several sources, including jealousy, sadness, frustration and regret.

Just cut us some slack sonny. Growing old ain鈥檛 for sissies! 馃懙

I will say this, when you get to be my age, you may look back at your comment and say, "now I get it", but then again, you may not. Age brings experience, and experience (I hope) brings wisdom!

[@434129,Nytro44] I don't mean you specifically, I mean old people that behave like 8 year olds in a pretty disappointing way.

[@686258,MissingLabel] people of ALL ages act like 8 year olds at times. Everyone gets older....not everyone ' grows up'

Some of my closest friends here are much much younger than I. I haven't found a problem with them feeling I put them down....or vice versa
