19 Old Folk Who Have Absolutely No Filter

| Right | November 14, 2022

Dear readers,

One of the benefits of growing older (so we’ve been told) is that with age comes a total lack of giving a crap about what others think of you, combined with the confidence of saying what you want when you want to. The stereotypical image of the sweet old granny is actually a clever disguise for a cunning and wizened soul which BS will bounce off of and back toward the poor fool who thought they could take an advantage of an “old-timer.”

We’ve rounded up nineteen stories from the Not Always Right archives about people of a certain age who have absolutely zero filter. They can be hilarious, shocking, and usually offensive, but never boring! Please enjoy!

Final warning: some of what these older folk say can be very offensive!
