When Boomers Go Boom

, , , , | Right | July 1, 2020

We are a married couple in our late twenties expecting our first child. While we’re standing in the return line, we overhear an older woman in her fifties being rude to the girl who is trying to help her. 

Rude Woman: “Do you know what you’re doing? Are you new here?”

Clerk: “No, ma’am, I am not new.”

Rude Woman: “Well, we’re going to sit here until you figure out how to do this. I want to order this item, at this price, and have it shipped.” 

We turn to each other and comment on how rude the woman is being and that she should just order the item online. Little do we know, the older man standing off to the side is the rude woman’s husband.

Rude Man: “We don’t want to order it online. Why don’t you just be patient and wait your turn?”

My Wife: “The issue isn’t us waiting in line, as we just walked up anyway, but that your wife is being very rude to the girl trying to help her.”

The man directs his next comments to me instead of my wife.

Rude Man: “Why don’t you just mind your own business, duuuuuude?” 

He sarcastically says the word “dude” as if I am some punk teenager disrespecting him.

Me: “I am minding my own business, duuuuude. Why don’t you tell your wife to be kind to the clerk?” 

The man starts acting as if he is going to brawl with me.

Me: “Really? What are you going to do about it?” 

While the rude man is backing down, it ends with my wife waving a diaper changing pad in front of us.

My Wife: “Okay, you two are done!”

The rude man cowered down, turned around, and ignored us for the rest of the time we were in line. Here we thought it was typical for older generations to reprimand younger generations to be courteous and show respect, not the other way around!
