A couple of punks were yelling at me the other day, saying “get the fuck outta here old man!”. I was about to pull out my .22 when the police escorted me out. I received a lifetime ban from the roller rink.
Of course this upset me. Apparently it’s no longer socially acceptable to “be intoxicated and yell obscenities at children in family establishments.”
But times are a-changin.
As a homeless Chinese man once told me: “The only constant in life is change.” And boy, don’t we know it…
Can’t even smoke at a gas pump anymore without someone bitching at me. And sexual harassment? My boss used to grope me all the time!
But those days are gone.
Perhaps there’s no such thing as “the good ole days” anyhow. Things don’t improve or get worse…they just change.
As I was told in Alcoholics Anonymous one time “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, and the courage to change the things I can”
