Adults…

sometimes
I think that most adults
all still little kids
no matter their age
they rarely listen
to anyone else
some are still sore losers
and want to take their ball
and go home
there’s a lot of
whining
fighting
resentment
lack of responsibility
some protection
gang like groups
game playing
competition
sibling rivalry
and frustration
over who likes what woman
or man
it seems as if
for some
that becoming an adult
just means they
wear bigger sized clothing

    Couldn’t agree more. πŸ™‚
    or 😦
    I sometimes wonder: “is it just me?”. There is a growing childishness everywhere.

    • That is SO true. Fifty year old people are living with their parents! Kids want to live in the basement and play video games, rather than get a job and go out in the world. Actually, around here, some kids don’t even want to drive!!!!! It’s shocking, the way people are today. Their poor parents. Some kids are bringing their families home again, kids and all. I can’t imagine my kids doing that…not in a million years.

        Agreed. I think we were the last generation (though you are I think much younger than I am) to have been brought up a certain way. No way my kids would do that. Unless, of course for an emergency. A few weeks at the most. Neither you nor I would have dreamt of going home to Mom and Dad! Go to a shelter first! Anyway. Let’s hope it doesn’t get worse.
        Bon week-end Gigi.
        (Buon finale di settimana if you still speak a bit of Italian) πŸ˜‰

      • If you are older than I am, you were here when dinosaurs walked the earth. LOLOLOL My daughter wouldn’t do it either, And I would never have gone home. Actually, my mom told my husband she never wanted me back. As if I might have been a trading card. Hope it doesn’t get worse as well. I speak no Italian at all. My grandparents, who came from Sicily, never spoke Italian. Wouldn’t even talk about Italy. Not a word. My cousin and I know absolutely nothing about their lives. Way too late now

        A bit late indeed. I have digitalized all my parents’s pix from ’49 onward. (Well, actually since th 19th century) And I do regret not everyone’s name has been written under every picture. Too late to ask.
        That was tough form your mother? “No money back”? If I put that in a story no-one will believe me.
        I’m quite sure I am older than you. I’m from ’53.
        (Just after the dinosaurs disappeared)

        Take care Gigi.

      • Hahahahahahah, no I’m older, but I was an Only child who was not the favorite, believe me. I have written the names of people on the back of the pictures I have, and their relationship to my kids. I just don’t know if anyone will care. I didn’t, so I get it. Plus, I don’t even know if my grandparents had siblings. I don’t know a single thing about them.

        I know it’s hard to believe but nothing anyone ever said to me bothered me in the least. I drove my mom crazy. LOL My entire family wanted to build a statue of my husband in the park, just for living with me. They said that the time. They all felt sorry for him. They all though I was impossible and the funny thing is…I was the only one who was always happy, had a fantastic marriage and never stopped dancing.

        Finally found someone older? Allow me to bow to age and grace… πŸ˜‰
        You never know who will care about the “ancestors”. I know my kids don’t care about the family history, I didn’t care when my parents wrote it, but now I’m glad I have tons of documents, pictures, history. All in French. Have to translate it for the English branch of the family.
        If your grandparents were immigrants they might have come alone. And left family back there in Sicily.
        “Impossible” Hey! I don’t know you, you most certainly have a strong personality from what I can tell. You were happy? (And your husband too most certainly) And you never stopped dancing? It’s all that matters.
        Take care Gigi.

      • Yes, when we get older things can change and our interests are part of that. I think it’s wonderful that you have so much information. Maybe your family will be very interested in those things when they are older as well. I only have a picture or two and a few pieces of paper, one of which contains my grandfather’s real name. The only other thing I have is an ancient envelope with a return address I can’t read. My life was pretty much right out of The Godfather, only not nearly as friendly. I think my grandmother had the same lace curtains. πŸ™‚

      • equinoxio21 says:

        If you know your grandfather’s real name and hometown, you might ask (in Italian) for a birth certificate? Includes his parents?
        A Godfather childhood? Wow. You should write about it. (And I don’t recall the relationships being THAT friendly. πŸ™‚ Maybe that’s why your mother didn’t want you back? πŸ˜‰
        Now that I think about it I saw that movie (Première!) In Belo Horizonte, Brazil, in one of those old theatres/converted into cinemas. Subtitled in Portuguese. Quite an experience.
        I have an old postcard from a family member during WWI in Saloniki. I can read the first 3 lines but not the rest. The handwriting then was very different. If you like, send me a photo of the envelope. My mail is on my Gravatar. I’ll see if I can decipher something. No guarantee though. Cheers Gigi.

      • Hahahah…no, my mom just wanted me gone. I was too much for her. Between my horrible father and me, she was worn out. And if I can find the envelope I will take you up on your offer. Thank you. I haven’t seen it in years but I know I have it somewhere. Thank you again, that’s very kind of you. I remember seeing The Godfather on opening day. I just had a cast put on, up to my knee, after breaking my foot. I sat with my leg up on the arm rest in front of me (no one was sitting there, of course) during the movie because the doctor said that going to the movies right from the ER was not a good idea. So that’s what I did…I went right to the movies from the ER and it was great.

      • equinoxio21 says:

        That’s what rules are for. Bending. Sometimes. But with your foot up in the air, it’s all right. If you find the envelope, I’ll give a try. Bye now.

      • Thank you and rules are DEFINITELY for bending and breaking because they are always made by SOMEONE else, who usually has their own interests at hear.

        Politicians in particular? πŸ˜‰
