Generation Gap

My sister and I went to our native village during summer vacation. We were very happy to see our grandparents, but we couldn’t understand the shocked look on their faces.

“What’s wrong?” I enquired.

“You kids these days dress so indecently”, he said, seeing our t-shirts and jeans.

Sigh. The generation gap is so frustrating.

For 3WW:Indecent,Understand,Frustrate

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. @kasabiangirl,hehe. is it? the look on their faces is amusing perhaps, but when it happens often, its frustrating i guess! thanks kg 🙂

  2. Sighs True… My mom yells at me.. but I am realizing now as everyone in my office likes ma dressing style 🙂 Presentable, simple and sweet 🙂 🙂 🙂 So, I don't really crib about this much 😛

  3. hmm thanfully my grandparents had/have no issues with dressing.. but it must be funny .. however you'd miss the oldies and their remarks if they arent around.. and then its a circle.. we'll be in their place some day 🙂

  4. i may as well act like your grandparents in my twilight years if i see my grand kids sporting hanging shirts and very fitting jeans…decency remains with the olds so try to understand them to bridge that gap… and everything will be fine, though the gap may be wide, he he he…me and my kids are also experiencing that chaos and it pertains to knowledge acquired,,…they would say my ideas are taboo and they would be smirking at me…what the hell are my kids thinking about their Mom? so taboo….????:)

  5. @aria,yeah.. it is funny at times.. still it is frustrating to hear it everytime u go to them!! yep. we'll be in their place someday too!!

  6. Well so very true….it exists and it always exist….and will do so forever…just maybe the gap will lessen with more understanding of each other perspectives :)Nice post 🙂

  7. Short, sweet, and oh so resonant 🙂 The older generation is almost always disapproving of the younger generation. heck, ~i~ find myself sniffing disapproval at "kids today" and I'm (only) in my mid-30s.Nice entry for 3WW 🙂
