Default Teach Your Children Well, and careful with us elders.

I know I shouldn’t have done this, but I am 73 years old and I was in the McDonald’s drive-through this morning and the young lady behind me leaned on her horn and started mouthing something because I was taking too long to place my order.

So when I got to the first window I paid for her order along with my own.

The cashier must have told her what I'd done because as we moved up she leaned out her window and waved to me and mouthed "Thank you.", obviously embarrassed that I had repaid her rudeness with kindness.

When I got to the second window I showed them both receipts and took her food too. Now she has to go back to the end of the queue and start all over again.

Don't blow your horn at old people, they have been around a long time

I've read this many times before and laughed each time.
Did you actually do this?

This is The Villages. It will still get posted once a month, for the next 20 years.

I'm at a loss why people think this is a venue to post the Internet Memes they find ... like no one on here has a computer and hasn't seen the same things, 10,000 times.

This forum is "Just For Fun ... Jokes, funny pictures and videos. ...". Maybe there's someone else who hasn't looked at all the Memes, over and over and over. What were you hoping to see here?

You're right. I'll need to figure out to how to make sure this thread doesn't show up on my feed.

Old age and treachery will always beat youth and exuberance.

The reason children are spoiled is because no one has the courage to spank grandma.

You took what could have been a wonderful lesson in kindness to making this young lady feel justified for her behavior. Hope it made you feel better.

And this is supposed to be funny? It sounds to me like responding to evil with evil.

This is too funny. Not the joke itself but everyone’s reactions to it.
