Not name calling: describing, identifying, diagnosing...

For the most part, we are caring, giving folks doing the best we can to make the most of our senior years. It’s a stressful time for all of us and we don’t all agree on every issue but let’s please stop the name calling — especially that particular one.
Does that mean we're no longer allowed to call entitled seniors entitled?

Maybe the PC police will make using the descriptor "entitled" a crime.

haha. No, they're welcome to join me anytime and often do. As well as sea turtles, dolphin, sting ray etc. Had a black tip at my 4 o'clock maybe 3 feet away just this past Tuesday evening. They're amazing animals and just beautiful. They are very curious, not aggressive.

It has more to do with the behavior then what's posted on here. As we grow, it will, most likely, get worse. The foursome standing next too each other, the people that can't count in the swimming pools, the battle over TP in the paper isle, the person that crowds you in a check out line because they are in a hurry...lot of examples where people's behavior identifies who they are, so it's not name calling, it's identifying behavior and previous posts have identified alternatives but, it's still the same. Pass the salt

Well, if the shoe fits then? If it don’t, then evident they are not directing to you.

When I think of myself, I am privileged by skin color ---white, and education, and having great parents. Many times those who are privileged, instead of being grateful for their privilege and giving to those in lesser circumstances, take the leap toward entitlement. Like "I deserve (whatever) because I have worked hard." However, what these folks do not acknowledge is the fact that being a male, white, heterosexual, Christian, tall, well educated has opened doors they knew nothing about.
