sweet23_fml tells us more.
I think there was a bit of misunderstanding it was just my boss who thought that way, the ladies i work with are the most respectful and caring people i have ever met.

Why do people treat the elderly so horribly? They are people too; they've just experienced a LOT more than most.
I'll never forget when I was little I went to visit my friend's mother at her nursing home when I was little, and this poor old man was struggling to stand up and reach his walking frame. So the nurse walked over, yelled at him to hurry up, and physically pushed him out of his chair. He started crying because she hurt him, and she turned to face me and said "don't worry, he has dementia so it's not like he'll remember any of this." I was horrified. To this day, I wish I had said something. I know I was only a kid, but I wish I had told my parents or done something. I heard she ended up getting fired, but apparently that wasn't the worst she had done to the patients. Kinda makes Ben Stiller's character from Happy Gilmore look like a nice guy by comparison D:
That is absolutely terrible. I'm a CNA in a nursing home and a lot of our residents are great people who have lived wonderful lives and want nothing more than to die comfortably. People who get in the way of that deserve to be treated like crap when they can't wipe their own butt. (:
Wow I can't even believe someone would say something like that. The elderly are people too and deserve just as much respect or even more because they have lived such long lives and have so much experience to share with everyone. Your boss is seriously fucked up and must have some mental problems of his own to even say something so horrible. You should definitely report his rude disrespectful ass to his higher authority if you can. It's amazing that people actually think that way about the elderly. He does know HE will be elderly one day himself. What an idiot!
Well, that's true, but... You should start a petition with the people that stay there to get your job back!
Jees, I am new to FML and I really wanted my first couple of comments to be up, in front, not in back. And it only takes a couple of seconds to go from 1st comment to 35th. I just didn't know what to post. So, now I cannot edit my comment, and I think you misunderstood what I posted. I just tried to be a little funny. I didn't mean that he deserved losing his job. In fact, I think the boss should be fired, by OP...
They built this world to what it is today for us....why does nobody know the meaning of respect anymore? What a scummy boss...
You can't blame the elders for that. They don't control every move the US made. That's a bold fucking statement buddy. They fought in wars that changed the fucking world. My grandpa got shot 3 times in Korea, and it's his fault we're in debt? Get your head out your ass you ungrateful piece of shit.
In the US: The greatest percentage of prisioners are people with drug charges, the greater percentage of that is marijuana. The second greatest percent are people who were victims of the economy, like someone needed diapers so they held up a liquor store. They do their time with their head down and serve their sentence because they are moral people who made bad decisions.
