Well that isn't generalising at all, is it? Because there aren't also teens, kids, young adults and other adults that could have said the exact same thing.
*rolls eyes*

I'll never understand why people think it's ok for older people to be assholes simply because they're old. (It reminds me of how the media treats Prince Phillip like he's a funny old man, even after he says racist and sexist things).
A person is a person, regardless of their age. And if they're being an asshole to you, you have every right to call them out for it.

22 - as the brain ages and slowly deteriorates, the part of your brain that filters out what you know is socially acceptable and what is not doesn't quite work, so old people aren't always aware what they're saying is really that inappropriate.

Old people say the darnest things!

23 - It's not so much that people think it's acceptable for old people to be assholes, it's just that nobody can really do anything to stop them or change their way of thinking whatsoever. If you try to call out an old person it just makes the situation worse haha.

I think that's pretty funny.. Perhaps she was right.. Or in her own sense (the old hag) perhaps thought there's no helping OP because she feels the need to wear make up, when really, OP could be the most beautiful girl and truly doesn't need makeup.. I'm sure there was some good in this elderly women's statement... (Or perhaps I just try to see the good side to everything, I could be completely wrong) don't feel too bad OP.

This same thing happened to me OP except it was a young guy. I'm not going to lie I cried but I was more upset that someone would actually say that to somebody! People are mean. Just try to forget about it!

Old people ALWAYS are assholes though. Not a single exception exists.

Not because they're bad people, but because civil rights moves forwards (mostly) and they don't stick with the program. So they're always saying things that just aren't ok anymore, at all, ever.

I agree.. Senile bats. My friends great grandmother yelled at her because she got her a chocolate cake instead of vanilla. So the old bat yelled at everyone saying she wants vanilla next year. I replied "If she lives another year". I'm not welcome at their house anymore.

#47 Nothing we say nowadays is ever original. Get over it. Everything we have said or say, someone before us has said it already. Whether it'd be in a book or a movie or someone you know. I am not too familiar with the Diary of a Wimpy Kid book. I merely said it because my uncle once said it to my grandmother when I was younger. Unless the Diary of a Wimpy Kid book was out in the 1990's then maybe my uncle copied them. I didn't even know there was a movie, all I know that it was a book.

It times like these, when you expect the kindness of strangers, and they turn the phrase on its head.

The world has its fair share of jerks and a-holes.
Why do people think they need to add to the ranks of the rude and unwanted?

Take solace in the thought that even if your face might not be naturally gorgeous (in her opinion), your boobs are still planted firmly ABOVE your knees and your lady-bits downstairs are probably in much better condition than hers.
