In my personal experience grandfathers tend to be rather intimidating so I'm not surprised. Be glad you're grandfather stood up for you.
Atleast they know how to respect elders. Plus in my opinion older people are always more intimadating. They got that look
95 - because your a toolbag who has a fucking terrible haircut and wear hollister. plus their intelligence and experience with the world is far more superior to yours and your "swag". Personally i respect them because of what my elders have done. My grandfather is one of the last mathmations(i dont know haow to spell it correctly) alive who have worked on the manhattan project. He worked hand on hand with Oppenheimer and Einstein. Allan Vorwald. look him up. 93 years old and still remembers in details what the first conputer looked like. and that is why i respect them.
I was simply asking a question, so why you feel the need to personally insult me I don't understand. Your grandfather sounds like a brilliant man, who achieved a great amount for both himself and humanity, therefore I respect him. What I don't respect is people who say we should respect our elders simply because they're older than us - respect is earned through experience, not granted with age.
By the people who spout 'respect your elders; they're older/wiser/more experienced etc' logic, I should respect a 70 year old man, even though his house is paid for by the government, he's never had a job and lives off the government, alcohol and drug addicted, beats his wife and children and occasionally rapes his teenage daughter, simply because he's older than me? Do you see my point?
I guess they're more respectful of elders? Or just the fact that old people don't have much to lose and are scary as hell sometimes. Especially with guns
Unlike you your grandfather is an auhoritative figure. They probably have father issues and crave attention from adults
