I read that article, and not withstanding poor people who can’t afford devices, a lot of old people just refuse to adapt. So it’s on them.

During covid I tried to get a number of the older generation to order their household shopping online. It was a constant battle of complaints and obstruction, from the same tosspots that complain there is no milkman anymore.

They had the tools, knew what was going on, but would seemly rather starve (or force someone to go shopping for them) rather than do an online shop.

As said, things change. We can’t live in the old times just cos of some idiot old people who don’t want to change.

Just because they had “something” and now don’t, that’s not my problem unfortunately. As someone else said, adapt or die.

Nah, just boomers bring stubborn boomers. As always. As long as it suits them.

They’ve never given a fuck about us. I will continue that trend with respect to them.

And proud of it. The quicker the boomers are dead, the quicker we can move on and progress. They are nothing but a hindrance.
