There are some stereotypes that are harsh and rude. There are other stereotypes that exist for a reason. Old people complaining about prices falls into the second category. A couple of weeks ago I got on the bus and sat a couple of seats back from an elderly gentleman and a friend of his (whether a bus friend or an old friend it was unclear). He spent the entire bus ride griping about the cost of fruit. He is boycotting strawberries at the local supermarket. Apples are far more expensive these days than they used to be and they’ve gotten worse.
