I was at the game. Lovely day. When it was over, we stood up but couldn’t go anywhere because the crowd was just in gridlock. Old bastard beside me said, “excuse me.” I’m like what?  He says, “if you’re not leaving yet, can you let us through.”  I said, “are you stupid in the head?”

Stupid old people.

People lack situational awareness.  It's annoying.

Beating Baylor even in a sloppy game, is a good thing.  I'll take it.

Now's a good time to have a bye week.

A W is a W.  And a good team gets around the loss of a key player, as Texas did yesterday.  So, nice work Horns.

He didn't say the other guy was older.
I often come across people 10 years my junior that look easily 10 years my senior.

Was the game any easier to watch in person? ESPN was showing the "Charlie Brewer's Dad and Commercials" show.

The games are always better in person because of the way young ladies dress nowadays.

And on the bright side, every time I got thirsty, a sweaty young fellow was walking up the aisleway with a box on his head, selling water and beer.  So I never had to leave my seat until it was over.

Now as to whether or not the old guy beside me was younger or older than me, I don't know.  I am getting rather long in the tooth myself.  But I like to think I still don't possess that ugly, privileged "me first" attitude that a lot of older people develop.

Lots of kids (eg people under 30) possess it too, but you can almost excuse them because they haven't been taught right and maybe they'll outgrow it.

But it's really unsightly in adults who should know better, but you see it a lot.  It's kind of like an air of unreasonable expectations that says to hell with everybody else.  

The guy was in a crowd of 90,000 people and he imagined he shouldn't have to wait in queue with everybody else.

Just crazy.  It's a deterioration of the mind.  A senility.   I don't care whether a person is 9 or 90, if they can play well with others, they're welcome to participate.  If they can't, they need to stay home.

Yeah, my pet peeve these days is people who get on airplanes with half their belongings in over sized backpacks and carryons, and they come waddling down the compressed aisles swinging all this gear around, without regard to how many people they’re smacking along the way.  Being on the tall side, I always sit in aisle seats, and I usually sit toward the front, so I get the full brunt of their collective disregard.

Ultimately this is all thanks to deregulating the airlines and letting them pack us into their planes like sardines, so the bigger context is a societal disregard for people.  The inability to show common decency for others works at multiple levels.

I hear ya, Cousin Fred.

I nearly always check my bag so I can be unencumbered on a flight - but I'm like the only one.  Not long ago, I did have to fly out for a little three day trip so I packed a smaller carry-on but my first flight was so late that when I finally got the connecting flight they said there was no overhead storage left so I had to check my little carry-on bag.  Best laid plans of mice and men. 

What galls me if when you're on a short flight and the guy in front of you has to lay his seat back like he's flying to China in first class.  Oftentimes I'll look across the plane and the only person in the entire plane feeling the need to recline his seat is the guy in front of me.

So I spend the flight repeatedly jabbing my knee into the back of his seat.

Yeah, and then the flip side are those people behind you who feel like the (upright, not leaned) back of your seat is their property.  When they get up to go to the BR, instead of managing to find their own sense of balance in their own space, they pull down on the seat back to pull themselves up, usually both coming and going.  And then they’re often kicking the back of the seat, and putting stuff in and out of the pockets, etc.

And then laterally there are the folks who think they have sole possession of the arm rests, and sometimes even put their elbows into my seat space.  Those don’t stay there long as I make sure to claim it back, but it’s just all needless encroachment when it happens.

flying sucks bad enough, but then there are those folks that want to go through airports in France, just to look around

What about the line jumpers in planes?

Generally, planes empty out from front to back.  It takes time.  You're in the back, biding your time, waiting your turn, and there's always that one guy who is too inconsiderate to wait his turn so he jumps up from his seat further back and weasels past five or six people who he ought to wait on, right before they stand up, just because he thinks that getting ahead of five or six people will make such a huge difference in his schedule.

Oh yeah those guys suck.  And they usually step on your foot or bang your leg or arm with their bag etc as they make their move.  And without apology.  There’s a phrase in Spanish my mother in law always says which is “sin verguenza” which means “without embarrassment” or “shameless”, and that applies to these types.

My first flight was as a five year old, going from Seattle to Anchorage where we lived for two years while my dear father was avoiding Vietnam, er I mean, serving in the Public Health Service as a young physician stationed at Elmendorf AFB.

So exciting, it was.  The airline (TWA maybe?) gave my brother and me little flying wings, to commemorate the trip, and I seem remember all sorts of other airline swag that we kept for years, might still have in a box somewhere, as memorabilia.  Such a thrill to fly, back then.

It's not just the armrest people try to claim, but I find one of the other huge annoyances is the "manspreading" where legs and/or feet are also invading what little seat space I have on an airplane. 
I can may be understand if someone is extra tall and has physical issues keeping the legs straight in between the seats, but very rarely is the person next to me much taller than I am and trying to starfish out in the seat.

When someone is crowding my seat on an airplane, or a train, or whatever, I've found that being direct is the best approach.  I'm fairly non-confrontational, but when it comes to my personal space, I don't put up with crap like that.

I hear you Erin.  Here is kind of interesting article on it - turns out in Spain they're beginning to try to put a stop to it:
https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation-now/2017/06/09/manspreading-public-bus-signs-tell-men-keep-legs-together/383735001/
That clip ends on an interesting psychological aspect about people (mainly guys) feeling "empowered" by taking up more space.  Kind of interesting and revolting at the same time.

Cousin Fred, Junior has finally joined us older fellows in that stage of life where technology is a somewhat random, mysterious and dumbfounding adventure.

Yep, he’s on his way to old fogey-hood.  Much older now than we were when we all started talking on cnn together.

So speaking mysterious tech, my 15 year old just got me set up on Snapchat.  That’s kind of fun.  You post stuff and people read your message, photo, meme or gif, etc, and then 10 seconds later it disappears, like the intro tape on mission impossible.  It’s kind of like the message equivalent of a one night stand in a city you leave before dawn never to be seen again, a midnight rider.  Like that U2 song unknown caller.  Love those lyrics.

You golderned idgits, I'm a computer engineer and programmer, and I'm now in marketing for one of the largest high tech hardware manufacturers in the world.  

Just because I loathe technology, doesn't mean I don't understand it.
