My elder brother and I grew up when my parents were very young and struggling and we did not have a lot. We both learned the value of hard work and paying for an education ourselves. Our youngest brother is 10 years younger than me and grew up after my parents made it big. He had everything and felt entitled to it. Like he would only buy clothes from expensive catalogues and stuff. When it came to work he thought he was the cat's meow.

One night we were all at my mom's having dinner and the youngest spouts off that this guy wants to hire him to run his company and my elder brother responded without hesitation "Yeah, right into the ground."

I've noticed that people over 65 are the most self-entitled, rude, sharp-tongued and sanctimonious people without a shadow of a doubt.

What specifically are they doing to treat you like a peer? IS this in specific situations?

I would like to think that people of multiple generations can be friends and not have to defer to someone once you are all adults.
