For any of you who are not aware of the term greysplaining is when somebody older than you tries to tell you something and since you already know everything there’s no way that anything that they have to say can be relevant.

I have certainly in my time accused my elders of this or at least put up patiently with it.

I have apparently arrived at the age where everything I say is greysplaining to somebody. Even people who I had previously thought were bright enough could benefit from somebody else’s experience. It would be easy to be irritated at being ignored, but I actually find it sort of amusing. I know what that experience costs, and anybody not bright enough to learn from somebody else will pay that price themselves. And I am fine with that. I may even stick around and help pick up the pieces. Actually no I won’t I don’t care that much.
