11 Reasons Why Old People Are the Best

Is there a sub-group of our population that, as a whole, is cooler than old people? We think not. From their spunky attitudes to their (inexplicable) fascination with bridge, they epitomize the idea of being yourself. Here are our top 11 reasons why old people are the best.

1. They’re not afraid to tell you what they think.

2. They elevate every game they play, from bocce ball to video games, to bloodthirsty, gladiator-status competitions.

3. Their interactions with technology are hilarious.

4. They love watching you eat… and eat… and eat.

5. They’re full of wisdom.

6. They have stories about living through major world events, like World War II, the assination of JFK and the African-American Civil Rights movement.

7. You can find one-of-kind fashions in their closets.

8. They send the funniest texts… whether they’re trying to or not.

9. They have awesome facial hair.

10. It’s super fun watching them learn new tricks.

11. They may look sweet, but they’re full of surprises!
