to me today, we were at the garden center looking for a plant.
I was asking her advice about how large the plant would get.
She said let me show you a large one in my yard. When we
got to it she said this plant is ten years old. I said no I don't
think I will be where I am now in ten years. She said well where
are you going to be in ten years? Then she looked at me
and ask how old are you.
Like a nut I told her. She said sorry to say but you most likely
want be around then so we need to found a plant you can enjoy now.
It didn't make me mad or sad because it is most likely true.
But people just have no tack now and will say any thing that
comes to their mind.
would you have said that to a older person ? Just asking!
