I don't think that many old people like to criticize, in my observation some are just tactless in making comments. They do it in such a way that is offending to others. Since they have seen the world a lot longer, they tend to compare things and their experiences are a lot better than the newer generation. enjoy!

manong I find that some of these replies are tactless and they are made I assume from young or younger people so us older ones do not have the last word on tactless by any means.

I think after a certain amount of time here on Earth you lose a sense of filtering. There are many times when I have seem this behavior. I don't necessarily think it is on purpose, I more think it happens naturally. I in no way want to sounds like I am stereotyping all elderly though because there are many very sweet and gentle and kind people out there that need a high five

bart78 did you ever realize that one day whether or not you want to you will be old yourself.how dare you say that all old people hate to be critized but love criticizing other people's lives" HOw many old people do you even know personally? I am 83 and if someone criticizes me when I have done something wrong I am not going to blow my top. But look us senior citizens do resent being lumped like that in a blanket assertion. I do not particularly love criticising others lives at all. but I will criticize some one who is treating me unfairly. judge not lest you be judged. so do not judge us because of a few people who have evidently teed you off. also do not just that term in a demeaning way.would you like to read a discussion saying why do all young people hate to be criticized but will always criticize older people? no of course you would not.

I have noticed this and i must say the only answer i think is that they are so bored so they have to find a hobby as they have nothing else to keep their minds occupied.Just think we will be old one day and we maybe just like them,what a thought.Happy Mylotting.

Just a taught. I think the reason is that older people are thinking that they already possessed all the knowledge and experience and that they already become experts on "life". Thats why making "comments" about some other peoples lives tells them that they are the right ones. Other reason is that when they talk about younger people, they usually compare it with their past experiences, experiences that sometimes obsolete in the modern world. But its a good thing they talk a lot, as long as it doesn't hurt to the persons they are talking too.

well know one shulud criticize anyone.. criticizing old or young or big or small is not good at all.. no one can justify it saying they have criticized someone earlier and we can do the same to them... there are good old people and bad old people... humans are not perfect.. happy mylotting..

I don't think anybody likes to be criticised old or young. Old people have alot to offer because of there age. I was taught always respect your elders

Oh, sorry, but I think the seniors are much wiser than us. I am open to any kind of advice they offer. I enjoy having chit chats with them. They tell me things I never heard or think of before. If some of them are annoying, I think that's just their personality, not because of their age. They are just like us, age are just numbers. We will be old too, it's just a matter of time.

Well, it must be their past time, as you said. Ha ha ! No , no. I don't think they are doing that as a past time. On the contrary, they are probably doing that with all the good will to help people get on to the right tract, based on the extensive experience they have had themselves. It is more as a help that criticizing. We can learn a lot from their experience.
