I stopped by McDonalds for a quick breakfast this morning on my way to hunt morels. I generally don't do fast food, but I do like McDonald's coffee and their sausage biscuit.
The place is usually filled with older men, I think because they get free coffee or something. These are people generally 10 to 20 years older than me, so they were teenagers in the sixties to early 70's.
This one fellow was railing about how some person on some TV show kept saying "Damn this" and "damn that" and he was quite upset that children found that funny.
I was amused that he was so put out by such a mild curse on TV, and wondered what people who were his age in the late 60's felt about his hair, or his clothes, or his music.
And then he said, quite loudly, "That's what's wrong with America. No one gives a shit." He was so put out by "damn" but loudly says "shit" just a few tables away from the McDonald's Playland.
All I could do was chuckle.
