Let’s All Hope We’re This Positive In Our Old Age (50 Wholesome Old Folks)

We love to share wholesome stuff on Pleated-Jeans because it’s a nice little escape from the endless amount of crazy stories. Sometimes those stories are fun, but today we’re talking about old people.

Old people get a bad wrap. I’m always careful about what I say or think about them because I know one day I’m gonna be in the same situation. Whether it’s trying to understand new technology or driving too slow in the left lane, there’s always a wholesome side to old people. If you engage with them, you might get to see it up close.

These wholesome old people are restoring my hope for humanity today. I hope it does the same for you.
