* Certain forms of senile dementia, by causing the frontal and/or temporal lobes to go before the rest, result in this as the sufferer slowly loses their social skills. Then again, once you've been around for long enough, you sometimes '''''just no longer give a fuck about anything'''''.

* Certain forms of senile dementia, by causing the frontal and/or temporal lobes to go before the rest, result in this as the sufferer slowly loses their social skills. Then again, once you've been around for long enough, whether or not age is a factor, you sometimes eventually get to a point in your life where you '''''just no longer give a fuck about anything'''''.

* Pat Cooper is in his 80s and refuses to hold back. He spent 22 years appearing on HowardStern and did not hesitate to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8V_xjCVpD80 ''explode'']] on him when he felt slighted. On a subsequent [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NtdmduuYw8Q appearance]] on Radio/OpieAndAnthony he spent an entire hour slagging on Stern and several other targets. The hosts noted that they are likely the last professional connection he hasn't alienated and that it will only be a matter of time before he blows up on them as well.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'': Olenna Tyrell. And ''how''. This is how she got her nickname, the Queen of Thorns. She always says ''exactly'' what she thinks. Or at least projects this image. A reputation for brutal honesty makes it all the more easy to get away with lying.

* Complain all you want... [[HypocriticalHumor you will probably do the exact same things when we get that age]], with the exception of those who make it a point to "Do unto others as you would have them do to you". There are elderly people who are kind enough and would frown upon this idea.

Added DiffLines:

* Deliberately invoked by Lord Shojo in ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'': he makes paladins clean out Mr. Scruffy's litter box, snarks back at KnightTemplar Miko, and is all around a CoolOldGuy who doesn't have much regard for authority or tradition. [[spoiler:Subverted - or maybe even played even straighter - when he reveals that his entire persona is a facade that keeps him from being assassinated: why would his noble rivals need to kill him if he's an old, senile, presumably easily manipulable ruler? Belkar, who had already liked him before this, promptly began idloizing Shojo]].

* The "Old people conspiracy" sketch in the French satirical show ''Groland'' describes how old people pass the time by being as annoying as possible to youngsters (taking a lot of time in lines, occupying lifts, ...) in a very well organised way.

Added DiffLines:

* Aunt Miriam in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' episode of the same name. In her first visit to Tommy's house, she shows off her lumbago, [[AccidentalMisnaming doesn't remember Didi's name]], chides her niece-in-law for "not feeding Stu enough" and for [[StayInTheKitchen not being a stay-at-home-mom]], criticizes her cooking, and even [[YouAreFat remarked to the woman she certainly has been eating well]].
