* Deconstructed in one of the Disney episodes of ''WesternAnimation/{{Doug}}'' as Doug and the rest of his class do volunteer work at a local nursing home. Doug is assigned to a woman named Mrs. Whackhammer, who initially refuses to talk, and then blows up on him. Later on, Doug realizes her hostility may be her trying to mask how lonely she really is. At the same time, Doug is supposed to do a history report on one of the town's mayors, and upon some research, finds out that Mrs. Whackhammer actually knew him. The two end up bonding when she sees him working on the report, and gives him some first-hand information that would have otherwise been left out.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/Warhammer40000SpaceMarine'': Sidonus is notably less formal in speech compared to his battle brothers, bordering on DeadpanSnarker. Not many space marines speak like guardsmen for fear of being judged as heretics by their crazed Fundamentalist superiors, but he's been around too long and fought too many greater terrors to fear a little thing like that.

See also GrumpyOldMan and WhenIWasYourAge. May result in RacistGrandma. On the flip side, it can also be a trait of the CoolOldGuy or BadassGrandpa, or their female counterparts.

* 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'''''.

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.
