Fatwax Posted March 2, 2009 Share Posted March 2, 2009 I grew up in Grimsby which has a pretty big rock/metal/goth scene. Generally you'll get 17 year olds dress up in all the clothes and have the stupid hair and like the music etc. but then either get a job or go to uni and slowly ween off it and generally turn into more grounded people. I've got no problem with that, I used to have the stupid hair, the daft clothes and listened to the overly angst riddled music.. infact from time to time I still listen to it.. but one thing I've never really understood is how people stay in this mindset; the 28 year old with the hair down his back, the tattoos all over the place, the piercings and almost always the dead end job. When I went to these bars as a 17/18/19 year old there were always a few older ones that dressed like this and commanded a certain amount of respect from the younger ones and were considered part of the furniture of the bars, but after heading to some of the old bars and still seeing them look down on me for having my hair cut and dressing differently I can't help but feel that it's such a waste of life. In the last 5 years of my life I feel like I've progressed a tremendous amount and achieved things I never thought I would, while these people haven't moved on. Infact I got the feeling that they resented progression in life. Has anyone else noticed this? Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
