I confess that I’m finding it harder and harder to keep my patience with a friend who is completely unwilling to grow up. The guy is in his 60’s. He expects everyone else to accommodate his eccentricities (about almost everything) but he accommodates virtually nothing. He acts like a giant child. It’s exhausting dealing with his constant weirdness. He has some great qualities, but I’m finding that the older he gets, the more set in his weirdness he gets too. Just basic everyday things that are normal for the majority of the population, he either refuses to do or learn. He’s gotten by for his whole life using his charm and charisma and getting other people to cater to him. But the charm has worn far too thin and now he’s a senior with almost no friends. Part of me feels sorry for him, but the other part just feels irritated with the tedium of dealing with all of the things he either can not or will not do. I’m just finding more and more reasons to avoid spending time with him.
