Haha. They’re not jealous. They resent you. Because you’re young and they don’t think you’ve worked your ass off for enough years to have any kind of success yet. They’re discovering that as they get older, their white man privilege is fading and no one cares what they think anymore. Except maybe their wife. And anyone below them in the pecking order. Because patriarchy be damned, the old white men people idolize are the rich ones, not the average ones. Yes, I’m putting words in their mouths. Whatever. Maybe there’s some of those angry old dudes it doesn’t apply to, but probably more than you’d realize. Maybe more than they realize, too. Keep writing. :)
