Why don’t older people get our jokes, and why are they easy to upset?

Every young and middle-aged individual in the room laughs at your jokes except the older folks. That hurts, no doubt. Your jokes are good. It isn't your fault.

But it isn't their fault either that they don't get the joke. It all boils down to the fact that they are aging. 

Research has shown that sense of humor declines with age. So, next time it happens, be more empathic.

Additionally, they get angry easily due to the cognitive impairment and memory loss caused by Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia.

In most cases, only young and middle-aged individuals laugh when they hear “Gen Z” jokes. On the other hand, older people don't get these jokes. 

This is because of the sense of humor decline that comes with aging. If you were wondering why they don't laugh when they hear good jokes, there's your answer. 

Furthermore, you'll likely have noticed that they get upset quickly. And once again, this is no fault of theirs. 

It happens due to memory loss and cognitive impairment caused by Alzheimer's disease and different forms of dementia.
