People don't like getting called out when they're wrong. Defense mechanisms and all.

This the best. 99% of the time they get even more pissed, while you sit there and smile

I like laugh at people who get all wound up in situations where they're either overreacting or in the wrong, and I make sure they see it. I like to give the really irate ones a little shudder (like Kevin Pollack in the "fucko" scene in The Usual Suspects) to let them know how intimidated I am by their badassery.

I'm probably going to end up murdered by some overcompensating redneck in a 1987 F-250, but it has been fun while it lasted.

This is the correct answer.

I grew up where people just tend to apologize in these situations. It's actually one of the more endearing qualities of my homeland.

I was taught that when you do something like this, you give a friendly wave, and it's all good. You screwed up, someone pointed it out, and you acknowledged it, and nobody was worse for the wear.

That's not what the special snowflake under-30s you initially referenced were taught, so having their stupidity pointed out is an affront to which they respond defensively.

MrsG is often amused by my ability to blame all of the world's ills on Boomers and/or Millennials. So, in my defense, it's not just the young people I hate.

It's because they're embarrassed.

I still think there are two subsets of millennials.  There are actual Millennials and Gen Y.  Both my wife and I were born in 1987, we can remember a time before internet and all the gadgets we have today.  It just seems like a divide even among my siblings who grew up a few years later.

You're welcome for basically everything being better now.
