Why do older people hate trolling?

I've noticed a lot of older people hate trolling, especially my parents. Not just internet trolling, but real life trolling, like this:

and this isn't even bad. When I my mom heard it she was like "I don't like it. It's rude."

When it's really not rude at all. I understand some of the hatred, but some trolling can be funny. Do they just not understand it?

Update:

@ aimeé: I agree that most internet trolling is stupid, but that's not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about trolling like in the video I posted. It's all in good fun, like how friends tease each other.

    Haven't you seen Betty White's show Off Their Rockers? Old people trolling young people in person in public. I troll too, but not necessarily on the internet. Example: I was at the grocery store and this teen chick says, "Will that be cash or charge?" I said, "You know, better charge it. I need my cash for drugs. Oops, did I say drugs? I meant drugs. You know those dudes don't take plastic..." and that girl gave me the best "WTF?" face ever. Kids are soooo easy to troll.
