Every adult generation thinks the kids are lazy, disrespectful and useless. But they manage. Another irony is that the adult generation typically creates things, pushes them on the youth, and then criticizes the youth for getting into them. When I was a kid, we were criticized for watching too much TV, talking on the phone too much, and wasting too much money and time on our stereos. When my dad was a kid, he got criticized for always messing around with his newfangled steam engine (he’s really old).
