Most of us have central heat, indoor plumbing and power.

I concur completely with OP's rant and enjoyed it. But be careful...it is too easy to fall in to the trap of comparing generational differences.

The solution is to grit your teeth, take a deep breath and force yourself to "hang" with those much younger than your chronological peer group. It is stimulating and enables one to keep a proper perspective on the aging process and stay mentally "young". After all, discussing chronic health problems with your age group is self defeating and boring.

This is a great Forum. You never can anticipate what you are going to read next.
Keep it coming and keep on trucking.
Great reading from everyone!!

I don't have any kids myself, so I have no knowledge of the 'insider' school age peeps world other than what I see/read/hear (mostly) on the internet - which, is a lot of BS anyway. LOL

History does repeat itself, but you'd think we'd learn from the past and make things 'better'? Sometimes it feels like we're going backwards.

I hate taking pictures of myself (or anyone taking pictures of me). Nobody cares what I eat for dinner. If I do take & post a photo of myself, it always has my husband right beside me - it's ALL about US. There is no ....ME in a sense that - in my opinion - if you're always thinking about yourself, then you're not putting enough emphasis and respect on those around you. Relationships - are made and kept by love, laughter, respect, and thinking of THEM.

Your upbringing has a lot to do with your behaviors - however - outside exposures also play an important roll. How many of us...Our parents lectured us that *drugs are bad* - but all that went out the window as soon as you went to the school dance and met your friends by the dumpster for a few drags/puffs. LOL

A few years ago, I cringed when I saw that my own nephew (18 years old) didn't know how to operate a microwave oven. Reminds me of my father who fumbles around when he visits...He's 84 years old and has a damn good excuse to fumble. I cringe when I see teenagers struggling with giving out change working at a cash register. I cringe when I see kids riding their bicycles all over the place (both sides, in the middle - where ever - not paying attention to traffic). When people walk out in the streets without looking - and they think " I have the right of way" - Sure....but if the driver doesn't SEE YOU, that 4,000lb vehicle doesn't care.

.... like most things.....we tend to only see/read/hear about the 'negativity' and far less of the positive and make assumptions. I know there are 'positive' , hard working, respectful, people in every generation. I just wish they weren't so invisible.

God only knows...we need more POSITIVITY in the world.

The unfortunate thing is though, positively and good outcomes don't make the media/advertisers any money...
