I'll "get out of the way" when I see those young folks pull their heads out of their phones and look at the world around them.

Just From reading this kiddie rant. I am now more than ever scared to step down as it were.
You have no clue do you?
It clearly shows ....

Without the BB's you would have nothing and get nothing. No light at the end of your poor picked on tunnel. Feeling cheated are you?

I'll leave when I am damn good and ready and not one second before!
You keep flippin them burgers.......one day you might, just might make it to the fry Guy.

Actually attitude DIRECTLY influences skill level. A lazy or apathetic person isn't going to spend their spare time improving their skill set and will probably opt for the bare minimum. Meanwhile a motivated person will work hard in their off time to improve their skills to stand out in the crowd.

The best musicians/artists in the world didn't get that way by coming home from school every day and lounging around doing nothing. No they spent as much spare time as possible honing their skill set to the point of beauty. That is called dedication and it is an attitude.

P.S. Looks like my prediction was correct... This'll probably be my last post in the thread since there will be no solutions provided here. Just name calling and more divisive tactics being used that benefits the ptb. Le sigh...

Sorry if your a baby boomer but guess what, your time is done its time to let the younger people move up and take your place.


Yeah, that's always worked out well in history.



You don't understand the internet you don't understand television and podcasting and you don't understand anything about what's going on with the younger generation.


We invented these.

I could go thru the rest but what's the point. It's not like this rant is unique on ATS.

Peace

It's time you retire from your union position and collect your pension and let the younger person below you who's been waiting ten years for your job actually make a decent living so they can properly support their family.

It's time you step out of politics and let the younger generation deal with the new economic and social paradigm that your to old to understand.

The fact is you grew up in a completely different economy, under completely different politics, with an entirely different social dynamic.

We have technology you don't understand, a police state that you haven't experienced in your early 20's and global politics with a group of people who think different then you.

You don't understand the internet you don't understand television and podcasting and you don't understand anything about what's going on with the younger generation.

Get out if the way and let this place evolve.


Make your own world. You can't just order people to get out!

I seek older people out. Their wisdom is astonishing.

You should try it....Ask them about manners.

Right and that's because we don't agree with the way things are done.

Right here is the clear difference between the generations and the poster I responded to above about my attitude.



Then be the change you seek and quit with playing the victim and the crybaby whining.

I don't think this generation is lazy, spoiled and coddled. I think they haven't become jaded enough to accept their lot in life and to engage in a self-destructive game of competition against their peers in order to get what they want. They look at the working conditions and the rate of pay and they snub their nose at it. $8 isn't enough money in any sensible world and no one should be working for that amount.

These people are truly inspiring. They are unwilling to compromise their values to conform to a society that makes no room for them. If every previous generation had been as principled, this world wouldn't be as ugly as it is today. You want them to become like you? You want them to get down on their knees for $8 an hour and delude themselves into thinking they are superior to the average idiot so they can lord over them in some middle management position? You want them to fall into the trap of partisan spectator politics? You want them to grow old without enough resources to support their families? You want them to die destitute because they had to mortgage their house to treat their cancer?

You have the benefit of decades of experience and your chief concern right now in your twilight years should be leaving the world better off for the future generations than it was for you so that they can enjoy the same level of advancement over your opportunities that you enjoyed over those of your parental generations. You put in the hard work so future generations wouldn't have to work so hard. That is the entire idea. Imagine if you had to work as hard as the average person in the 14th century. It would have killed you. The gradual domestication of humankind is the entire purpose of civilization, and creating a more sensitive, cerebral, uncompromising generation is not a bad thing imo.

Well, then, take control. Standing by and waiting for the old fogies to die off or step away is no way to get what you want. Don't be passive about it.

I can understand the comments about your attitude. But I can also understand your attitude. "We" have messed up the place and you don't deserve to be left a world that's crumbling under "our" greed, selfishness and short-sightedness.

But we're not the ones you should be yelling at. Yell at your peers! Get them excited! Get them involved! Rock the freaking vote! TAKE what's yours. Have some motivation. DO something.

By and large they are lazy, spoiled rotten, and entitle little d-bags.

I'm of this generation. You couldn't get most millennials to work hard to save their lives.

They want it all handed to them. They are the generation that gets a degree in fine art and expect to be hired as a top museum curator making 6 figures, just because. And when they don't get it they complain about how "unfair" their student loans are because they can't pay them back.

They don't want to be tradesmen, they don't want to learn how to work with their hands as well as their brains. They want 15 dollars an hour to work at McDs because their advanced degree in Film History has no market and they feel entitled to earn more just because they wasted their money, their parents money, and money they didn't even have on a piece of paper that isn't worth the cost of the ink on it.

I turn 30 this month. The last 15 years I've worked, gained skills, sacrificed, and swallowed my pride to ensure that I have marketable technical skills, a realistic education, and the experience necessary to be successful in the future. It hasn't been easy, but nothing in life worth doing ever is.

I'm not one of the many, many millenials who believe in instant gratification. That if I just sit on my ass that it will come to me because I'm a "special snowflake". I believe real life success involves failures too.

Most people in their 20s don't believe any of this and will make any excuse to discredit what real life and experience has made concrete for as long as there have been humans.

How utterly egotistical.

The problem is not the workers, per se, but the people who allocate the work. The problem is the people who claim resources that aren't harvested or resources that they, themselves, did not harvest. The problem is the field bosses and the field workers who say to others, "this field belongs to my owner/boss who lives in that house up yonder - get lost", while never realizing that the "owner" is playing them all for suckers.

There is no scarcity, only mismanagement.

Just my opinion of course.

The world has changed yes indeed...

However, if people such as yourself and the baby boomers that you have a chip on your shoulder about actually got together and discussed TOGETHER... then maybe things might change for the better...

My advice to you OP is not to put everyone in the same basket and take of your blinkers :



ONE DAY YOU WILL BE AN OLDIE TOO...

Kindest respects

Anything to back up those claims besides anecdotal evidence? Demonizing your own generation and buying into the MSM propaganda slamming us. Nice job. They did the same thing to the gen xers 20 years ago (I know for a FACT that this is the case for this generation because I remember it happening when I was a child), before that the boomers had the same treatment. It's ALL a distraction. Get it through your head. This generation is NO different than any previous generation. Gen xers used to be called the slacker generation for crying out loud!

(damn I broke my promise to respond in this thread... No more...)

I think the op is mad about not getting hired because his work lacks quality and feels he needs to put down the older generation to make himself feel better
