I know that some young people have it very hard. Some have bad parents, and others have bad friends. Some have good parents and no friends (which is
better if you ask me). But at the moment, I am concerned with the sort of idiot moron who has everything going for them, and yet decides to damage
property, and be rude to all and sundry, constantly.
I work as a locksmith, and one of my jobs is that I have to go to a local high school in order to ensure that the locks on the lockers there are
functioning to a standard which allows them to be used effectively by the student body, to store their P.E. kit, books they do not want to be carrying
around with them constantly, and other sundry items that all school age children require to survive a day at school. I do this because it is my job,
but I also respect the position that puts me in as a provider of security and safety for peoples persons, and possessions. It is literally my job, as
an abstract, to assist people in preventing loss of their property, specifically in this case, by offering goods and services which allow them to
secure their personal items, so that they have access to them during the day, without having to carry them around all the time. Having been in a big
school, I know how valuable that is, how much back pain can be avoided by proper use of storage systems provided on campuses and school grounds.
So, when I have just spent an hour and a half with the schools administrator, wandering the halls testing keys that I have cut for these lockers,
fixing broken locks, and making those lockers fit for use, I object, in the strongest possible terms, to the sort of dull eyed knuckle dragger who
then walks up to a locker I have just finished fixing, and kicks the living hell out of it.
And you know what else? I object also, to the self same sort of bastards who walk four abreast down the road, and refuse to alter their path to allow
a young lady with four bags of shopping in each hand, clearly struggling to maintain balance and forward momentum, to pass by them without having to
stumble into the gutter to avoid them. I had by no means, an easy upbringing. A useless father, a mother who was on anti-depressants for a
considerable period of my younger years, and a school which was full of psychopaths to contend with, made me a very angry person. But I was never, and
have never been so callously and deliberately ignorant as the sort of buggers you see wandering around at lunchtime these days.
Frankly, I am disgusted. Their language, poor conduct, and ill manners are a bane on all of us, and I am concerned for the future of my country, if
the pitiful specimens who "grace" our street at lunctime are anything to go by. I do not want to consider the horror that would come about, were any
of these total morons able to gain a position of power in either business, or politics. I am sure that there are many amongst them who would, given
the chance, do better. However, like I had to, it is for EACH of those people to CHOOSE to do a better job of being a human being, to step aside to
allow ladies with shopping to pass them unimpeded, to treat public buildings and works with respect, to support their school by treating school
property correctly, and to respect themselves well enough that they do not present themselves in such a ghastly light.
I have had enough. Well enough.
Tell your kids, get them to tell their friends... a lack of chronological progress, is no excuse for behaving like an animal, and talking as if one
has grown up in a prison yard.
