I try to talk to my teenage nieces and nephews and they still have their spoil, I am so entitled that my parents and the world owe me attitudes. I am almost glad that reality is going to slap them in the face.
Are you for real? "Glad!?!"
I lost my job, I eat once a day, and I am on the brink of getting evicted from a home in which the heat is locked in at 60 degrees (in Michigan, during the winter), and the shelter is full. I can only get on the internet when I'm at the library (which is often, because I have to use the internet as a tool to find job openings). I have a solid resume, a college education, and I am not a felon. Yet, even though I apply to 10 jobs a day, I have not found work -- and I apply for any job that becomes available within my area. So does everybody else. Everybody I know gets up in the morning and tries, and tries, and tries. Everyday, it doesn't work.
To be glad that my generation is receiving what you call a "slap in the face" is...well, that's just heartless. We weren't the ones who started this "borrow and spend" culture, we were only socialized by it.
But go ahead, moan about the young people if it makes you feel better.[edit on 2-3-2009 by theWCH]

Well I heard Rush Limbuagh say things where a lot better now then they where in 80s.
something about that statement seemed so wrong to me. How can a guy like that be so out of touch. Also. Not trying to jack your thread.
