Good point, OP. The 'net is a great equalizer. Then again, you are 'well spoken' - articulate & concise in expressing your thought. I think that
helps big time, when others are looking at what we read. Back when 'The Safety Dance' was on the radio I worked in a R&D Lab. A scientist commented
to me one day about using his "suit & tie voice" on the telephone. He explained on the phone no one sees you, so you may use this to your advantage.
I got a kick out of that.
I noticed as a child, a teen and a young man how many of my elders were openly discourteous, rude, sometimes even hostile toward youths. But you never
know what people have on their plate, maybe they are just having a bad day, a bad year, or maybe they are just miserable to be around no matter
Young people these days have more going on for them then ever before, IMHO. I'll chat with the 'kids' working here or there while I'm waiting for
my food order or what-not. When I was young all I cared about was sex & drugs & rock n roll. Pathetic. The youth of today that I've encountered are
the most well-informed people I've met. It makes me feel good to know the wool is not getting pulled over everyones eyes.
