Seasonal affective disorder (SAD), also known as winter depression, winter blues, summer depression, summer blues, or seasonal depression, is a mood disorder in which people who have normal mental health throughout most of the year experience depressive symptoms in the winter or summer, spring or autumn year after year.
I think you are just out of touch lol.
Out of touch as in you don't understand how the youth of today do things. Plus your observations dont sound all that reliable. I mean you say you've seen the awkwardness, but did you attempt to engage any of them in conversation? You cannot look at someone and so oh they are awkward lol.
I meant no disrespect, and found you to be very mature and intelligent. My context of ''kid'' was not meant to be in any way condenscending towards you. You'll see the context of what that meant when you're 39.

It's not just "doing hard work". It's that people are becoming so dependent on this technology that they are losing their ability to do anything without it.
The dishwasher and washing machine have been around for a while now, and are poor examples to relate to this situation.
Calculations require you to know and understand how math works, rather than just type it into a calculator and *poof* magically a number appears. I don't think any functioning person couldn't scrub their dishes if they didn't have their dishwasher.
