Hello, I read your rant and I was with you up till you compared the youths conversation skills with second hand smoke.. Do you understand why you lost
me there? You can die from smoking/second hand smoke, but you can't die from swears.
Comparing the two like that to paint a picture that foul language is as detrimental to your health as sucking back on a smoke is just ludicrous.
I'm sure your parents and grand parents thought the same about you and your generation while growing up.
The truth is Sir/ Ma'am.. That every generation rebels from the previous generation. Every generation grows up, smartens up and then looks down at
the next generation to come. Yes it is a broad generalisation but its basically true.
If each generation didn't change, just a bit, we would still be talking like we were in a play by Shakespeare.
Also you must consider the many differences between your generation and the millennials. Kids now a days have so much more available to them than any
other generation previous. The way they communicate, how they comunicate, their online/texting language is different because they were brought up with
it. All that has an effect on how people (kids in particular) act. So essential the generations before them are the ones to blame as they
created/helped create this wonderful interconnected world of communication and entertainment.
You HAVE to understand that the youth of today are a product of the previous generations (not just physically but mentally as well). It was past
generations that created computers, cell phones,
Movies, TV, the internet, iPods, video games ect. Everyone gets annoyed by the youth but they never take into account that they act that way because
they are fully submersed into a world that is overly saturated with technology that was created by people 10/20/30/40 years ago.. They are the ones
you should be up set with as kids are basically the bi-product of their creations.
I was born in 87, I grew up in the 90's and early 2000's. My generation grew up with computers, they were still very basic, we had MSN/yahoo
but that was basically it (this was when Google was horrible and before everyone had cellphones ). But even with just email and messenger the online
language was born. It started off with shortening terms like "be right back" to "brb" or descriptions of actions like "lol" ( laughing out
loud). People started going over board and started creating abbreviations for random sentences/words because it was cool to rebel and break from the
norm. It was my generation that started this new form of communication, we were the first to use social media with sites like nexopia, MySpace, MSN
messenger ect. I know how it changed us in highschool, the way we conversed with one another from grade 9 on drastically changed over night. I
personally understand how annoying it was and still is, but you know what who cares?
Its 2015, I believe its time that society should stop be so judgmental about everyone else and just worry about their own lives.
Humans adapt, its in our nature. Millennials are doing just that. They were not brought up without online communication with the world. A world were
houses had one maybe two land line phones per house. A world where you wash dishes by hand. Basically what I am saying is they didn't grow up in a
"simple" world, they are growing up in the most technically advanced time period of the known human existence. Yes you could say that about any
generation but no other generation compairs, do to what can be done today.
Just remember that those kids that annoy you now, will grow up. They will mature, then they will be the old person sitting down complaining about kids
Relax my friend, enjoy your life and let others enjoy theirs, that way we can all live together in peace and harmony.
