That's basically a rite of passage. As I was called a snot-nosed know- it-all a while back lol.It's a case of trying to be hip and mature and trying to look cool in front of their peers.But it's a facade, as we had a couple of students working the office over the summer who tried to "lord it over" some of the secretaries.They were swiftly brought down to earth when one couldn't work the photocopier and the other the coffee machine.Proof that age does have its advantages !
It seems the youth today are dumber and more naive then ever! Not that I think I know it all or anything but they think they have experienced enough to make it in the real world when actually they haven't even scratched the surface. Sound familiar?
This is very biased , you are an adult (so am I) we are bound to say that however I am a man of respect and I shall say that not ALL Teens are like that , some teens actually have been through a lot , we are forever putting these teens down "oh its easier for you kids" do you have any idea what it does to their self esteem? :) I agree some of them complain about life and you sit there shocked at them , they are so lucky but don't know it , but they're young give them a break. You weren't wise when you were young so neither are they. :) And its not all their fault , its the generation they're in , they don't control it.
Things are changing, and what you need to know for the future are changing as well as how you learn those things. Actually its been that way for many generations (the previous one complaining about the younger one. Your generation is getting left in the dust and one day so will most of our generation. The few who will live on are those who acknowledge progress instead of trying to rationalize it away. Every thing we know will change, accept it and go with it. Live to see enough generations or learn about it from those who lived it and you will see what I said.
Yup like my friend and me but I do not go out more so I am more naive.
Maybe it's not all our fault, but also a bit of your generations fault. An example of this would be the march 2011 essay prompt on reality tv. Honestly how is reality tv going to do anything for us and why would you guys ask such a strange question in the first place? It also has to do with other things though like texting and cultural influences from society which could contribute to the way we are perceived. 8) hope this helped.
