Kids These Days

I'm no senior citizen but I have been feeling really old and crotchety lately. My major source of annoyance: teenagers!

My partner and I checked out the fireworks on Lake Banook and we were surrounded by teenagers... teenagers who screamed bloody murder for no reason in the middle of the show, teenagers who climbed up onto the roof of the canoe club, teenagers who shouted, "Johnny is a faggot!" in the middle of a crowd for no apparent reason... and every other word I overheard was "fuck", "fag" and "bitch". Teenagers, why are you so disrespectful?! I don't remember it being this way 10 years ago, so what the heck is up with you? If you were my kids I'd be ashamed! —27 Going on 80
