So we didn't have better technology than previous generations had? We were chilling on game boys when I was a kid every day lol.
So i'm at the mall the other day and there's this kid (maybe 10) on a bench, and he's sitting there, fucking around on an I-Pad. I over hear him say to his mom " Can you put this in your purse, i'm bored with it." Now this is the part I fly off the handle, and talk shit about the kid being a little asshole, and his parents being garbage, but I don't know what to blame this mentality on. Normally i'd say the kid is a spoiled little shit, but I was a spoiled little shit. I remeber the first little electronic thing I had, it was ninetnedo video game system. I got it when I was about 5 or 6 years old for christmas and I remember not even really knowing what the fuck the thing was. I remember my mom couldn't fuckin' pull me off it. I thought frogger and ladybug were the greatest things of all time. I don't ever recall a time where I said "I'm bored with this, take it away from me" and then wondered off. So how does this happen? Is it because kids have access to so much, that they don't even know they are taking it for granted? I didn't even touch a computer until I was about 10 years old, and didn't get to experience the internet until I was 14 or 15. I can only imagine my reaction to being allowed to use something like an I-Pad, or other type of tablet PC in 1998, because despite what I just said in the previous sentences, touch screens were still pretty syfy, or only available to major corporations then. Plus I hadn't even been on a computer, so I think my head would have fuckin' exploded. Now some kid, picks it up, plays with it for 15 mins and says."Fuck this thing, i'm sick of it, get it out of my sight" You could give them the "when i was your age talk" but kids don't give a shit, and you can't hit them because they made laws against that. You can't blame the kid because they're young, stupid, and don't know any better. You had to teach them how to shit in a bowl of water for fuck sakes. Even a cat can learn how to take a dump in their sand. So next time you see a spoiled little shit, taking technology for granted, just remember. There's nothing that can be done about it, just shake your head, and move on with your life.
All generations suck for different reasons.
