Kids these days...

It really drives me crazy when I hear someone say something along the lines of, "Kids these days don't....." Some that I've heard include:
*Kids these days don't appreciate anything.
*Kids these days don't know to work hard.
*Kids these days don't know the value of a dollar.
*Kids these days don't know how to use a type writer.
*Kids these days use text lingo, and aren't learning proper grammar and spelling.
*Kids these days will never amount to anything.
*Kids these days are falling behind the kids of other leading countries.

It gets old! People shouldn't be out there making a generalization for the kids of MY generation. I just want to tell all of you that have said something like this that, I know the value of a dollar, and it is YOUR generation that has put MY future into an economic crisis. I have been paying for things that you payed 50% less for twenty years ago. The conversation about type writers and text lingo came up at my work the other day. I don't need to know how to use a type writer, I can use a computer way better than most older generations. I will challenge you to correct my grammar any day. Tell me I won't amount to anything and I'll prove you wrong! You don't know how much I appreciate the things I have in my life. YOU don't appreciate my generation!

Kids these days.
