I am going to vent a bit about the younger generation. Don't have any idea how many Parts there will actually be, but I have a few in mind.
I have been recently listening to the dance radio station in town and have been noticing a scary, scary trend in the lyrics of the songs. A song about being Lazy. A song about how fucked up we got last Friday. The one that made me laugh the hardest and want to cry at the same time for the next generation...here are the first set of lyrics :
HEY! Snoop!! the 16-28 year olds who are listening to this music...do NOT make the same money as you. They don't have access to pounds of weed by the day...I know that is probably an exaggeration, but everyone knows he smokes a little bit of weed.
Point being...a 20 year old whether in school or working is very much NOT likely to make so much money he can stay high all the time...which would also make him lose his job for failing piss tests.
So now we have a generation who already thinks we owe them the world and don't want to work...then they listen to this music and think "yeah...fuck it, I'm gonna smoke instead of pay my bills, I will go live with mommy or daddy if I get kicked out."
Hey Punks....time to grow the fuck up!! The world isn't nice! you have to work to get by, just like all the generations before you did. And yeah, it does suck...but mooching off parents or best friends until you have nowhere left to go, will suck way, way worse.
If you earn 300.00 a week, it is probably a dumb ass idea to spend 160.00 of it on weed. Pay some fucking bills, save for a car, or even buy some groceries.
I hear of so many of the next generation living like that, it has me worried. Do I sound as much like everyone's Dads and Grandpas whining about degenerate kids? Maybe it is just a cycle, I don't know, but I do know that by 20...I was on my own for the previous 4 years, about to have my daughter, working full-time...and so was everyone else at that age.
I guarantee everyone who reads this knows at least 2-5 people in the age range of 18-30 that live off of someone else or only have a part time job at fast food and nothing else but party-on!! And I dont want to hear shit about unemployment rate...I see job openings all the time but no one wants to work those jobs...they want the big money for doing no work...then shut up and go to college, otherwise go get two jobs if they are only part time.
Just plain lazy...then they need Snoop telling them to smoke and party more, because they aren't doing it enough now.
I have nothing against smoking...just don't spend your child's food money to buy your shit, wait til you make enough money and know how to be responsible. If it turns you into a munchie pounding zombie who can't do anything but watch TV, then quit doing it, get off your ass and do something.
I'm done with this subject...I am just pissing myself off more, writing about it.
Respond with comments if you agree or disagree.
SP and B and M this is not directed at you guys...just your entire generation.
