A self-important college freshman walking along the beachfront took it upon himself to explain to a senior citizen resting on a bench why it was impossible for older people to understand his generation.
“You grew up in a different world, you know. Actually, it was almost primitive,” the student said in a voice loud enough for other people to hear. “The young people of today are brought up with television, sophisticated planes, space travel and men walking on the moon. We have nuclear energy, cruise liners, streamlined cars and Smart Phones, computers that work at lightning speed, iPads, Kindles and much more.”
After a brief silence, the senior citizen responded as follows:-
“You’re quite right. We didn’t have those things when we were young, so we invented them. Now, you arrogant little shit; “What are you going to do for the next generation?”
The applause from the people standing around was loud.
