I have little hope for to-day's youth
Well, it's sad to say, but I have little hope for to-day's youth.
As you know I work on the weekends & my commute involves seeing the youth of to-day passed out on the bus from a night of drinking.
My bus driver & I both agreed that 20-30 years from now, there's going to be alot of depressed people. It is really amazing how much they spend and have nothing to show for it. Now that said, I'm sure most don't have any responsibilities as they live at home. Oh can you imagine what's going to happen when they have to fend for themselves
The old values of being thrifty and trying to save for one's future should be brought back. Again, parents are to blame by spoiling them. That said, I don't think I was alot better, but then as I grew older, I DID have the responsibility of looking after my family being an only child. We didn't have alot of money but made the most of what we had.
It amazes me when I see the latest Walmart ad about the mother buying laptops, iPods etc, there's a perfect example of what SHOULD NOT be happening during hard economic times.
Oh well, we'll see what happens 30 years from now!!
