Senior Moment

Passing along a story... 

A very self-important college freshman attending a recent college football game, took it upon himself to explain to a senior citizen sitting next to him why it was impossible for the older generation to understand his generation. "You grew up in a different world, actually an almost primitive one," the student said, loud enough for many of those nearby to hear. "The young people of today grew up with television, jet planes, space travel, man walking on the moon, our spaceships have visited Mars. We have nuclear energy, electric and hydrogen cars, computers with light-speed processing ..and....."  Pausing to take another drink of beer.....the senior citizen took advantage of the break in the student's litany and  said, "You're right, son. We didn't have those things when we were young.......so we invented them. Now, you arrogant little s**thead, what are you doing for the next generation?"

cool story.most of the young today are glued to video games,computers,or watching t.v. and a lot are overweight.we wonder why we have an obesity problem.the older generation didn't have all these things so they were outdoors burning the calories off.i would've liked to have lived in an earlier time.sad when this generation has to be scared for its children to even go outdoors.

I agree. I like the convenience of using a computer, but I think it's gone too far. When I was hired at the most recent company, I was told that everyone had to have a personal laptop computer. I have one already, but many people only had a desktop. MS Office with Excel & PowerPoint is used a lot, but OpenOffice.org (which is free) works great with PowerPoint presentations and spreadsheets. I have MS Office 97 on my desktop. I don't see the difference. Broadband was also a requirement, so my monthly budget increased. I also need to use my cell phone all the time. Yesterday a message asked "where are you?" and, when I called back the manager, I said I carry it everywhere, but I have a rule. I don't wear my cell phone in bed or on the toilet!
