Age is just a number and some people are stronger than others!

Father-in-law is the same age and he shovels by hand his driveway, sidewalk and steps and front sidewalk.

Nothin like a usable strong woman though!

Not uninformed at all. We see it and we lived when kids were actually hard workers.

Guess you just don't have the experience.

Re: Things you miss because.......................

It's getting crotchety as hell in here.

Old folks are getting too stirred up.

They need to chill and drink some decaf while watching their Matlock.

Im in the work force, and seeing the "new crop" of employees is dis-heartening to say the least. Not to mention you can see it in our politics with the large movement towards socialism. FREE FREE FREE!!

I think a better argument would be where did our children learn all this laziness from?

Re: Things you miss because.......................

Well, I've gotta blame my generation and the one after for being WAY TOO EASY on their kids.

Will I’m sure you’ve been to the Beechwood Mall and see everybody there has their phone in their face or have been on a exit ramp off 271 waiting at a light and see everybody with the phone in their face and handheld devices are against the law in Beachwood when driving and yet they still do,

I like your posts Will but you not right on this one, maybe you do OK but for the very Young kids and adults they don’t, I mean everybody has the phone in their face, https://www.statista.com/statistics/201182/forecast-of-smartphone-users-in-the-us/

0A78E801-3182-4DAB-8AFC-A219148522F7.jpeg

Of that shows course all ages, more phones than people it seems!

The Problem is teens/young adults because once connected they don’t wanna do nothing else, they lose their skills and motivation, https://www.verywellmind.com/how-do-smartphones-affect-the-brain-2794892

Why Old people rag about the smart phone generation because they don’t understand because they’re not affected,

After you are 50 years old screens, phones or tv in your face don’t impact your brain change/ruin your mind as much like it can with the young people,

Us Old folk learned skills and abilities that became part of memories and became what we are/our personality.

if your memory, skills and personalities are online you have no memory or skills or personality in your head.

If you give a young infant or toddler a device to play with it will master it quickly but it won’t learn to talk or interact very well with people and other children,

if you let a young teenager have full access to smart phones and games he’ll be in your basement forever!

Be careful with your devices people ,

Re: Things you miss because.......................

Grumpy old people that have no idea what they are talking about, what else is new.

MopedArmy is becoming an extension of the retirement community

They hate the young and their newfangled phones and wheelies!

Hobo jargon and bitching about the young is the subject of choice in the off-topic forums

Re: Things you miss because.......................

^^^Young people thinking they have the world by the tail, and the generation before them is just grumpy, misinformed, and disconnected. The know-it-all, rebellious attitude of youth will never change. But once you kids live a little, gain wisdom rather than knowledge, and increase your life experiences you will realize how ignorant you really sound. But until then, keep on disrespecting those who have paved the road you ride on, and realize the potholes you hit are ones you've dug yourselves. I'll sit here in my old man recliner, patiently waiting for you to realize, and one day you will realize, we were right all along. And remember, everything you do in today's world is recorded, so you'll be able to look back and see it all.

Re: Things you miss because.......................

If you generalize all young people you have obviously not gained wisdom.

When speaking of generations, generalizations are expected, but one must be smart enough to realize there are always, of course, exceptions. But if I have to explain this to you, you obviously haven't gained knowledge.

Im pretty sure they dont literally mean every single youth out there. That should go without stating. Its obvious they are speaking of a majority of the youth, but of course exceptions still apply. Come on man, your a "new age" thinker, stop trying to morph peoples words.

Re: Things you miss because.......................

Saying "kids these days dont know what work is" is just a dumb ignorant statement made by most old grumpy people in this topic.

I've been working on a construction site this week and i didn't see a single person over 40 doing any actual work, so maybe the grumpy bunch is wrong?

Also Jimmy, socialism is a good thing, it just means money goes to citizens in stead of going to a few rich capitalist bastards. If you are not a millionaire socialism will benefit you.

Dont get me started on construction... drive down an american highway with construction sometime. There will be 20 miles of road coned off for work, tons of equipment every where, and 6 dudes huddled around in a circle while 1 of them is using a backhoe.

Also Jimmy, socialism is a good thing, it just means money goes to citizens in stead of going to a few rich capitalist bastards. If you are not a millionaire socialism will benefit you.

No, your wrong. GET HIM ANGRY MOB!!

Re: Things you miss because.......................

The reason you only see six people on a construction site is because thats how capitalists make the most money.

And i'm not wrong Jimmy, i highly doubt you're a millionaire so you only suffer because of capitalism.

Re: Things you miss because.......................

people have always been lazy. there have always been hard workers. I think Seth B kindof half-hit the nail, it's a jaded world view from both sides

I just strongly oppose ignorant generalizations because theyre not real, focuses exclusively on the negative and it's inherently defeatist. I have friends who have built nationally ranked restaurants from the ground up, people who've built companies that suppot the movies you watch, friends who've developed the screen materials technology that enabled the phones you worry everyone's too attached to, and others whove developed software including the shit we're talking to each other on now. I've worked with young folks volunteering to build houses, and repair bicycles, and develop sustainable aquaponics systems or low cost electric vehicles to enable sustainable commuters to meet their needs, other friends running hot dog stands and driving uber between a 40 hour work week, or making and selling their own jewelry and crafts (and then some of the same folks complaining about their "laziness" themselves complain about paying $40 for a decent piece of handmade goods instead preferring to go buy it for $4 at Walmart)

So yeah, I get a little worked up over this because these people are the norm not the exception and it's a very incorrect and narrow sighted view to cast whole generations as doomed or lazy when you're simply refusing to look beyond the worst case examples

Re: Things you miss because.......................

Somebody seems a bit cranky today.

And i'm not wrong Jimmy, i highly doubt you're a millionaire so you only suffer because of capitalism.

And Bas your still wrong. I like this form of arguing, its alot less work. I use to try to list supporting information but just blanting out stuff works great! I can see why the democrats still have a strong following.

Re: Things you miss because.......................

Could you please list the things why you are benefitted by rich people getting richer of your work and why paying less tax yet getting more returns is a bad thing?

Re: Things you miss because.......................

Bas has more than proven my point, and in record time!

Re: Things you miss because.......................

That's a quite lengthy way of admitting you know i'm right.

Re: Things you miss because.......................

That's a quite lengthy way of admitting you know i'm right.

Not really, we just been down that road a bunch of times. Let me sum it up for you... you believe stealing from entrepreneurs and disturbing it out amongest the lower class will solve all your problems. I would disagree on many levels. Somewhere along the line you will make fun of Christianity, and we will both end up still not agreeing with each other.

So again... Hillary Clinton for President 2020! Whos with me???

Re: Things you miss because.......................

Socialism is the epitome of laziness.

"I don't want to work for it, but I deserve it because somebody else who isn't lazy like me has it, and since he has more than me, im gonna take half because I deserve it so give it to me."

Re: Things you miss because.......................

Stealing from entrepreneurs, hah.

When an entrepreneur pays less tax than someone who actually works, they are stealing from you.
