    Yeah, I'm not sure what there is to be offended by in this. It didn't say anything about kids today are "lazy" - just that you have it "easier." Due to technology!
    I'm 31 and I remember most of that. Even the parts that I don't, I still find the humor in it. Because it's true!

    Heck, in regards to "laziness," my generation is Really lazy in general too. (a good third of my senior class did not graduate high school - either dropped out sometime during the four years, or just failed) But I don't take personal offense when people say we are lazy. Because, let's face it.. to the generations before us.. Most of us Are.

    Yes this made me giggle. Yes I am a teenager. And believe it or not were not all like this. I have been beaten up. I have a job cleaning 25+ stall. I work on my grandparents farm and no its not just go collect the eggs its cattle chasing, hand bleeding, back breaking work. Not all teenagers are jumping into bed with everyone or texting all day or taking drugs. Sure theres crap going on with us but there are some diamonds in the mine! Whichever people can go think whatever they want. I can see why people see this but there is two sides to every story.
    Don't mean to wreck the joke at all.

    I hate it too! Unless I'm making plans with a friend,or need to get a ride from someone, I hate it. Some dude kept testing me today- I got sick of it so I just turned it off! Lol

    What about mentioning some of the priviledges that we older folks had the younger folks won't get to enjoy anymore?
    We had TIME. We had time to do nothing. We could do nothing over summer vacation. We didn't have to be in camp or some sort of sports clinics or music lessons or computer school. We had time to just come up with something to do to fill the empty space. We weren't rushed like today's teens are.

    We had meals cooked by a mom who stayed home and cooked one every night, with desert and everything. We just came running if from our play and said, "What's for dinner, Mom?"
    We knew what was expected from us with table manners and such as we wer clearly told; No elbows on the table, don't feed the dog under the table, pass the food, dont' reach for it and as to be excused when you are ready to leave. And for Gosh sakes, wait for Mom to be seated before chowing down.

    At school we weren't watched like hawks on the play ground to make sure we were being both hyper safe and perfectly PC. It was rough out there, but you learned how to make it with bullies and big kids and whatever.

    When we went to camp, if we went, we could do all sorts of activities that are now too expensive for many camps to do, due to liability issues.

    We had the freedom to do sleepovers and pajama parties. We could disappear for hours on end on our bycicles and our parents wouldnt worry.

    Our dogs roamed freely through the neighborhood (not something I advocate, just that it was a freedom of the time)

    We swam at the beach and never had to pass any swim test put on by the lifeguard.

    We werent' expected to take tons of AP courses in high school. High school was just high school, not some sort of intense pressure cooker preperation for college.
    If a girl didn't know what she wanted to do with her future, if she just wanted to marry and raise a family, that was a perfectly repsectable goal.

    I know these things aren't necessary great anymore, but I thought I might raise up the opposite viewpoint from all the rough things we had to endure in the "good old days"
