to all of us eventually.
In any event (and in light of the response to my last post), here is another little jewel for the over 55 crowd. It too is very well put.
A self-absorbed college freshman was walking along the beach in southern California one day. As he did, he stopped next to a senior adult man who was contentedly resting on some nearby steps.
In short order, he took it upon himself to explain to this out of touch senior citizen why it was impossible for the older generation to understand his generation.
"You see, old man, you grew up in a different world, actually an almost primitive one compared to the world of today." The student said this loud enough for any and everyone around to hear.
He continued. "The young people of today grew up with television, jet planes, space travel, and men walking on the moon. We have nuclear energy, wireless telecommunication, and computers with fiber optic internet connections that allow us to communicate at the speed of light all over the world, and many more such wonderful things today..."
After a brief silence, the old man responded as follows. "You're absolutely right, son. We didn't have any of those things when we were young... So, we invented them all! Now, you arrogant little snot, what are you doing for the next generation?
Needless to say, the applause from up and down the beach was amazing!
