Damn kids and their Hula-hoops!

I remember being a kid and my dad telling me how he had to walk five miles to school every day (always in the snow, and uphill both ways of course), how breakfast was the top of his dad’s boiled egg, and how he’d work a 40 hour week for $3 a day.

I realized today that I’m finally old enough to be able to say the same kind of things to today’s kids.

However, it’s just not as much fun to say “When I was your age, we didn’t have the internet or Xboxes! We had to take the bus to school and there was none of this digital TV or WiFi nonsense…you don’t know how good you’ve got it!”

…When kids today can just say “Yeah, but you didn’t have school-shootings, widespread terrorism and anthrax in the mail either!”

Damn kids.
