Kids These Days Don’t Know Respect
I promise to keep these rants to a minimum, but I just have to vent about this. I swear kids these days have no concept of the word “respect,” and I would be willing to bet money on the fact that it’s because their parents aren’t doing a damn thing to teach it to them, either.
You know, when I made fun of people or disrespected people in the presence of my parents, I got a sharp slap in the face and reprimanded accordingly. I don’t see modern day parents doing that kind of thing. In fact, they think it’s FUNNY! Just like they think it’s funny and cute when their 4-year-old is using words that only adults have any business using in very specific circumstances, and they’re using them freely in any situation!
I myself have been the target of much of this disrespect, mostly over my fashion choices. Anyone who knows me well knows I’m very proud of my shapely, muscular runner’s legs. Though they might have gone out of style in the early 90s, I still enjoy wearing really short shorts and flaunting what I’ve got. It makes me feel hot (not to mention it keeps me cool during hot summers). The modern generation of teenagers (and I’m sure the ones coming up behind them) mock me relentlessly, call me names, among other things. The older generation? They don’t even bat an eye or say a word. I’m not saying everyone likes my style (and I’m sure most people probably don’t), but they at least respect me enough as a person to not say anything!
I finally decided to take matters into my own hands and teach these young punks respect. I had a guy last week call me the Spanish equivalent of “faggot” to which I replied to him with a good dousing of police-grade pepper spray. He won’t soon forget that lesson in respect. If breeders aren’t going to teach their offspring respect, I’m going to do it for them, and they aren’t going to like it but they can just fuck off. I won’t stand to be disrespected like that.
I’m not against having children. I’m against shitty parenting that produces shitty offspring and continues the cycle of shittiness. THAT’S what I’m against. Teach your kids some damn respect. Thank you.
