Why Everything Sucks

July 25, 2009

While I’ve never been a big Craig Ferguson fan, I think he’s on to something here. We were just talking about how today, so many young, fresh outta college kids have that aura of entitlement about them.  They don’t wanna work TOO hard. (Note I said many, not ALL, so don’t be sending me a bunch of email telling me YOU work hard and you’re 22…I know there are some of you out there.  My intern is one.)  They can’t understand why I would work more than 40 hours a week.  My own daughter said “I see how hard you work at owning your own business…I don’t want that.”  “Like, you work on Saturday?” one bright young man asked me recently. One young lady said…”I work because I have to, not because I want to.”  Love the honesty.  But it amazes me. How attitudes change in a single generation.

Anyway, I thought this was funny.  I AM getting old.  🙂
