A self-important college freshman walking along the beach took it upon himself to explain to a senior citizen resting on the steps why it was impossible for the older generation to understand his generation.
"You grew up in a different world, actually almost a primitive one," the student said loud enough for others to hear. "the young people of today grew up with television, jet-planes, space travel, man walking on the moon. We have nuclear energy, ships and cell phones, computers with the speed of light... and many more."
After a brief silence, the senior citizen responed as follows.
"You're right son. We didn't have those things when we were young....so we invented them. Now, you arrogant little sh*t what are you doing for the next generation?"
The applause was amazing!
