Ease dropping

Today I overheard two teenage kids complaining about how their cell phones don’t connect to the internet fast enough and I was filled with such indignity that I almost morphed into a gigantic spider who had bitten their heads off delighted at the carnage before me. Damn fertile imagination again.

Anyways I wanted to whip around and give them a piece of my mind. Didn’t they know that when I was a kid we had to walk ten miles uphill both ways in the snow just to get to the library to look up what a desert biome was. Didn’t they understand that they were holding in THE PALM OF THEIR HAND a device that will allow them to be connected to the world, the knowledge of the internet! Shouldn’t they stop complaining about if it takes a second longer to get onto facebook and just get down on their knees and thank the GOOD LORD that they have this technology.

These kids and my reaction, they made me feel old.
