Millennials

Today a young man driving a Smart car, went to the trouble of rolling down his window and flipping me the bird. This was apparently due to me going through an intersection slower than he liked.

Just so I understand, I’m supposed to take instructions on driving a 40 foot MH with a 20 foot trailer from someone who can’t drive a manual transmission.

I know there are certainly bad apples in every generation. It does seem that Millennials lack general awareness in real manners and go extremely overboard in trivial matters.

My generation (Gen-X'ers) are part of the blame. We came through the 1980's and 90's jaded and started raising the second half of the Millennials.

Lots of factors involved: familial, cultural, societal, etc. that started a long time ago and has kept rolling.

As far as driving, sad to say but that young man will probably not learn the value of patience until either at best he has a close call or at worst he has a bad accident or road rage incident. We only hope we can learn our lessons with the least amount of pain required and without harming others in the process.

When I start regularly driving the roads, I know I will encounter entitled people like him eventually. I hope they will be satisfied giving me the finger and moving on to leave me be. I would hate to imagine them trying to pull road rage tactics on me driving a huge motorhome just because they ignorantly thought I was going too slow.

They are Man Baby's.

They still live at home and have limited social contact.

I was unaware that there is an age limit on being a self-centered "everything is about me" person.

I blame it on the "boomer" generation that invented the cellphone and smartphone.

If 2 fellas are strong enough, they can pick up a smart car and move it! I seen it with my own eyes at drill a few years ago when 2 enlisted played a joke on an officer. They picked up his "sissy" smart car and put it in between some trees and other cars. The young officer was not happy. Lol

The Smart car owner couldn't be too dumb, he was smart enough to buy a car and coffin, all in one.

Are you sure

That your antenna wasn’t up?

Some people have no social skills or social graces. He’ll do that one day and someone will rattle his teeth at the next red light or train crossing. You can bet that a bottom feeder like him wouldn’t do that to a biker or a hot rodder.

On the other hand, maybe he was jealous because he knows he doesn’t have the brains, skills, drive or self control to ever be able to save enough for a rig as nice as yours.

Cheers and 🍺🍻

And that's a bad thing how?


Try laughing at them. The last thing they want to see is you making fun of them.
