have a…rather….limited perspective on society, I think.
I was sitting in the dealership the other day waiting for my oil change to be done, and was eavesdropping on a conversation between two older women from up nerth, ‘round Pennsylvania and such.
They were talking about how “kids these days don’t know no discipline.” And they proceeded, for the next 10 minutes, to blame youth for their own lack of discipline.
They brought up the draft. Their philosophy is that the draft was the only thing that instituted discipline in this country. They didn’t once mention parents, or parental duties being neglected.
So it was established that:
- it’s children’s fault for not “knowing” discipline
- although it is entirely the responsibility of the United States military to institute said discipline
- parental responsibilities don’t exist
They, in their excitement, misplaced the fact that many of the parents of “kids these days” are their grown children. I was tempted to, but refrained from, bringing this up altogether.
Enjoyed it just as well as the first :)
Except this time I saw it in 3D, which was well done but I recommend you don’t try watching anything in 3D with your head tilted to the side.
I saw three shooting stars :D
It was amazing. And as superstitious as it is, I have always thought of them as a good sign. The universe telling me that the way things are going is the way they should be.
I am headed in the right direction.
