Tough Guy

I was trying to get off the subway today, and this teen was standing in the middle of nowhere, blocking my way out. So, like a normal person I say, "Excuse me." He completely ignores me so again I say "Excuse me."  No good. So I move on to the "Move it." He looks at me, I just shove him out of the way and he decides it would be funny to trip me. So he takes his foot and hooks my leg. I fall a little but catch myself, kinda like if you trip up a flight of staris. I look at him, and of course have the desire to punch the kid. He stands there and smiles. I said a few choice words and departed.

I think people should be able to give a high school aged kid a slap upside the head at the very least. This generation of teens is horrible. The screamo kids who think their feelings should stop the world and decide that colors don't look good on them. Then, even worse, there are the kids who are into rap (this was the kind of kid who tripped me.) They think they're tough ****, but would scream if you so much as swung at them. The "music" is ridiculous and the clothing even more so. This teenage culture is horrid.

I know I am one so it's kinda ironic, but I agree. I listen to music by artists such as Rodrigo y Gabriela, John butler trio, Tommy Emmanuel etc. <br />
Literally all the kids year 10 down at my school are into rap and dubstep. I'll happily admit I listen to some techno, but I'm not religious about it.<br />
<br />
They all think they're top ****, and yet someone bumps them as they walk past and these kids get scared. Then they make a big show about getting they're "gang" onto you.<br />
<br />
It's funny because a friend of mine got caught up in a situation like this with 3 grade nines. He literally walked in, picked them up, and walked them up to the principles office.<br />

I just really wish they'd get a grip. I'm a sergeant in the Australian Air Force Cadets, and even there there's no respect at all. <br />
<br />
This latest generation is completely ****** and they won't do anything about it.<br />
<br />
I don't want to live on this planet anymore...

I understand where you guys are coming from, but not all teenagers are like that; trust me :D

yeah, i agree with you. some teenagers do good in school and don't care about popularty and respect others, but others are the opposite.

Agreed. No respect. But they'll grow up & will be saying the same thing down the road. (:
