    Sometimes I miss the 18’th century, when smart az kids could get what they deserve.

    ^Agreed. Complaining about the “younger generation” merely makes you sound old and grumpy. Besides, it serves no purpose, least of all teaching the youngsters good manners.

    Sort of extreme, isn’t it?

    Go ahead and tell kid. Hopefully your parents will walk over and I can explain to them that they are creating a power dynamic that will bite them in the butt. And a brat to boot.

    Once a little girl was going on to me, a stranger, about how smart she was. I told her that it would be better for people to find this out for themselves, and explained why.

    Think you mean the first half of the 20th century. This self esteem crap started in the 80s.

    Typical 21st Century sense of automatic entitlement.

    How about: “..unequal power dynamic that enhances my self-esteem by giving me a goal to which I can aspire”???

    If it takes a village to raise a kid, then surly it is not wasted effort to attempt to cultivate a little social lubricant — politeness, that is — in the youth of our time.

    “Do you know what time it is”

    snipped from wikiwiki’s waay back in the ’50s time machine comes rememberance of Buffalo Bob Smith [November 27, 1917 – July 30, 1998], sidekick for..

    > A distinctive feature was the Peanut Gallery, on-stage bleachers seating about 40 kids. Each show began with Buffalo Bob’s asking, “Say kids, what time is it?” and the kids’ yelling in unison, “Howdy Doody Time!” Then the kids all sang the show’s theme song (set to the tune of “Ta-ra-ra Boom-de-ay”). It was thus one of the first television shows with audience participation as a major component.

    Glad there’s a few people here with a solid grip on reality!

    “Yes, child, I know the time but you’ve hurt my feelings by disrespecting me so I’m too broke up to answer.”

    I was in a theme park in the 1970s when a teenager approached me and asked if I knew what time it was. I looked at my watch, replied that I did and asked her if she would also like to know what time it was. She perhaps learned that answers depend on the question one asks.
