Can someone please tell me......

WTF is wrong with some of the young adults that range from 20-29....I have noticed an alarming trend in the last few months around town especially in the area where I live.  We have some LAZY ass young adults. wtf happened to having some respect and pride in yourself to do what you need to do in order to become a productive producing member of society?  I am so sick of looking around and seeing young people waste their lives. I mean I do not even know where to begin. Is that some of these YA live at home and do nothing to help around the house nothing, zero, nada they just lay around in their grungy sweats all day and do nothing.   Is that you spend most of you days sleeping and your nights playing video games? Is that you are almost 25 and still have never held down any type of job  because your still trying to "find yourself" - I call  BULL SHIT that is called being f*cking lazy. You don't work, you don't go to school, you don't volunteer then WTF do you do with your time?  Now as you can see above I use the word some....before some of you get your panties in a bunch please remember that I am no speaking about all off this generation just some...and the bunch of somes that I have encountered are just so depressing, unmotivated and lazy that it takes all my might not to bitch slap them across their faces and say wake the f*ck up - your missing out on life! Their is a whole world out there...Yep I know things are a little tough right now but do something with your time don't hang out all day and do nothing with your life.....Shit I was a Generation X'er and we had some tough ass shit to during our times but I always had a job always no matter how menial or how little money I made. I see a generation of {some} slackers at this present moment in time.



I can tell you this...I am not that old but shit like this would have never flown in my house. We have YA"s who don't know how to balance a check book, pay their own bills or make a living in this world. I have seen YA women who don't know how to boil an egg and let me not get started on some of the filthy dirty women I have seen in the last few months.I mean dirty stuff all over the floor, bed sheets the color of dirt and hello can you please pick up your nasty underwear.....GOD how gross is that shit? At 21 I was running my own home cooking,  cleaning ect....working full time.   It was that way or the highway. Hubby and I have made it clear - when GG reaches 18 the following 3 choices will be presented to her.

College
Working Full Time
Military

She will not be coasting her life away not going to happen. My husband wants her to get her own place when she is 18 but being I am Italian I am fine with her hanging out for a bit as long as she is doing one of the three above. I worked from the time I was 14 and paid for my own college. My parents were kind enough to give me whatever they could from a private school education from grammar to high school to helping me getting my first car at 16....I paid for half of that car from the money I saved doing my part time job. I see allot of unmotivated slackers in our mist and what scares me the most is that GG is going to becoming home with one as her husband one day...That very thought keeps me up at night.

I really do hope it gets better but come one Generation Boomerang get your butts of the couch and start living life......

as the mom of someone who just turned 18 and has zero motivation other than *hanging out with friends* -- trust me there are those of us out there who are NOT okay with that.
it scares me that he has NO aspirations whatsoever... and i am clueless.
so when he graduates he has been promised a roof over his head and food to eat but anything else (clothes, phone, spending money, etc) is ALL on him.
tough love with a twist...

luckily he is the only one of our collective four kids who is like this... four would kill me!

xxoo

Oh man I totally agree... I remember running into an old classmate a few years ago.. chatting on what we're doing now and him saying, "Wow.. you have like a REAL job?" Ummm ya... can't be working some after school kind of job when I'm not in HS anymore! Helloooo... how is that going to support my shopping habit?

It's the "entitled" generation. Where these 20 somethings are expecting instant gratification, and have everything handed to them without working for it. Just don't want my boys to turn out the same way

I am with you...when they turn 18 they need to be something!And yes I am seeing a lot of this laziness too...not a good thing!!!

I let my daughter read this. At 13 she said that they should be kicked out on their lazy butts and if I was their mom, they'd learn in a hurry! lol

Feeling the love......
