Default Work Ethic

You would think that with today's unemployment rates that the work ethic of my generation (25-30) would be higher and more of a concern. I feel that most of the people that I encounter need a big slap on the back of the head. WHAT the heck went wrong with people these days? Makes me scared at what the next generation will bring???



Or am I alone on this thought?

sure is. the work gets easier and people get lazier. one thing that really burns my arse up is to need help in a store. see two clerks talking. walk up to them. they look at you and go back talking to each other. I am no longer welcome in one store here.

It was alittle more than I wanted to spend on a junk house like that but the money I'll save on PBR's will be well worth it.

What time will you be home from work Carpy? I like to start early on fridays.
