'You grew up in a different world, actually an almost primitive one,' the student said, loud enough for many of those nearby to hear. 'The young people of today are much more advanced than people your age.
We grew up with television, jet planes, space travel, man walking on the moon and the internet.
We have cell phones, nuclear energy, electric and hydrogen cars, computers, automated manufacturing, amazing technologies, and.....,' pausing to take another drink of beer.
The senior took advantage of the break in the student's litany and said, 'You're right, son. We didn't have those things when we were young..... so we invented them.
Now, you arrogant little sh**, what are YOU doing for the next generation?'
The applause was resounding..
I received this from a young 88 year old lady.
