Some People Are Crabby Spoil Sports

In researching if my blog is still #1 on the "make me a bimbo" search at Google, I looked at some of the other links and this one stuck out as being very amusing, but not in the way the author intended.

First off, look at the pictures of the people who write for that newspaper's blog, can you picture a less humorless bunch of people? I grew up in the Midwest, can you guess why I don't live there anymore?

Second, comments like, "These girls will never be happy until they decide to grow up," show the true nature of the commenter more than the nature of the target of their ire. That really should be re-phrased as, "I will never be happy until they decide to grow up." What a curmudgeon view of the universe this person espouses. I think it's just sour grapes that the author of that comment wishes they would have had a bit more of an "ill-spent youth" and enjoyed themselves.

Finally, the comments quickly degenerate into a bunch of "You young people are all ungrateful and lazy." But, chalk one up for the bimbos of the world with the following comment exchange:

Regardless, the actions of a few idiots shouldn't reflect on my entire generation.

Sorry bimbo, but it's not just "the actions of a few idiots". A major portion of your generation act like they're a few bricks shy of a load. That said, your generation isn't much different than any other recent generation. You just need a little seasoning/maturity/experience. I'm confident yours will be a productive generation given some time (and age).

Let me say again, self righteous baby boomers make me laugh. I see a few brick short of a full load when I see my parents old high school friends that were taken in by the drug culture of the seventies and are now brain dead.

Me? Just graduated on dean's list, and landed a very good job thanks to persistant interviewing and persuing.

But don't worry. The baby boomer generation will be very productive at some point.... I'm sure. Really. One of these days...
