Here is the next generation.... (dumb stuff my coworkers say)

I thought I would share some of the thoughts that one of the kids that I work with says with MCB.

Europe is a country and part of Asia
Coffee is a chick drink
Real men only drink beer (Whiskey is a woman's drink??)
Cork is made of rubber
The Hangover is a chick flick (actually any thing where a guy kisses a girl is a chick flick)
50 Cent is old school rap

Yup we are screwed with kids like this inheriting the world

he is 16 (almost 17)
Not alot of life experience

I know that I was dumb at that age but the "Europe is a country and part of Asia" blew my mind. I remember in grade 4 learning what countries are which and I don't remember them saying anything about Asia and Europe being one and the same.

If an entire generation is screwed up, look no further than the generation who raised them.

I totally agree.
I watched my ex's 12 year old son fail his classes and the teacher passed him to the next grade because "it would hurt his feelings". I don't believe that the ethos of "No Child Left Behind" helps students.
I work with kids that cannot simple (addition & subtraction) do math without a calculator where I learned how to do most of my math in my head (I know my 12 times table like the back of my hand)

You think you are scared by the kids in the general public? Start taking college courses. I am amazed in advanced level college courses at the level of understanding (or lack thereof) exhibited by some of the students.

I have a relative who thought Alaska was tropical because it is next to Hawaii on the map. This person is a grown adult and an RN. They had a 4.0 through college. You can be smart and stupid at the same time.

I used to think the same thing even about my own generation. "Kids are dumber these days, right?"

Wrong.

90% of people are stupid. That's life. I've also realized that no matter where you work, you have to be one of the worst people on the planet to get fired (laid off doesn't count).

And honestly, dumb older people are the worst. You know they're done listening and learning.

But being dumb doesn't necessarily make you a bad person. Good dumb people are much better than bad smart people.
