I work with teenagers. Sometimes
I work with teenagers. Sometimes they're so rude and obnoxious, I just want to slap some sense into them. They think they're right and that they've got the world figured out at the age of 16, that adults are arrogant fools out to get them, and that they can do whatever they want without any consequences.
I'm not saying all teenagers are like this, but it's really aggravating. I understand the forces that shape them to be like this, from bad or neglectful parenting to harmful forms of media to negative peer influences, but it still gets on my nerves from time to time. I'm here to help them, but when they don't want to be helped, it makes my job tough.
I don't always feel this angry about boorish teenagers. Just right now.
