I am one of those people who get annoyed on a regular basis. I can't help it; I am not a very accepting person, sue me.

One of the things that pisses me off the most is blatent disrespect.

I have mentioned before that I am attending school. My "college" is one of those 18 month programs, trade-school kinda deals. We are not a University by any means, but we are no doubt an Institution of Learning. When I signed my life away and took out the frightening large amount of money to attend this "school" I was under the impression that I would be attending classes with other adults.

I was lied to.

I don't want to be one of those old people who bitch and moan about the young people today, but ... OMG the kids today are out of control!

They are so rude to everyone; teachers, other students, the janitor. I am sitting in class today trying to work on a paper I have to write about the French language. Even though I am in a classroom I cannot hear myself think. Everyone is shouting over one another trying to be heard, phones are ringing, people are texting, fighting, Kissing! Really? Kissing, get a room!

Why can't teachers beat kids anymore? When was this outlawed? I wish that I could beat them. In my day, the teachers had control of the classroom. We were taught to be quiet and respect other people. What is it exactly we are teaching these kids today when we give them this sense of entitlement that they seem to possess? Honestly we're not helping them.

Parents, teachers, milkmen everywhere...Beat the kids again-they need it!

Just wonderin...what irritates you?


  1. Sometimes people should think about what's appropriate,shouting in a classroom- not appropriate. :)

  2. Heh, I'm still considered a "kid" and I get annoyed by the disrespect they show. If people treated them like they treat everyone else I'm sure some of them would change their behavior a bit. Parents of my generation really sucked at teaching their kids any decent morals. I just want to tell them all to grow up and act their age, not their shoe size.

  3. Smileyfreak,
    The problem is that these kids don't "think" there's anything wrong with the way they act. I don't know what the answer is but something has got to change. Thank you for stopping by.

  4. Gavin,
    My apologies, I meant no disrespect to you or "kids" your age that do act appropriately. You my friend are an exception to this new rule of outlandish behavior.

  5. Haha...No need for apologies. I understand where you're coming from.

  6. I remember being separated from sitting with my friend by the teacher.

    I was 23.

  7. It starts from when they are really young. You know the ones, tearing around the shoe store, pulling things off the shelf, touching things they are not supposed to. The parents just stand by. They don't just magically grow up into decent, contributing members of society.

  8. AMEN! I agree with you 100%. When I was growing up-I'm the tender age of 38-if we were loud and obnoxious, we got a paddling. Out of school, and yes in school by the teacher if needed. I never got one in school, but my parents did give me spankings if I got too out of control. Kids do seem to think everyone owes them something these days. However, I do spank my boys and teach them manners. I don't let them act that way. If others have a problem, let them call children's services. I won't live with my boys acting like out of control freaks without respect for others. I can remember when my oldest-11-was 2 and he would say excuse me, or please and thank you and people-some my age even-would look at him as if he were from some strange planet they'd never been to or heard of. Hard to believe but true. I am glad you posted this. While beatings are never in, kids should really be taught that respect for others always is. Kudos to you =)

  9. Oh I hear you on this one!

    I live in an apartment building that is occupied by at least 75% college students, and the inappropriate and disrespectful behavoir I see everyday is mind-blowing - it's like living in the movie Animal House - they're totally out of control. And what really kills me is that no one says anything about it.

    Honestly, I think teachers are afraid to say anything to them. When I went to school, my parents told my teachers that if I acted disrespectful in any way, they were to call them - PRONTO!

    Great vent!

  10. I agree, kids are crazy these days.

    People are so afraid of telling their kids no. I happily tell my kids no. And yes, I've even spanked them before. ye GADS! That might be another thing that's wrong: people don't spank these days.

  11. Tattytiara,
    Well atleast the teacher had enough sense to seperate you two!

  12. Wendy,
    Yea let em call children's services! Beat on! Why is it so strange for people when they see a kid acting apropriately? All the little kids in my family say please and thank you, its just the way it is, there is no other way in our family. Thanks so much for coming by!

  13. Ron,
    "Honestly, I think teachers are afraid to say anything to them."
    What the hell are they so afraid of? This is what happens in most of my classes and it is really irritating! Here I am paying A LOT of money to learn and can't even hear myself think! Grow some balls teach!

  14. Whisperingwriter,
    Man I couldn't agree with you more; parents are afraid to spank their kids, they want to be their 'friend" and not the parent. Well that doesn't work, you have to take the control back from them. At 31 if my mom gives me that look, I know I've stepped over the line and I'd better knock it off!

  15. They definately need to change so,the twats lol :)
