When I was a kid, adults used to bore us to tears with
their tedious diatribes about how hard things were
when they were growing up: what with walking
twenty-five miles to school every morning uphill both
ways through year-round blizzards carrying their
younger sibling on their backs to their one-room
schoolhouse where they maintained a straight-A average

despite their full-time after-school job at the local
textile mill where they worked for 35 cents an hour
just to help keep their family from starving to death!

Now that I've reached the ripe old age of Twenty-nine,
I can't help but look around and notice the youth of
today. You've got it so easy!! I mean, compared to my
childhood, you live in a goddamned Utopia! And I hate
to say it but you kids today you don't know how good
you got it!!

I mean, when I was a kid we didn't have the Internet -
we wanted to know something, we had to go to the
library and look it up ourselves! And there was no
e-mail! We had to actually write somebody a letter
with a pen!-and then you had to walk all the way
across the street and put it in the mailbox and it
would take like a week to get there!!

And there were no MP3s or Napsters! You wanted to
steal music, you had to go to the record store and
shoplift it yourself!! Or we had to wait around all
day to tape it off the radio and the DJ usually
talked over the beginning and f_ _ _ it all up!! You
want to hear about hardship??

You couldn't just download porn!! You had to bribe
some homeless dude to buy you a copy of "Hustler" at
the 7-11! It was either that or jackoff to the
lingerie section of the JC Penny catalog! Those were
your options!!

We didn't have fancy shit like Call Waiting! If you
were on the phone And somebody else called they got a
busy signal!! And we didn't have fancy caller ID boxes
either! When the phone rang, you had no idea who it
was, it could be your boss, your mom, a collections
agent, your drug dealer, you didn't know!!! You just
had to pick it up and take your chances, mister!!

And we didn't have any fancy Sony Play Station
videogames with high-resolution 3-D graphics!! We had
the Atari 2600!! With games like "Space Invaders" and
"Asteroids" and the graphics sucked!! Your guy was a
little square! You had to use your imagination! And
there were no multiple levels or screens, it was just
one screen forever! and you could never win, the game
just kept getting harder and faster until you died!!
Just like LIFE!!!!

When you went to the movie theater there was no such
thing as stadium seating! All the seats were the same
height! If a tall guy with an afro sat in front of
you, you were f_ _ _ _ _!!

And sure we had cable television, but back then that
was like only 20 channels and there was no onscreen
menu!! You had to use a little book called a TV Guide
to find out what was on!! And there was no Cartoon
Network!! You could only get cartoons on Saturday
morning....D'ya hear what I'm saying!?! We had to wait
ALL WEEK, you spoiled little brats!! That's exactly
what I'm talking about!! You kids today have got
it too easy!!

You are spoiled, I swear! You guys wouldn't have
lasted five minutes back in '87!!!!!!
