Step Back, Geezers

There are some brilliant humorists hidden in the most unlikely places. This comment was to a post by G.L. Hoffman at the U.S. News & World Report Outside Voices section on "How to Manage an Office Full of 20-Somethings":

I am a 20-something and you just need to realize that you are all old and wrinkled and outdated and we are the ones with fresh new ideas so you shuld repect that. and we are used to staying in touch with our friends and peer group and parents so we can stay in touch and it's not fair for you to ask us to turn it off durig the workday. i'm not hapy at my current job but am looking for a new one to find bosses who will pay me what i am worth because i have a college degree and probably know all the latest trends in the business world more than the other people at my job. i do think its a good idea for the old timers to learn the currnet social networks or step back so we can. i could teach them a few things, I bet.

At 3-score and 9 I find it interesting the number of times I have to give up in despair at trying to get the 20-somethings and 30-somethings to understand that there are technological solutions (some of them nearly as old as the target audience) to mundane problems.

The problem is not that they (or we) don't understand.

The problem is that if it is not in fashion, if it is not touted by the "right" authorities, it doesn't exist.

Thanks, Mike, I really needed to read that today! 30 years ago, though, I think I said something like that.

My guess is it was a put-on. The tip-off was the person's name: Britney. But it's close enough to many attitudes out there.
