    I detest younger people (I'm not old as I am 32). They all are narcissistic and believe they "rule" everything and everyone. Every time I meet a young person, I feel as if they expect me to bow to them. I feel like walking up some of them, punching them really hard in the face, and saying "drop your big ego, you ****ing pussy!!!"

    They don't even get social norms, nor can control their emotions properly, since people are not owed anything.

    To all younger people, admit this is how you act in common/everyday scenarios. Everybody is free to do as they want (there are no rules in life), but so am I.

    :curious:

    You were once a young person, believe it or not. I'm certain not every one of your peers fitted your impression of young people, so why do you suddenly feel you are correct in suggesting all young people nowadays are like that?

    You knew everyone in your school well enough to make that judgement? If not, the 'all' quantifier has been applied inappropriately.
