Information overload causes anger, rudeness, and entitlements.

13 Apr

Have you ever noticed how society and the younger generation have this attitude that you owe me and I get what I want, when I want it and how I want it? Well I have, and it’s even flowing into the 40 plus age group. What’s causing this? I have a few opinions on this and I will try to explain it.

First its people who grew up with parents never telling them NO just so the parents would not have a child getting mad or upset. So many young kids have no idea on how to handle rejection. In school and at home they are always told how good they are or how good they did even if they failed. The kids are always told that they can do whatever they want, even if they are incapable of completing said task.  Games at the lower lever are played with no scores being kept. Kids get a trophy for just playing even if they lost all their games.  So as an adult when they hear the truth, they become angry or very rude.

Second everyone has the ability to get what they want, when they want it, and how they want it via internet or satellite T.V… 30 years ago if you wanted what was fashionable in New York or Los Angeles and lived in Iowa, you had to wait a few years for the trend to hit. Now all you need to do is get on the internet and click a mouse. 30 years ago there was no cable T.V., all we had were 3-6 channels. Now you have hundreds of channels and can watch what you want, when you want it and how you want it. A person in Quimby, Iowa has the same access to anything a person living in Los Angeles, California has.  This type of access has even changed some folks who are 40 plus for the worse. They are acting out of control and will throw a fit if another human says no or thinks differently than they do.

So many people ( kids and adults) feel entitled to what they want, when they want it, and how they want it, without even thinking of others.

Remember folks that humans are not remote controls or a mouse connected to the internet. Other people have feelings and emotions. They can not be changed into what you want with a click of your spoiled little finger. Bring your disposition back a few decibels and act calm again. Put civil back in civilization, or it will only get worse.
