Youths vs Adults @ 21:07

It struck me this evening, while walking through the car park at Daventry Tescos, that the youth of today are weird. Well, I say this evening, I've known the youth of today are weird for some time now.

If you've never been, and you should, Daventry is as dull and as boring as a room full of EU Directives. So it's no surprise that the youth gather in dull, uninteresting places to socialise. In my day we would go to the pub or lurk around the park or school playing fields like dog turds. These days, it seems, the best place to be is in a car (usually mummy's or daddy's or the one you've managed to save up to buy/steal) in the car park of the local supermarket.

Like I said, I was struck, while walking through the carpark, by the thought that the youth of today are weird. Mainly because if say me and say stainsteelrat were to hang out in the car park with our lights off, stereos blaring and occasionally intimidating passers by revving our engines, people would think we were up to no good. Or dogging. Or something.

So, with that thought in emergence, I extrapolate that the youth of today are weird (and are probably into dogging or something).

I spent quite a bit of my youth in parked cars! Possibly I spent my time dogging but I'm not going to admit to that activity here!

The youth of today look incredibly bored with life and when I cast my mind back I don't remember feeling that way at all during my youthful days. Of course, it was the sixties and everything back then seemed so new and exciting. Obviously we didn't realise that is was just the same old same old being revamped for our new vision of the world but it did seem like a brilliant time to be alive. Possibly, with the cold war in full swing, the thought of 'Here today nuked tomorrow' gave life an added frisson of excitement!

You really have to be bored of life to find sitting in a cold carpark fun
