I always enjoy these little stories (maybe because I have more and more Senior moments!!)

A very self-important college freshman attending a recent
football game took it upon himself to explain to a senior
citizen sitting next to him why it was impossible for the
older generation to understand his generation.

“You grew up in a different world, actually an almost
primitive one,” the student said, loud enough for many
of those nearby to hear. “The young people of today are much
more advanced than people your age. We grew up with
television, jet planes, space travel, man walking on the
moon and the internet. We have cell phones, nuclear
energy, electric and hydrogen cars, computers, automated
manufacturing, amazing technologies, and…” pausing to
take another drink of beer.

The senior took advantage of the break in the
student's litany and said, “You're right, son. We
didn't have those things when we were young, so we invented them.
Now, young man, what are YOU doing for the next generation?”

The applause was resounding.

Don’t you just love senior citizens?!? !?!?!
