Score one for the old guy

A very self-important college freshman, drinking at the local pub, 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 grew up with television, jet planes, space travel, man walking on the moon, our spaceships have visited Mars. We have nuclear energy, electric and hydrogen cars, computers with
light-speed processing ...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, you arrogant little sh**head, what are YOU doing for the next generation?"

    I do think that there is no appropriate answer here, and that this may be a short replied topic, albeit, a very important one.
    Maybe one of the most important, off food topic one ever posted.

    Hello All,
    the story continues...
    A sophomore was sitting in a booth near the bar and overheard the conversation between the
    Senior and the Freshman. Her first thought was that both were a--holes, but then memories
    of her grandfather, father, and brother flashed in her heart. Holidays and special events
    that she helped her mother and grandmother prepare rushed in her mind.
    She got up and went to the bar and put her hands on the shoulders of the two she had overheard.
    "Thank you for all that you done in your life,"she said to the Senior, "you've sacrificed alot.
    You've saved us from some of the nuts and truly evil people of your generation. You've used your mind
    resources wisely at times, and at other times created a mess. But you've done the best you could.
    And I've inherited your love, compassion, and God, for which I am grateful."
    She turned to the freshman and said, "And you, my brother, have so much to give because of this man.
    We will create a world that truly reflects what this man's generation has given us. We've been
    given gold, so quit acting like you're tin. One day, your grandchild, if you're lucky enough to have one,
    may ask for your advice rather than giving his opinion. And on that day, you will, we will, have
    good advice to give them."
    She stepped back, looked at both of them, and said, "Gentlemen, if you would join me at my booth, I have
    a few questions of you both..."
    Take Care,
    Fieldthistle
