TODAY, YOUNGER PEOPLE SHOW NO RESPECT FOR ANYONE---EVEN THEMSELVES.

WHY would anyone EXPOSE their nastiest habits in- public?!?!? Forgive me for discussing tummy-churning subjects from time to time but —I experienced a real shocker today! As a writer, I have no choice but "tell it like it happened".

It was a real "first" for me.  A young shopper (probably mid- twenties) was standing in front of me in the Walmart Check-Out line.  I was shocked when she suddenly- released jet-propelling sounds and smells from her behind! Her disgusting actions—so loud and stinky--- were enough to GAG THE LIVING—as well as THE DEAD.  I’m convinced NOTHING is off-limits for today’s society.

We seem to be living in a shock-proof world where nothing is Taboo. Here’s my assessment of today’s reality:  Just scratch---where-ever and when-ever--- it itches.   Take “it” or “them” out--in PUBLIC-- when someone wants a peek; and drop-those-drawers to display your Thong or G-String or new Tattoo-- when or where you feel like it.   No toilet paper--- No problem!   And—NEVER apologize for anything you do or say!

With today’s defiant attitudes—anyone can belch, fart, puke, even masturbate—when or where they want."  WHY?!?!? Because this generation believes “It’s your right."

THIS IS definitely THE “ME” GENERATION.   Apparently, THEY are the only ones who matter.  If someone dares to complain---today’s generation reacts by--- getting in the complainer’s face-- flashing them the middle finger--and loudly-shouting: “F… Off”!!!!!

We’ve really come a long way and---IN MY OPINION--have hit--rock-bottom--HELL.  SO, just thinking out loud:

“Whatever happened to the days of being proud of our manners? When did we STOP wanting others to admire our appearance or applaud our confidence, our abilities, and our accomplishments?  And when did a woman reject the idea of being an elegantly-dressed lady with class and a beautiful appearance?  Where are today’s Ladies…the Grace Kellys and Jackie Kennedys of the world.....the beautiful women who deserve the spotlight--- for serving as role models to my generation of young women.

When everyone of value is dead---- when all the fine china and sterling silver, linens and silk, handmade embroidery, white gloves and party manners, have been ditched-pitched- discarded---- when the beautiful anti-bellum homes, beautiful statues, classic  gardens and elegant lifestyles are nothing but history--- when the lovely trees, fabulous wildlife, the wide-open spaces with waterfalls, lakes, and rivers, have been destroyed------------- and--------------everything old, memorable, beautiful, and classic—has disappeared, forever--------WILL ANYONE BE TRULY HAPPY?!?!?”
