I believe the children are our future…

A few weeks ago, when all the snow was here, I fumed at the sight of dim-witted ‘young people’ wandering about in sub-Arctic conditions in just a t-shirt and without a coat on. Don’t tell me they weren’t cold.

Last night, in Liverpool, I was provoked almost to the point of apoplexy by young people wearing their special baseball caps under their pathetic hoodies under their shitty shiny plastic anoraks. It was perfectly mild last night. Don’t tell me they weren’t sweating up.

I realised that I am therefore equally annoyed by teenagers who a) wear coats and by those who b) don’t wear coats.

  1. You are just annoyed by teenagers.

  2. who isn’t?

  3. But you love them really.

  4. No, he really does hate them.
    As one of the two teenagers Daddy has brought up I can honestly say he was almost constantly annoyed.
    And both Minnie and I were great teenagers! 🙂

  5. I don’t hate all teenagers. Just the ones who wear coats, and the ones who don’t wear coats. And in what sense was Minnie ‘a great teenager’? (until she hit 16, that is, when she was.)

  6. The children are our future,Ian, you’re quite right. But would you feel happier about the future if they were all just to go out wearing a light blouson? Or a thin cotton vest and a cap at a jaunty angle? The kids are alright? Just ask Johnny Moped.

  7. Mmmm… Johnny Moped… in our day we had proper music…

  8. Yes Ian,the children are our future…we’re doomed 🙂

    Teenagers are a strange species with their own unique physiology…Maybe their temperature regulators don’t work properly yet.
    I understand that I will never understand them (although I do have vague memories of being one once upon a time)

  9. Good old Johnny Moped. Ian! He’s got middle aged! Brenda looks like she could be a right laugh with a little more alcohol inside her.
