These little empowered nitwits think I’m on the down of life. I’m a very spunky 52 year old man. What they have no clue is that what I do these days is easy money. They make $12 an hour plus 10-15 dollars in shared tips. So, if they are lucky, they’ll make around $22k per year. I make 50k and more at year.
They’ve been given a taste of power at 19-20 years old. So now they think they’re so wise and responsible. These kids have yet to live life or experience much at all. Try pulling dead bodies out of a sea wreckage. Spend a year traveling the world. Defending themselves in a robbery. You kids don’t know shit yet. Except perhaps mommy is a drug addict and daddy never wanted kids.
I get it. When I was 20 I was a general manager of a dominoes. You know, a company that had 5000 stores in 1989? Oh and a little Caesar’s at 22. So I understand that taste of power.
Yet every day at work it’s a sing-a-long dance party while gossiping about that nonsense on social media and giggling about that cute guy/girl. Or how high/drunk you got last night.
Just wait until you’ve experienced destitution, near death experiences or having been at the bottom of life clawing your way back. Possibly more than once. You’ll look back one day in your older years and know I’m right. Hell, most likely I’ve done more before I was 30 than you’ll ever do.
Let’s face it. I get insanely irritated that you can’t even do simple math. Telling me that 4x $20 bills and 2x $10 bills is the same as 4x $10 bills and 2x $20 bills. If you believe that, you’re going to start costing the company money.
Yet they look at me with disgust anytime I don’t act my age.
But hey. If I do something you think it’s childish, it’s because life hasn’t beat me yet. Will it beat you? And honestly, how can anyone take you seriously when you always dress like your on your way to the latest cool kid party 🙄
That’s ok kids. I’m living life comfortably with minimal stress and having a blast doing it. You can keep pretending you’re important and grown up. You haven’t seen anything yet.
