The invention of arrogance 1



View Profile

A very self-important university student took it upon himself to explain to an elderly man sitting next to him why it was impossible for the older generation to understand his generation.

“You grew up in a different world, actually almost a primitive one”, he said in a voice loud enough for many nearby to hear. “We, the young people of today, grew up with television, jet planes, space travel, men walking on the moon, our spaceships have visited mars, we have nuclear energy, electric and hydrogen cars, computers with light-speed processing, and…” he paused to take another swig of beer…

Which the senior citizen took advantage of to say, “You know, son, you’re right. We didn’t have those things when we were young… so we invented them. Now, you arrogant little fart, what are YOU doing for the next generation?”

The applause was resounding.
