Thread Name: BS: Has the Internet changed kids?
Subject: RE: BS: Has the Internet changed kids?
Victoria made what she thought was a joke. It wasn't particularly funny and I said so. Politely. She was the one who swore at me, told me to get the fuck over it, and if I didn't like it, too bad.

Now you tell me who was getting the humiliation treatment. I am not now, nor have I ever been, in the business of humiliating people.

But that's not what I was asking. What I want to know is, why do some of the kids today think it's all right to just say whatever the hell they want, to whomever the hell they want, end expect it to be perfectly acceptable? I don't even talk that way to adults I know.

If you must know, I have several teenagers in my life who I admire very much, and we have great conversations together. And I told Victoria today that I admired her spirit, and could we please shake hands now.

So there.
