Is it just me or am I noticing such a total lack of respect from not just younger kids nowadays, but also grown adults? Now, I don’t want to sound like an old fart complaining about the younger generation, or a self-righteous ass thinking the worst of every grown person around me, but it is really concerning to me what is wrong with people that they can’t even be considerate to each other anymore. I travel a lot and this is not just a NYC thing – it’s everywhere.
I don’t get people nowadays. All you hear is how everyone is worried about the economy, rising taxes, huge bills to pay, job worries, and assorted financial problems. Yet, when it comes to saving money or being frugal many of these same people have no clue or actually refuse to be proactive in their financial lives. They go paycheck to paycheck and spend frivolously with no regards to putting much if anything away. Hey, I’m no Donald Trump and don’t own much, but over the years I squirreled away enough to hold me and my fiancée over in case of hard times.
