they think they deserve the big money
One of the biggest differences between myself and my parents is that a married couple with kids could afford everything (mortgage, car, food, bills etc...) on (usually) the husbands wage.
That isn't possible on the average wage anymore.
Then we have the Lotto and a whole host of media telling everyone what they have to have to be happy. It's perverse.
So people go round wearing expensive clothes but don't have any money.
I thought the film showed me a glimpse of a world I happily will never know.
As for my parents... they like call us idiots :)))
The older I become (I am still quite young) the more I agree that I was an idiot.
But there seems to be a good way to go. When you're young you do stupid things, push boundaries, sometimes reckless and thoughtless.
Sure I think if it weren't like that you wouldn't be able to say you really lived, not really :)
Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping -- they called it opportunity.
Rule 6: If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them.
Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you are. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent's generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.
Above quote attributed to Bill Gates but apparently he didn't write it, doesn't really matter but just thought I'd say.
