One of them said "back when I was growing up we'd be bringing wood to school to light the fire and come back home to help our parents, and we liked it. no playing with computers and killing people" and then proceeded with a really, really, REALLY extensive rant on the degrading of society.
It really helped pass by the hour wait.
What pisses me off about the "back in the day...we worked... not played on computers... played with sticks... etc.."
You worked and played with sticks because back in your day you were in the era of a world wars / depressions. They didn't have f'in computers to play on or they would have played on them.
FFS old people piss me off, I REALLY hope I don't become that ignorant with new things to come.
