...The sheer magnitude of what these kids don’t know and should frightens me.  Their primary skill beyond texting, beard grooming and swilling IPA consists of flashing a credit card.  While those of us who own homes and run businesses have mastered all manner of skills, these spoiled apartment-dwellers seem mystified by the simplest of things."
