I work in a college, and some days i don't know how i don't slap some of them in the mouth. They're all so arrogant and cheeky, please tell me they're not all like this, and it's just the horrible ones that are here.
I'd hate to think that when E and S are older that they'll speak to their elders like we get spoken to. I had one of them come and fart on my desk right in front of me a few months back.

I know what you mean. I hate the way they saunter in the road and expect the traffic to stop for them. The other day I was turning into a road, which has lights to tell you went to cross and these 2 girls (maybe 14) just walked right infront of the car, they got the shock of their lives when I put my foot down and headed straight for them, horn blaring, they ran out of the road screaming and made themselves look really stupid.
Thankfully they aren't all like that, my brother is 16yrs and he doesn't behave like that, he's very respectful.

Thanks SW, you've restored some of my faith. We quite often get them sauntering up the street too where i live. I do the speeding up thing, and they soon move. I just wish they had more respect. I wasn't like that at that age, at 16 i was working full time

They push the barriers with people they think they can get away with it. Its not all teenagers, some of them are lovely. Both of my nephews are polite young men. Well, they are when I see them, anyway.
Still, the way my 6 year old spoke to me and pulled a face at me this morning I am not looking forward to when she hits the teen years.

My youngest is in love, having her period and has a swollen face. NOT a nice kid at the moment

That's disgraceful!! I would never even have thought of that as a teen!
I know they aren't all like that though and I know some lovely ones.

There are some lovely teenagers around. But some are so lacking in motivation! They just think the world will offer them qualifications, jobs etc with no actual effort on their part! I concentrate on the good ones and pick off the bad ones one by one if I can.

I would suggest any age range in society has some horrible members be they those in their twenties, thirties, forties etc etc
I work with 11-16 year olds and I would say possibly 1% are horrid and even they can be lovely some of the time.
I would agree on the lack of motivation though. They are to used to instant rewards. If they want an asnwer they google it yet I remember havign to go to a library and look answers up!
