Default You Know...This Is Kind Of Odd......

This laundromat I go to, this one lady that works there, she is about 70 years old. She started there almost a year ago. Everytime I go in there, she is always sweeping, cleaning machines, and cleaning glass windows. She has a slim figure also (probably from all that hard work). She is always working hard and seems so nice. The lady that was there before she started, she was about 43 years old. She didnt do nothing when she was there. When there was nothing to do, thats what she would be doing. Now where I work, we have a lady thats about 71 years old. She has been a cook there for 40 years. She is always working hard and always doing something. Now this other girl thats a cook, she is about 35. When there is nothing to do, thats what she does-nothing! Whats up with this? It seems to me (most of the time) that the older generation works harder than the younger one. My grandparents for instance- my grandfather worked 2 jobs to support his 5 kids and his wife (grandma). They had their own garden and always did work around the house. I am 26 years old- I should be supporting my generation- but I just admire the way the older generation works.

A recent article pointed out that the younger generation feels as if they are entitled and deserve stuff, and are often seen as lazy, technology obsessed, while the older generation wasn't blessed with gratuitous technology and had to work their asses off to support their families.

Janice Johnson is right. The people that experienced the great depression understand the value of work and always have. Its all they know. You might recall the lyrics to the song sung in "All in the Family? Those were the Days"? Although I don't agree with the words "We could sure use a man like Herbert Hoover again" I do agree with "Everyone carried their own weight" Lazy only gets you nothing and makes you gain weight and deteriorates your health. Working helps keep you strong healthy and makes you feel good, plus puts some coin in your pocket. We were meant to work by design. One of the 7 deadly sins is sloth. But for some people, it takes them many years to develop a working attitude, and usually when they do they stick with it.
