In all fairness, George, who among us understood that as teenagers?
And, in all fairness, name *any* generation that, as they got older, 
didn't think that young people didn't show enough respect -- you 
can't do it.

At the same time we bemoan how we wouldn't have dared acted that way 
as teenagers our grandparents or other people their age had some 
choice words to say about us when we were teenagers.
