It is really difficult dealing with negative people.
I am recently having an almost weekly encounter with some serious negative attitudes. Besides being a downer, it saps my strength. As a math teacher, I am very accustomed to people who do not appreciate my subject, but rather than walk in closed-minded and deciding the topic of the day is unnecessary to their existence, decide to do their best.
Is this post a major gripe? You bet it is. But where better to share my disappointment with the World Wide Web?
Because the fact is - I'm not angry. I'm extremely disappointed. Disappointed in a generation that would rather complain about their discomfort. Disappointed in a generation that does not appreciate learning for learning's sake. Disappointed in a generation that thinks that voicing their opinion at the moment is more important than respect of an authority figure.
Youth of this world - wake up! You are missing so much learning because of your selfishness. It is time to get over yourselves.
