rant1ng407716dYeah, all true.
But there are things you learn when you get older that just take age and experience, you should never take that for granted.
How do I know?
I'm 39...and when I was in my early twenties, thought the same as you.
Tech might change the world, but humans haven't changed for thousands of years now.
Don't shut out the older generation bc they can't work a phone. There's shit to be learned there
@rant1ng not saying there is nothing to be learnt there. I sit down and listen to my elders, the big difference is that the ones that I listen to don't completely shut shit off and generalize because of their close mindedness.
I am also not that young(not early 20s). I have 2 kids and have been working since I was 16(currently 27) I am not saying I know everything, but know well enough to be able to detect close minded fucktards like the one I was talking to.
Yeah he did sound like an asshole though.
And you know, that belief, that people who code have no social skills, is probably responsible for a lot of misery among young programmers.
Sounds a lot like "programmers aren't people like you and I so fucking pay them nothing who cares, they won't say shit"
bahua769716dAs Dan Aykroyd said, as Austin Milbarge, as Dr. Greenberg, in Spies Like Us: "We mock what we do not understand."
People who have been passed by, by technology are frightened, and when frightened many people will lash out at what frightens them. They do not seek to understand, but to dismiss.
ganjaman4280816dIm just here to say i still cant get over how you have kids in your 20s
Yamakuzure83016dThat one was... difficult. But such people exist, and will continue to exist.
Hell, one of us might become like that when reaching 70+ ourselves!
But let me tell you a tiny little story:
I worked as a "PC Trainer" in 1998. Basically I went to people helping their Windows to work with the installed hardware.
But one guy was the best:
He was over 90, and thought he needed a new hobby. So he booked me for three individual sessions to teach him to use his computer.
That man worked as a mariner all his life and had never touched a computer before getting that one.
It was very difficult for him to wrap his head around all these "alien concepts", but he was also very determined to learn something new to keep his mind fit.
That man surely made it into the top 10 of my respect list!
Oh, in the end he was able to do basic maintenance, use Microsoft Office, surf the web and understood that "E-Mail thing". 😊
