Wesh Wesh all over the place

Well, today was a beautiful day, warm enough to go out wearing a single long sleeve light shirt. Lots of sun in the sky and not a single cloud to hide it. Basically a nice spring day when i was going to eat an ice cream and since the ice cream van from Ben&Jerry was coming to Lyon, i figured i would go to get the free ice creams. But, like very good thing attract bad ones, here i was, at the meeting place, and so was many youngsters.  Usually that would not be a problem. But today, they were all what we call: Wesh wesh.

Now i hear you, what is that, those are the youngsters, mostly in France and with Algerian, or any other Arabic country origins, speaking mostly with an horrible aggressive accent and half Arabic, half french. Basically only their clan can understand each other. What are their particularities?

They speak loud: Of course, you HAVE to notice them, you have to know they are here and act like they own the place…

They aggress you if you DARE to look at them in the eyes… Yeah, like some wannabe delinquent or prison whatever, they will start to get angry, even if you did nothing, even if you jut looked at them for 5 sec, they will aggress you.

They all wear the same: Sports wear, mostly addidas and nike, with the pants tight at the ankle for men, and like sluts with a mix of sports wear for women.

And while looking at them, and laughing inside on how ridiculous they were, they started to take more and more space, being invasive and really annoying, yelling, and going stupid stuff with their bikes, then arguing. So yeah, i left. And as i was leaving, i remembered an article saying that now there are classes for those to teach them to speak correctly and loose that horrible accent, in order for them to find a job…

It’s already hard for me, for them? That will be hell. And in the meanwhile, they make everywhere hell for us….

I hate humans….


Different generations

I will attack a problem that i think is pretty obvious for some of us who get older. The difference of generations and cultures. More like the generations. Most of us, when we grow older we look at the young people, and when we see how different from us when we had the same age, they are, we wonder… Well that happens to me a lot.

My parents are i guess traditional. They raised me to be someone who take pride in the work i do, to be respectful of other and especially elder people. To be polite and diplomatic, to be honest and even if it’s bad, to tell the truth and yell even if it hurts. To respect objects, people and know the value of money, i think is something most of us, older generations learned from our parents right? Come on tell me I am not alone Q.Q

But now, when i wander in the street of a nice sunny Saturday, wondering what i am going to cook and looking for inspiration for the dinner, it’s when i realize… Young people now, need a damn brain! What draw me to this obvious conclusion? Well first, let’s call them teens, late 18s, walking with their “pals” around, grey pants looking like pyjama ones (O___o) Tshirt and worn shoes (just to look even more ready for bed) and the other ones, same but with the cap on the head. Girls, dressing more than… slutty even when they are young, like 13 year old at max, trying to act like grownups, flirt with men, and they cannot live without a phone, computer and whatever social network they use.

Now i say what the hell? Back in my days, i admit mobile phones weren’t that common nor cheap, and the internet wasn’t unlimited like now. Computer were old big and slow machines, and with friends we didn’t need whatever messenger or phone to know where to meet. We didn’t need any internet to have fun. Alright i get it, time change, that i know. But what about the parents who let their 3 year old kids on the computer “because it’s good for their learning”…. Or those who give kids an ipad? Am I the only one thinking those should stick to barbie and small cars and soccer instead? O.O

And when they grow up, they have so been used to have all that electronic around, that they can’t live without. They lose the respect they have for them self (Sorry but girls 13 acting like little whore, thinking it’s OK to flirt around and more just because it’s cool are stupid!), smoking and drinking like sailors (if i did that back in my days, my mother would have cut me in small pieces and fry me for the birds), swearing more than they should, and disrespecting older people or even others… it kills me. And then they want US to respect them? What a joke….

I know parents aren’t always at fault, some are, but some aren’t, because no matter how good you raise your kid, there will still be some jerk morons and company to make your child go the wrong way. And i guess the good old thing of “No you don’t approach that kid, and yes you will be punished in your bedroom and yes i will take whatever electronic you got” doesn’t work anymore. Because now, parents get sooooooooooooo soft, because their own parents were too rough to them, so they consider that it’s ok to give to their child what they didn’t have.

Well it’s wrong. Look now what they become? Junkies, alcohol addicts, not able to write correctly, to speak or even to work. And if it’s our future, well let’s hope that the end of the world is like VERY near, at the end of 2012 would be great!
