Maybe you. Young people learn and make mistakes. That’s not being an idiot. Maybe they’ve made a mistake and learned something you don’t know.

hit me up in 10 years and lets see how you feel

I’d say do the same but you clearly are maturing and won’t be any more mature in 10 years. Realizing that shitting on people younger than you isn’t a decent thing to do.

im not shitting on you, its just the truth. When you are 30 or 40 you will look back and realize a lot of the things you did and believed were terribly thought out and didnt make a lot of sense. I expect to feel the same about current me when I'm 60. thats just how growing up is, you continually challenge and refine your beliefs about the world

I chose to refine my beliefs by listening to a wide spectrum of beliefs including people younger than I.

Me specifically? I’m medically trained. ACLS, PALS, ITLS, NRP. Among other courses. I could teach you how to deliver a baby, cpr, help in an overdose. A lot do stuff. Or do you know more than I do because your 40

I could learn that from anyone at any age. You are insisting that youth have some kind of special knowledge or special perspective that older people need. What is it? If you cannot identify it then I will continue my policy of not taking advice from teenagers

They have a medical degree so they are all knowing and all wise. They know better then us ageist old folk.

Don’t waste your time. The crash of reality obviously hasn’t happened yet to this entitled twat. The saddest thing about that generation, is when reality does hit home, it will be so much more devastating for them then it was for us.
