It’s been a rather puzzling week…
By young people I am referring to people aged between 20 to 29.
1) Why do so many young people of today speak without thinking? So what makes me think it’s just young people of today?
For one, young people these days have been brought up to “speak up” and “discuss”, more so than back in my time when most were
simply taught to placidly accept, then question later. People outside of that age group do that too, i know. But as far as people i’ve come across through my life, they do tend to apply at least some filter and not simply blurt whatever comes to mind thank goodness.
At my workplace, no doubt part of the creative/marketing industry, there exist a team of talkative girls.
No problem, they need that trait to do their job.
But when you hear the things they utter throughout the course of the day, it makes one think, how can people of their age be so thick and yet get a role in a rather forward thinking, apparently fast moving and astute(or maybe that’s just my delusion) company? How many clients have they put off without realizing it? I’m certain they won’t ever know.
8 out of 10 utterances have been making me wonder why I’d even want to do work for this team. Jaw-droppingly stumped!
I never believed in the term “dumb blondes” because I have known many blondes who are anything but dumb!
But this is one classic example that says, “yep, there you go, one fine example.”
