"Spare the rod, spoil the child'

The only reason things like these are going today is because everyone has too much free will to"do what they want".

Which is sad and pathetic.

People these days do indeed seem to get their feelings hurt far too easily.

This generation has been raised to believe that everyone is special and so are they. Sunshine and rainbows, which can really affect somebody to become sensitive and want everything good happen to them. So when something " bad " comes into their life, they all whine whine and bitch bitch.

That's why I decided to take every occasion to tell my daughter what a miserable pile of failure she is and how she will never gain anything worthy in life.

I use to have friends like those..completely cut them out of my life.

It looks like she was just trying to find some support: it is annoying helping people who make problems for themselves, but reminding them about how much worse off others are never really seems to work either.

Sometimes it's better just to redirect the conversation.

OP is an insensitive prick with no original ideas. Move to Africa? Srsly?

One thing that you won't realize until you've had a reality check is that people don't always have the strength to deal with their own problems. That's why they look for help and compassion from their friends and family.

This concept is frighteningly easy to understand.

This broken girl came to you looking for a shoulder to cry on, and you turned her away in the most asshat way possible. Good job, you kicked a dog while it was down, then posted about it on Newgrounds; do you want a fucking medal?

Kids are spoiled nowadays. Plain and simple. Of course, I am not one of them, coming from a poor family and being happy with everything I have. But other kids are complainers.

Sometimes when I hear kids complaining out loud, I say to myself: "Post a thread about it on the Newgrounds BBS.". I would always laugh imagining how that would turn out.

Really, you're complaining about teenagers being self-absorbed while you acted like a complete self-righteous asshole to someone who was having a vulnerable moment?

Being sad is fine, but saying your life is worse than those of the children of Africa, who have no home, little food and water, and some of which live in a war zone, and most of which will be lucky to see tomorrow....well....saying that makes you a complete fucking asshole.

They curse like a fifty year old sailor, overreact to the slightest upset in their life, text and go on Facebook, and treat everything like it affects their future forever.

Oh for fucks sake spare me the whiny little child attitude. This world ain't one of kitten farts and rainbow kises; It's the real one. I've dealt with this girl more times than i care to count because she goes out, dates some druggy fuck with kids, then crys about it later how he bwoke her heawt.
Bullshit.

If she was an actual close friend, i'd give her more than enough sympany. But this girl, like some of you said, makes problems just so she can fish for compliments n shit.
I feel no pity towards people who injure themselves for attention and half-assed self confidence boosts.

Where was this girl at when i had a problem to talk about? Probably out bangin some meth'd up father.


Not only do I not know what's going on, I wouldn't know what to do about it if I did.

I actually completely get where the OP is coming at. I've got no real problem with being that shoulder to cry on, but it's not so much that teenagers have problems in their lives so much as they insist that their problems are worse then everyone else's and it just fucking chips away at my patience. Course, then I tell them a bit about my life and they shut the hell up, but it's everywhere - that emo fat chick crying on the bus, the walls filled with teenagers rolling around in self-pity.

But it's the generation of today, thinking that life should be fair. No idea how it's going to get fix, the whole "shut them the hell up", when I'm actually pretty sure that on some level they want to be fucked up by life - to get the attention and pity of others in their lives, the comforting arms and the knowledge that they are special in life. Eh.

Anyway, I agree with OP. Teenagers suck, and I'm one of them too.

What most of you fail to comprehend is that kids/teenagers always bitch over meaningless shit. Especially females; I'm sure any of you guys with younger siblings have heard your fair share of girly drama and other such bullshit. The only reason you think you've been finding such a rampant increase in it is because now social networking has its greasy tentacles entwined about society's neck and it's basically shoved in your face. Or, in other words, because now there is a massive electronic medium with which they can tell everyone their problems at once instead of actually calling one of their friends.

Before the Internet was so huge, all the drama bull crap was still a normal occurrence, it's just that you wouldn't hear about it unless it directly affected you or someone very close.
