This is pretty funny. Long but funny

Ê When I was a kid adults used to bore me to tears
Ê with their tedious
Ê diatribes about how hard things were when they were
Ê growing up; what with
Ê walking twenty-five miles to school every morning
Ê uphill both ways through
Ê year 'round blizards carrying their younger siblings
Ê on their backs to
Ê their one-room schoolhouse where they maintained a
Ê straight-A average
Ê despite their full-time after-school job at the
Ê local textile mill where
Ê they worked for 35 cents an hour just to help keep
Ê their family from
Ê starving to death!
Ê And I remember promising myself that when I grew up
Ê there was no way in
Ê hell I was going to lay a bunch of crap like that on
Ê kids about how hard I
Ê had it and how easy they've got it!
Ê But....
Ê Now that I've reached the ripe old age of
Ê twenty-nine, I can't help but
Ê look aroud and notice the youth of today.
Ê You've got it so easy! I mean, compared to my
Ê childhood, you live in a
Ê damn Utopia! And I hate to say it but you kids
Ê today you don't know
Ê how good you've got it! I mean, when I was a kid we
Ê didn't have The
Ê Internet -- we wanted to know something, we had to
Ê go to the goddamned
Ê library and look it up ourselves!
Ê And there was no email! We had to actually write
Ê somebody a letter -- with
Ê a pen! --and then you had to walk all the way
Ê across the street and put it
Ê in the mailbox and it would take like a week to get
Ê there!
Ê And there were no MP3s or Napsters! You wanted to
Ê steal music, you had to
Ê go to the damn record store and shoplift it
Ê yourself! Or we had to
Ê wait around all day to tape it off the radio and the
Ê DJ'd usually talk over
Ê the begining and f@#* it all up!
Ê You want to hear about hardship? You couldn't just
Ê download porn! You had
Ê to bribe some homeless dude to buy you a copy of
Ê "Hustler" at the 7-11!
Ê Those were your options!
Ê We didn't have fancy shit like Call Waiting! If you
Ê were on the phone and
Ê somebody else called they got a busy signal! And we
Ê didn't have fancy
Ê Caller ID Boxes either! When the the phone rang, you
Ê had no idea who it was
Ê it could be your boss, your mom, a collections
Ê agent, your drug dealer, you
Ê didn't know!!! You just had to pick it up and take
Ê your chances, mister!
Ê And we didn't have any fancy Sony Playstation
Ê videogames with
Ê high-resolution 3-D graphics! We had the Atari 2600!
Ê With games like
Ê "Space Invaders" and "Asteroids" and the graphics
Ê sucked ass! Your guy was
Ê a little square! You had to use your imagination!
Ê And there were no
Ê multiple levels or screens, it was just one screen
Ê forever! And you could
Ê never win, the game just kept getting harder and
Ê faster until you died!
Ê Just like LIFE!
Ê When you went to the movie theater there no such
Ê thing as stadium seating!
Ê All the seats were the same height! A tall guy sat
Ê in front of you, you
Ê were screwed!
Ê And sure, we had cable television, but back then
Ê that was only like 20
Ê channels and there was no onscreen menu! You had to
Ê use a little book
Ê called a TV Guide to find out what was on! And there
Ê was no Cartoon
Ê Network! You could only get cartoons on Saturday
Ê morning... ...D'ya hear
Ê what I'm saying!?! We had to wait ALL WEEK, you
Ê spoiled little bastards!
Ê That's exactly what I'm talking about! You kids
Ê today have got it too easy.
Ê You're spoiled, I swear to God! You guys wouldn't
Ê lasted five minutes back
Ê in 1984!
