A 71-year-old man made the trip back to his old college…

 

… to take one last look around campus again before he settled in to retired life.

 

As he got to the campus he saw a young man studying hard, and the sight brought back memories.

 

He sat on the bench beside the lad, but was surprised when the kid started spouting off at him.

 

β€œYou old geezer. Your generation will never understand my generation,” the kid lectured. β€œYou grew up in a different world. In fact, your world is almost primitive compared to mine,” the student said.

 

β€œIs that right?” the elder man said.

 

β€œThe young people of today grew up with television, jet planes, space travel, microwaves.Β  I can carry hundreds of books on a tiny chip in my cell phone.Β  We have nuclear energy, electric and hydrogen cars, computers with light-speed processing, and,” he paused to take swig of beer.

 

The senior took advantage of the break in the student’s litany and said,

 

β€œYou’re right, son.Β  We didn’t have those things when we were young – so we invented them. Now, you arrogant little bastard, what are you doing for the next generation?”

 

The student fell completely silent and all the people around them cheered!
