A pet peeve of mine is when adults, typically middle aged + people, stereotype and generalize teenagers. They, a lot of the times, think that all teens don’t listen to their parents, don’t obey the rules, don’t make good decisions, etc. Most of the time, these generalizations are not true. People my age (with the exception of listen to their parents) are better than most of our parents. We might not have the experience, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t make educated decisions… and since we are in school, our minds are mentally more active than someone who does the same thing day after day.
What bothers me the most is when some older people will not only submissively push their authority on us, but will claim that they are superior. Just because your older doesn’t mean you’re smarter than me. Sure, I’ll listen to you and do what you tell me to do, but don’t say “I’m older than you, and I’m therefore smarter than you” or “I’m older than you, and I therefore have more common sense than you”. It might be true sometimes, but what’s the point of saying that. What are you trying to prove? When will I realize that I’m figuratively yelling at my blog?!
P.S. I am not referring to my parents.
