douchebags

It seems to be a fad nowadays for the young people to act like consummate douchebags. I duly blame it on the internet, for turning them into the way they despicably are.

Just the other day, I saw what appears to be a bunch of college students that became especially animated when they saw some coin operated kiddy rides in the mall. They acted like they’ve never seen one before. A lanky dipshit in the group then climbed into one of the kiddy rides – which was obviously too small for him – and started to make his best impression of being funny by sticking out a tongue / crossed his eyes like he had palsy or something like that. About half a dozen of his male + female friends began to laugh hysterically like it was the funniest thing ever and they each whipped out a phone camera and started to snap some pictures away, while the afore said male subject posed with even more handicapped expressions, much to the amusement of the group.

I reckon that probably half of them would post the pictures up on their Facebook profile to complement their farm animals/vegetables snapshots from their online farm game, outlining the perceived fun they had at the mall to their hordes of similarly retarded and easily amused virtual friends – whom I also reckon, happen to be active participants of Earth Hour and believers that mass forwarding emails could save someone’s life.

I can’t help but wonder – “Is it really that amusing?”. I don’t know what the fuck’s wrong with them. It would have been totally sensible if they’re drunk, but they’re not. They’re just being what they are – attention seeking douchebags. The internet has undoubtedly churned out a generation of young people with fucking detestable behaviors that I find hard to accept. These people would do anything to get themselves some attention. Sporting loathsome hairstyles, retching sense of fashion, adopting fake accents, having the compelling urge to act like a dickhead at any given opportunity, type their messages like this –> doUchEBaGs LoLz ^__^. When they don’t get a chance to be with their gang of mental cripples, they’d camwhore with their cameras/phones – with fucked up poses like excessive pursing of the lips, poking of the face, close up shots to disproportionate the upperhead to look cute, etc.

Fucking hell.

I think I am becoming more and more antisocial because of people like them. I can feel the widening gap between myself and the society, like an EOL piece of appliance from the past, in a demanding world of drivers/OS with redundant graphics, blue screens and malware worms. My wife says that this is a healthy cycle between the older generation and the young. When people get old, they’d naturally find it hard to accept the culture that young people adopt. And vice versa.

Maybe it is true, that this is all about getting old. The thing is, I have just turned 33 a few weeks back, and if the difference of mere 16 – 17 years is gonna cause me to flare up like this, then I can’t imagine what I’d be when I become a really old fart (eg. when I’m in my 60’s). I’d probably be wearing a restrainer mask like Hannibal Lecter.

    The poses on the kiddy rides would be adorable if they were 3 year olds. Not when they are 17. I think they lost their childhood in the cyber world, so they are trying to make up for it in real life.

    not your fault bro, im 17 and i find majority of people my age acting like fags…

    Just my two cents.

    Actually, I don’t think the internet is to be blamed for this. Attention-seeking teenagers (as well as adults) have existed since time immemorial. When I was a teenager and Facebook (or Friendster) does not exist, I saw peeps do these things too.

    And also, those who are playing Farmville are mostly 35 year old females as reported by Mashable, not really teenagers.

    Its even more fucking annoying when you have to see them on a daily basis; I work in a private university and more often than not, I have to try REALLY hard to suppress murderous desires when I see the antics you’ve mentioned. Some of the things I come across; 1. Girls talking at the top of their voices and saying “OHMYGAWWWWWWWWWWWD!!!” every 3 seconds, 2. douche-tastic hairdos and dressing which tempts me to ask them “Ey, y’all going for classes or going clubbing?!”, 3. camwhoring at every.single.opportunity, 4. a super-duper combo of all 3 e.g. douches eating at the cafeteria and 1 fag spills something on the table upon which bimbos go “OHMYGAWWWWWWWWWWWD!!!” and take out their phones to photograph the said ‘disaster’… :/

    Summary : Self-important, unsecure, narcissistic attention seeking cam whores.

    The mindset is really different for those born in 70s and 80s, and 90s even further different. Anyway, it is really ‘pek chek’ to see those clowns in actions, I hope my children don’t become like them.

    waaa we are of the same age…don’t worry i’m going over this period of grumpiness also.

  10. evil_gal says:

    feel your pain too… but it’s really not a generation/age gap. I’m 22 now and I’m being questioned by fellow douches on why am I not acting like a douche like them, i.e: camwhoring and sharing my life on facebook. And people ask why am I being antisocial…

    I tell you, man… it’s MTV and Lady Gaga etc.
