Have Respect!

1/28/2009   Comment on This

I realize I'm from the old school, but respect should not have a time frame attached to it. In recent days and weeks, I've noticed that it seems to be the younger generation from 25-35 that has this unbelievable entitlement issue going.

It's worse from the younger adults under 25, but I have to deal with the 25-35 age group in my daily radio life. They act as though I am their peer and respecting an elder is a thing of the past. I think it is the thing of the past with them.

Case in point: I had this intern who came in last Friday. He is 26 and is trying to break into the business. He acted like he was the host. An intern is like a pledge in a fraternity house. They are grunts, period. The funny thing is, I don't treat them as such. I can get my own coffee, thank you, and put things in my own car. However, if I don't like something, don't give me any lip.

This disrespectful yoyo had his hat on backwards. When I told him I didn't like the cap on backwards and it wasn't professional, he said "I like it" and gave me a dirty look and just kept going. He referred to me as JOHN Pinkus. Who? The whole night, he paid me no mind and acted like he was the man.

Where is the respect? The younger generation doesn't have any clue about how to play the "game".

Do you get respect? Contact me to let me know.
