Re: We're all human
Whether you were born in 1995 or 1955, you have to earn respect in the workplace. It doesn't come with you when you walk in the door. You earn respect by demonstrating that you can at least perform the tasks you are paid to perform, and the more you exceed expectations the faster and greater respect for you will grow.
Despite all the political correctness and mollleycoddling these days, the life of an adult means acting like an adult, not like like a whining punk. That goes for everyone no matter their age or years in the workplace. Sure people should not abuse you or disrespect you just because you haven't had a chance to prove you are not worthless. But slack is granted as a gesture of patience, you don't have a right to it.
Oldies may not be adept at tech, but if you have a paying job when you are their age, then you might understand why youngsters should be seen and not heard. It's a tough world. Grow some callouses by working, and then someone might put some stripes on top of them.
