I know it is natural for older people to complain about the younger generation. “In my days, it was different”.
As I did not grow up in Japan, I do not know how it was 20 years ago.
But three incidents this morning make me feel like there is a problem.
- Guy in the train, standing behind me, watching his cell phone. Head down, does not try to support himself, but just create pressure on me and other people around
- Boarding Marunouchi line, a guy pushed me brutally from behind and then asides just to get a better place to stand in the train
- A young man in Tull’s ordered coffee, but eating bread from a plastic bag he purchased somewhere else. Really?
Is it the season ? is it that I am less patient today? Is it the generation?
