Young men, on rudeness

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.

  1. 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
  2. Boarding Marunouchi line, a guy pushed me brutally from behind and then asides just to get a better place to stand in the train
  3. 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?
