Neither of the characters sound too appealing to me. At least the youngster suffered from a vanity appropriate to his age and inexperience. How does one explain the senior's rudeness? Couldn't he have drawn somewhat deeper from his well of experience to have said something beyond calling the kid an arrogant sh*t?

Just posing an alternate view. I am not too far from my AARP card and may be calling college freshmen arrogant sh*ts quite soon.

That was great! Of course, it could be that the young fellow is doing something amazing, and that will greatly benefit future generations.

When faced with "don't agree with", many people become misinterpret it as "don't understand". I think the whole young vs. old thing is a little overblown these days by the media.

It has been that way for every generation gap since the beginning of time.

"The children now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for authority, they show disrespect to their elders.... They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and are tyrants over their teachers." -Socrates

"The young people of today think of nothing but themselves. They have no reverence for parents or old age. They are impatient of all restraint. They talk as if they alone knew everything and what passes for wisdom with us is foolishness with them. As for girls, they are forward, immodest and unwomanly in speech, behaviour and dress." -Plato
