the menial men

can we please talk about the men (aka boys) that are in my age frame. 

what has happened to the youth of our nation? 

I go to a professional football game, on accounts of my father's business. And we sit in a suite. The suite normally rocks because of the food, but the real catch is that you are forced into a very small box with people, 'professionals' who are anything but! 

This time, there were a lot of men (boys) my age in the box. Interns, first years, etc. You know, still talking about their wild fraternity days and sporting their class rings. And what do all these men care about? First of all, not being polite and talking to me. Second of all, not even the game. I knew more about what was going on then they did, and that's really not that unlikely because I am a football obsessor, but still... shouldn't they be too? They are 'business men' after all. All they care about is the copious amounts of free alcohol they are entitled to because of sitting in a box, and whenever the 'cheerleaders' are on the big screen. it was really just... gross. luckily, the cheerleaders were wearing football jersey's that plain as day said 
CHEERLEADER 
on the back, because otherwise I would have been getting them confused with the players right and left. pah. 

the entire scene was just aggravating. I watched these men (boys) drown themselves, literally, in alcohol. They man (boy) sitting in the box next to us, however physically sitting right next to me, was on his 5th beer when we were leaving during the 3rd quarter. Now, I don't know a lot about alcohol, so I asked my Dad... 'is 5 of those cups of beers a lot of alcohol to ingest?' and he said 'um.. definitely'. 

It's just sad. What happened to chivalry? To romance? To having a good time, because you're having a good time. To talking to the pretty girl, instead of snickering with your pals and all glancing over at her in unison and making her feel like a billboard ad? WHERE ARE THE SANE MEN?

    That was a good turn of phrase.

    There are plenty of good looking young men who can enjoy themselves and respect/cherish/honor/serve women all at the same time. This particular breed you've confronted in this experience seems to discourage this idea, but they do exist. Cory's one of them, among others. The world is big, but they do exist.

  3. In general what you described is pretty much boys from 20-80 they don't change... UNLESS God gets a hold of them ... So when the right guy does come along its very easy to pick him out of all the idiots=)
