Or wine! <BEG>  I can *so* relate.  My two 27-yo sons are just like what
you describe - "out there somewhere".  For crying out loud, one is
living at home (again).  Grrrr!!!  But, on the bright side, my 22-yo son
is doing pretty well for himself, a nice SO, and a new granddarling
(boy) on the way.  I think it just depends on the kid's temperament.

I don't know, mine aren't so bad. DD2 is 27 (DD1 is 31 so doesn't qualify
any more) and has supported herself for several years. They never forget to
phone when it counts. Never been in trouble with the law, no addictions to
alcohol, tobacco or narcotics, one has a doctorate and the other a master's.
My only complaint is the distinct lack of grandchildren, but I guess they
still have time.

...Yeah, Kids!!...Why I remember back in the 20's when the girls ran
wild and took off their corsets and bobbed their hair!!

Yessir, we got TROUBLE!   Right here in River City!  With a capitol T
and that rythmes with P and that stands for pool!!

Yes, all young people are disrespectful, and thoughtless---Plato wrote
something about it way back when.  They have to believe that they are
unbreakable.---If they knew what life holds in store for them through
the years to come--they would be too discouraged to go on.  They will
either learn--or not, just as every generation before them has.

Judy,
  I definitely agree with you on this.  My son would never say anything,  but I
caught him rolling his eyes at me a few times.  I told him that "that"  was
just as bad as saying something.  <grin>
   Thinking back many years-  my mom was probably thinking the same thing.

    Whenever I read something like this, I just remember the graffiti
that archeologists have found in Roman ruins, in which people complain
about the state of society and the way their children behave....

The best bit of Roman graffiti I heard of was on a wall in Pompeii
which said "don't pee here because the nettles grow too high"
