For the most part, they prefer crimes to be committed so that they can then illustrate how totally useless they are in dealing with the offences caused.
- The local youth. They seem to have little or no regard for others. The way they talk is comical yet tragic and it fast becomes apparent that they must have been Truant Champions. Their dress sense is pretty bizarre too. With jeans and tracksuit bottoms hanging for dear life at their knees whilst indulging society to a glimpse of their boxers which are just crying out for soap powder.
Well observed Kadir, I'm sure you'll be able to offer some more suggestions.
The youth, sorry yoof, of today seems to be a recurring topic of complaint and their attitude seems to be getting worse. I know we look at the past through rose tinted glasses but when I was younger the only way to get money was to get a good job and work hard. Nowadays kids want you've got but without the graft. Worse still is when you get sneered at for suggesting some overtime or out of town working. It always seems to interfere with drinking, partying or football on a Saturday dinnertime.
