Comment: EP litter reminds us that every generation is filthy and messy
There are certain inescapable patterns in life - we don't mean to follow them, it just happens that way.
For example, no matter how young at heart you may feel, there's a good chance that by the time you've hit 30 you've started kvetching about the younger generation.
By the time you've hit 16, you've started moaning that the oldsters had everything handed to them on a plate and no generation - absolutely none! - has ever had to go through the angst and problems that your generation, and your generation alone, face.
