For a long time I felt relieved that I had no children who would have to face the future.
But now I find myself thinking about the people to come who will be "like me" - those who may not be biological relations but who will be emotionally, socially like me.
In the possible societies that I see coming I fear greatly for them.

I see people out with dogs who not only allow, but actually encourage them to bark.
They call this "playing" with the dog.
That fact that this can disturb anyone who is walking, working or living, sleeping, reading nearby obviously never enters the heads of these self-focused nitwits.
When people are this self-centered and self-absorbed on such a local basis is it any wonder that there's so much seemingly unresolvable conflict in the world at large.

Why do so many girls/young women seem to believe that they don't have to move for anyone when they are on a sidewalk or a hallway in a building?
It's like they think they're on a fashion runway or a red carpet or something and they're so important that everyone should make way for them.
Boys can do this too, but usually only when they're in a pack. They're a little more polite when they're on their own.
I have also noted that, generally, the more "fashionably" a woman is dressed the more demanding and obnoxious her behaviour.
(By "fashionably" I don't mean nicely dressed, I mean wearing articles (often expensive) they have been told are "in" or "the latest" etc. These are also the type who will tend to wear way too much makeup and sport some tortured extreme hairstyle.)
