I hate it when my professors start talking about how things used to be or make really old pop culture references and I'm the only one in the class of 150 that knows what they're talking about.

I remember how that felt, good times.
I just sat through a training that was supposed to show what baby boomers, gen x, and millennials each bring to the workplace. They attributed pretty much all my adolescent and teen memories to millennials who would have been in diapers or unborn, distributed most of the positive things thrown out to boomers and millennials, and I walked away with the impression that I and everyone I grew up with are a bunch of cynical a$%&*!×s. I hate it when corporate training and policy repeatedly forgets that I exist.
 
I hate it when I give, what I think, is a brilliant week of lectures to my 7th graders complete with appropriate videos, photographs, practical labs, demonstrations and reviews and then I give a test and find out that I am apparently Charlie Brown's teacher.........
That's a tough age group to teach since forever. Hormones raging, not a kid anymore, but not really mature either. Then compound that with electronics, smartphones, looser parenting, etc.--you've got a hands full!
