The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - UP FRONT -

“Make me toast”, “Take me to the shops to buy a Nerf Zom­bie Strike air gun”. Went to­bog­gan­ing in the Alps, then spent the day bad­ger­ing their par­ents about why they couldn’t go ski­ing – they sound like spoiled brats! (Susie O’Brien, July 12-13)

I’m Gen-X and it sounds like the same “sum­mer hol­i­days” you’d get in UK, where some kids (the posh ones) went to Greece or Italy and some kids were lucky to get Black­pool or Wales. If you com­plained, you were told how lucky you were, and if you said “I'm bored”, then there was al­ways the re­ply “I can find you some work to do!” Mike via SA Weekend on­line
