My daughter who is 19 years old is home from college.  Most parents of adolescents who return after their first year of college knows or expects fireworks.  My lovely daughter landed a job yesterday at K-Mart.  Hallelujah!   Fortunately, the store is less than 15 minutes away by car (depending on traffic).  I mentioned to my daughter yesterday; some days you may need to work an half a mile to the bus stop and catch the bus to work.  And we will pick you up after you get off.  I was surprised by my daughter’s response: “I am not riding the bus.”  I did a whip lash.  Are you kidding me?  I went through my past: I rode the bus to downtown in Kansas City; I rode the city bus to work; I rode the bus to a girl’s house.  I told my colleagues this morning and they verified something I already knew: there is an insidious pollutant in our culture among the young – it’s call entitlement!
