Values are Different These Days
I have been asked “what’s with all these FB posts on clothing at school that you are whining about ? Get over it”. It must be a generational thing. I was taught that you should have respect for the educational establishment in which you were studying. That you show up on time, dressed appropriately and behave in a manner befitting a student at your level.
It’s been shocking to me that the youth of today show little of the same values. The more mature students are never the ones that I complain about. They get it.
The amount of skin that I am seeing on campus shocks me. I don’t think any of it has to do with my religious values. Personally, even if I chose to dress the way I wanted to, I would never wear shorts that barely cover my behind, or clothes that really leave absolutely nothing to the imagination. But even if I did, would I dress like that to go to school? It just seems wrong to me.
A guy was sitting in class today, shirtless. Yes, it was nice to look at (hey, I’m married, not dead) but was it appropriate in a class setting? Professor asked him to put a shirt on, and he complied – but I felt it was wrong that he needed to be asked.
Some of my classes are 50 minutes long. Some students walk in a half hour late. At college level, should they not be taking their studies seriously?
I feel like I am turning into such a fuddy duddy.
