This entire summer the kids next door have been inside playing video games.
They never leave the house.
During the school year they come tearing up the stairs after classes, turn on the TV set and play video games until it’s bed time. I hear them every day. I hear them now every day.
It’s pretty sad.
I had an Atari which I bought with my own money when I was a kid. I was not allowed to play it all day, just an hour or so at a time.
TV? Sure, we could watch TV but only at night, only pre-approved programs and only 4 or 5 hours a week. That’s it.
And never tell my mother your bored - you’d be put to work right away.
Do teenagers even have Summer jobs any more?
