Just recently, I've had an experience that just reaffirms the fact that some (if not most) of the younger generation today have to learn a thing or two about respect.
I won't go into details, but a word of advice to newly-grads or college kids... don't be condescending towards people who are older than you. While it is true that in some cases age doesn't necessarily mean wisdom, it is also much truer that us older guys know much more than you do, especially if it is in an area where we have been working in for most of our adult life.
I'm only 33, but I've been in the advertising field for 12 YEARS. And I still try to learn more from people who have been in this business longer than me. I have a colleague who's been in this business for 12 years, too. So I can understand her... "rage" (for a lack of a better term)... when a fresh grad tells her how to do things as if they know everything there is to know about advertising.
12 FREAKING YEARS, people! Respect that, please. You may think that you're the hotshot new generation who's gonna be bringing something new or be that someone who's gonna revolutionize the industry or something. And you may be right. In all honesty, I hope that you'll be able to do that. But don't be cocky and arrogant. CONFIDENT, YES... @SSHOLE, NO.
They don't teach you this in school. But, really, do they have to?
