you may have a point! young people today are very protected. Almost dependent on their parents and superiors for just about anything. Recently, had an intern who specialises in marketing, yet don't know (and not interested) to solve some minor IT issues. Claims that he didn't major in IT BTW, the IT problem I was talking about is change the printing desitation to the correct printer. that simple.
