Huh, strawberry gen? Yeah, that was my reaction too when I was told about these generation being named after quite a pretty & at many times sexy fruit. But that's not what it really means..
Well, yeah, they can act cute & all, but really, this strawberry generation are those who bruise easily (hurt easily), are extremely pampered & sheltered.. and are so self centred.
These maybe acceptable if they only mingle with the other strawberries, but the problem arise when they have to interact with others from different age groups. And the problem is more apparent when they are in employment.
While it is good to care for one's ownself, I notice that this generation can be so into themselves - where they do the things they like, pleasing no one else but just themselves, not even caring for their teammates or the company.
Their work are wishy washy, incomplete, even though much has been told on what needs to be done (and the rest to use one's heart & brains!).
To some of these strawberries, rules to them are not only to be bent, but also broken.. they don't listen.. and worst of all, some of them are rude to the extend of demanding - even on rights which are not meant to be given, until they are proven worthy of.
I've even encountered one strawberry who thinks that she is so highly capable when beneath her lies a very shallow & hollow person.. one in her own world! Yet, the things she demands makes as if she's the most qualified person not only in her batch, but one of the best say, in Malaysia! (seriously, like real like that!)
Though I am too from this mushy squashy generation, but I think some of us set the standards apart. In fact, there are many good ones out there as well - some way younger but have also achieved so much. If only the bulk of these strawberries can learn from the rest & prove that they too are one generation to be remembered apart from their oh too cutesy antics!
*This post is specially dedicated to the 2 bruised strawberries who I've encountered with.. which I think should be 'squashed' and made into strawberry juice! For the rest straweberries, please buck up.. or ur going into the blender too!
