What IS The Problem With Kids these days?

Right, things have completely collapsed in the general area where I am now living.

I was politely informed by a decent enough clerk that I was 'old school' because I come from a culture where we actually rig our own web harnessing. So he advised me that I would probably need to go to an REI or the like. Found that I could find one. Laughed with the clerk who has the rolls of proper product, and we both had a laugh at the neat stuff, until one paused to 'do the math'. I mean that cute combo sling, is cute, and a combo sling, but like WHAT? Your Hand was broken alll winter?

Don't americans know how to do anything anymore on their own?

So then having found some of the kit that I need, I was wandering around looking for the right colour of strung pink thread, don't ask, there is a young lady involved, I felt that it would be the appropriate solution to do it all up in 'girlie cute pink', sort of a vindictive thing, don't ask.

And NOW I find out that folks do not sew, that we are down to only a handful, if at all, sorts of stores that actually sell fabric, and thread, and the technical equipment to actually maintain one's own web harnessing!!!

I mean What Next?

Am I going to learn that kids these days no longer know how to get from Iron Ore to their own home rolled Steel????
