Kids today… Waterbury young folks not afraid of a little hard work

Posted on Thursday, March 2, 2017 by No comments yet

“To all, I found help moving the boxes. To those who responded, thank you very much. I can’t believe the number of offers!!! Apparently, there are still many folks, especially the young and healthy, who are willing to help out a neighbor, do a bit of manual labor and make a few bucks. This is very refreshing as ‘we’ often hear that the ‘kids’ just want to play with their electronics and not work as most of us ‘Baby Boomers’ did in our youth. Kudos to all of the young folks who responded and especially their parents who have taught them that a little hard work is good for them.”
