I am ashamed of kids now because they some the most annoying things ever

The Top Ten Things Wrong With Kids Today

1 Hipster kids

I'm 11 and be cool isn't my goal. All I care about is if it's fun/important not cool. It's okay if somebody doesn't think I'm as cool as somebody else. - Jake09

Being "cool" is a social custom belief that everyone is jealous of only because they are valued too high. - 0w0uwu

They act like they are cooler than other kids just because they are different, but they are actually much more annoying.

I Like to be a happy go lucky guy! - RobloxBFDIPoke223

Yes. This is finally number 1.

2 Listening to old bands

I listen to a lot of old bands, and nothing is wrong with me... Is there? - Wolftail

Not unless you go onto YouTube videos and brag about how much different you are and try to be loved by people. - poncho531

What the hell is this?! I think the correct term is "Listening to NEW Bands! "

Yeah. Those nostalgiatards complaining how they were born in the wrong generation just makes me cringe. - JoeBoi

I'm over 50 now and when I was younger I was listening to mid-sixties garage punk bands ( and I still do ). Meaning that when I was fifteen I listened to fifteen year old music. Many others of my generation did that also. My point is that this is NOT a wrong attitude of nowadays kids. It has always been. And like they say ; age doesn't count for good music.

3 Making references to old shows or movies without knowing what they are referencing

Yep. If they've seen it, then fine, no problem.
If they don't know what it is... ARGH

Let me guess: The person who put this on here is a person who has an attitude like this: "You weren't alive then. So you're not allowed to enjoy and reference something." What even made you think that they don't know what they are referencing? - LordDovahkiin

Pickle Rick should be exterminated from the face of earth - RobloxBFDIPoke223

Hey guys I found the Boomer. - ThatIntrovertedEmo

4 Play games too much


I love playing a lot! - Neonco31

Ah boo hoo. I can play masterpieces like Garfield Kart all I want. - B1ueNew

How is this a bad thing? - DarkBoi-X

5 Staying up till midnight

Who the hell cares?! The only time, this might be a issue is on school nights. - OnlyInDreams

We're kids a lot of the time we improve with age and experiance we're not perfect but that's what makes us humans no kid is perfect and no adult is

What's wrong with this? As long as you get a good nights sleep, I think its fine.

So? As if this is important, and there is something wrong with this? School literally gives too much useless work nowadays. So that's to be expected. - LordDovahkiin

6 Always on Facebook or other social media

Sorry I hate social media - 2storm

Most of the teens and high-school students I see walking on the road are using social media, They're EVERYWHERE! - Neonco31

Who said this? I mean, I don't care for social media, but over half of the people on it are adults, I assure you. - LordDovahkiin

Not allowed to be on social media until next year. - Anonymousxcxc

7 Special Snowflake Syndrome

Are you putting all kids under this category? Cause I assure you, only little kids think this. - LordDovahkiin

If you don't know what it is, you definitely have it.

What the heck is that? - creed99


8 Acting slutty

I already know 9 girls who are pretty much gonna grow up to be prostitutes

Well... I don't see any difference between girls of 17 and 10 years old because they know - Ananya

I have never, ever seen a kid act like this. Plus, if they act like this, it's the parents fault for letting them act like that. - LordDovahkiin

I had to vote this, and its sad this is a thing. People in my school act like this all the time. a lot of my classmates act too perverted, even some of the girls got twerking videos online. ;-; This should at least be in the top five.

9 Will go to food places and order coffee

So what? Kids get tons of homework since middle school! I didn't go to Starbucks to look cool I did it to do homework. - Gre

Most kids (mostly teens) drink coffee to stay awake (Because the education system is garbage and they give you too much work that you can't get enough hours of sleep), not to act cool. - Rue

I'm sorry, its trying to get through the day on -3 hours of sleep! - keycha1n

Nothing wrong with this. Let me guess, "Oh! Coffee is an adults drink! ' (1) Not true. And (2) Some of you think that they do it to look cool. That's not the case. - LordDovahkiin

10 Backtalk parents or people of authority

I think they should be allowed to backtalk as long as it's not insulting.

They only do this because they are immature and barely disciplined. - JoeBoi

Most of those people don't show them respect. Respect goes both ways. They don't respect those people because they don't respect them. - LordDovahkiin

My cat did that to my mom!

The Contenders

11 They want to be right

I don't want to be wrong, what's wrong with that? - Skullkid755

Yes yes I most almost totally agree!

Everyone wants to be right. - LordDovahkiin

12 Sexually active

Kids these days are perverts, It's sad.

Woah... That is not true (mostly) dumbasses. - LordDovahkiin

That sgould definitely had been 1. - Johnalove

My classmates think I’m dating my friend and they also think I’m lesbian/bisexual. That’s a strange thing to think about. 🤷🏻‍♀️ - Misfire

13 Thinks that they are going to grow up successful without an education

I could theoretically drop out and pursue art full-time. But I wont. Because I need an education to fall back on and also cause I want to go to college and double major... - keycha1n

Aren’t there things that are important that you will only be taught in school? - JoeBoi

I want to be an orthopedic surgeon and I sure as hell know that I need to go through so much school... this isn't true and whoever put this here is trash. mostly every teenager knows they need to go to college if they want to survive in the world.

It's definitely possible to become rich/successful without high school or college but it's better to just go through it. - Ajkloth

14 Dating at a very young age

People start dating when they're like ten nowadays! Honestly, this is adolescence, we're all trying to find ourselves, we shouldn't be trying to find someone else. Be a "me" before you're a "we". - keycha1n

Kids these days cry about breaking up with their boyfriend or girlfriend. When I was their age I cried about missing the morning cartoons

I started dating in 2nd Grade. I think that was a BIT too early. But I didn't cry because I missed the morning cartoons. I cried because I slept too early and missed the NIGHT cartoons. - AlphaQ

I'm 11 and I won't date until 16. - Jake09

15 They cry to get whatever they want

This is what little kids do. - LordDovahkiin

Only little kids do that. - DarkBoi-X

16 Consuming inappropriate media

Some parents these days shouldn't be raising kids. They don't even care at this point. I hear about parents letting their 3 year old kids being able to watch stuff like south park (example) all the time. Maybe that's one of the reasons kids now are so messed up.

Kids aren’t mature enough to be watching shows like Family Guy and South Park because of the fact that kids may mimic the things that happen in those shows. - JoeBoi

Jesus Christ. Please define "inappropriate." Now, it seems everything is inappropriate except rainbows and unicorns. - LordDovahkiin

My friends made me learn inappropriate things 19 months ago I barely knew anything inappropriate to be honest I wish I never knew blame my friends

17 Brainwashed by the media

A lot but not all. - LordDovahkiin

18 Always on their phones texting

AKA the majority of Americans - ONHOLIDAY

Anyone, and everyone. - LordDovahkiin

Or anyone - ONHOLIDAY

19 Bad taste in music

Music is a very subjective thing. People will like whatever music they want, not everyone has the same opinion on everything ya know? - OnlyInDreams

Not all are like that. Just most of em. - LordDovahkiin

so true

20 Constantly playing M games

I'm 13, and play Skyrim and sometimes Fallout 4. And it hasn't affected me at all. I am actually very mature for my age. Plus, deal with children playing M games. Not like complaining about it on a list website would put a stop to it. In fact, most of these items on here I don't do. Some of them (not the bad or ridiculous ones) I do.

I agree with this one! It depends on the kid's maturity but most kids are super immature for their age. So in general I'll disapprove it - Jake09

Because of this, all the people at my school are complete sociopaths. Thank you, idiot parents!

Call of Duty, God of War, And Rainbow Six Siege are awesome M Games. - B1ueNew

21 Acting obnoxious at school but in public they're normal

It's school. Of course they will be obnoxious. Because school "teaches" filler. 50% of EVERYTHING you learn in school is just filler nowadays. - LordDovahkiin

Now this should be at number 1. - Anonymousxcxc

I'm 15 and don't act like this everyone else in my school does I want to swear at them for it - Ihateschool

What? A lot of kids around here act obnoxious EVERYWHERE

22 They will never know how Pikachu and Charizard were jerks in the beginning of Pokemon.

90's kid alert! 90's kid alert! Listen visitor, not all kids of today are like that. Some of us grow--and have grown up--in well educated families. We are not the stupid little hipster, ghetto, vain, and uncaring people you make us out to be. I don't care where you come from (probably a broken home yourself, by the way you're acting), but some of us are actually good. Now if you excuse me I have to read my lateset book "Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH" while you sit there and anonymously type bad things about people in your little close minded bubble of thoughts. Have a nice life Mr. Visitor. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

Because not knowing something that happened in a time where they weren't born in when it comes to a fictional franchise means that there is something horribly wrong with them. /sarcasm - Rue

How is this relevant? What if they DO know, and like them still? Y'all are stupid. - LordDovahkiin

23 Thinking they're cool because of shoes / phones

Kids are so spoiled into wanting to buy the latest phone because they’re so jealous since their friends already have one. - JoeBoi

This has been a thing for a long time though. - Rue

Look at mah shoes. - DarkBoi-X

No one except elementary/Pre-K think this. - LordDovahkiin

24 Acting dumb but are really smart

Yeah there is someone who does that in my school - 2storm

How is this bad? Adults (a lot of them, anyway) are actually dumb. At least these kids are smart. - LordDovahkiin

25 Do drugs because they think it's cool
26 Speak in slang words constantly

Since when? I try to use full grammatically correct sentences, even when texting. - LordDovahkiin

As long as the recipient can understand, it’s not much of an issue. - Kwaysar

27 Tide Pod Challenge
28 Fidget Spinners

These aren't really even a thing anymore. The fad is gone. - LordDovahkiin

Just... Fidget spinners. - TimmyHeadNose

29 They take sports way too seriously

As well they should take sports seriously. What do you EXPECT them to goof around and play? Of course you don't. You expect them to try their best. - LordDovahkiin

30 People think they are brainwashed by the media.
31 They hate The Beatles and love Nicki Minaj

You just said earlier that listening to old bands is a bad thing... now you’re saying listening and loving The Beatles is a good thing despite it being an old band? Hmm... - Misfire

Nicki Minaj isn't even relevant anymore.

32 They think all EDM is "retarded" but they treat Fortnite like a god

Why are you comparing a music genre to a video game? - ThatIntrovertedEmo

33 They write fanfiction
34 They love Let it Go
35 They play little more than Call of Duty, Minecraft or FIFA

Not true. Kids play other games. Like Fallout, Skyrim, and Minecrap's underrated cousin Terraria. (Which is much better.) - LordDovahkiin

Add fortnite there. - B1ueNew

36 People making up stupid slurs "Special Snowflake"
37 People bash their taste in music to look cool.
38 They try to act ghetto to be cool

Every kid nowadays are fake wannabe, trashy rappers.

39 Poor taste in music

AGAIN music is subjective! - OnlyInDreams

40 They are addicted to sugar
41 They like the trashy new rappers that cant even act right
42 Young ones are illiterate
43 They are mean
44 They Say "Ok Boomer" Not Even Knowing What a Baby Boomer Is

A baby boomer is someone born between 1946 and 1964. - RoseWeasley

45 Bringing guns to school
