Chevrolet: Working hard at training up the next generation of zombies
Make that "training up the next generation of witless, dullard, socially isolated children who must be constantly drugged/hypnotized by electronic devices. With the help of pathetically useless adults who for some reason had children but can't be bothered to actually communicate with them or attempt to keep them entertained so must drive around in WiFi-equipped cars and provide each of their spawn with their own glowing screens."
Somehow, the kids of my generation managed to take long distance car rides by playing word games and listening to the radio and having actual conversations with our actual parents (back then, parents weren't there just to drive the car and provide the electronics.) Nowadays it seems that kids can't even be in the same room with those parents without those electronics for fear of a tantrum (or a conversation) breaking out. Just imagine what these kids are going to be like when they are adults and they've been weaned on a steady diet of instant-gratification electronic junk. I dare you.
Thanks, Chevy, for not being satisfied with not being part of the solution, but insisting on being part of the problem. And thanks, Mom and Dad, for having me be born long before this ridiculous era.
