what is with teenager these days with such bad temper? today in the gym, a father/son whom we've never seen invited us for a game. it was a simple match, nothing too closely fought, both our opponents are decent player with decent shots but perhaps lacking a bit in consistency. which is fine, usually, it is very common. but after a few points and a few mistake, the son, probably in the mid to late teens starts cursing at himself. later on after missing a few more shots, started whacking the floor with his racket. seriously, it is just a game, every one of us have loss games before, we do it every week. we have bad days before, happens to me every day. it is just part of playing the game, enjoy and have fun. after a few whacks, i think the kid have cracked the racket. then he kinda realized what he has done and the father had a few words with him and he calmed down on the second game. i guess we all have gotten through that stage in life before, a bit brash while we were young, but i think kids these days seems to be worse. maybe life is just too good and comfy, with everything provided for.
