In a way I feel sorry for these guys. I know they are raised in less than optimal circumstances. They don't have nice homes, their parents probably didn't read to them much, and they were probably spoken to harshly as little kids. I've heard the way some of my parents speak to their young children. Also, I'm thinking there were probably not a lot of positive male role models for these kids as they grew up. Their car was pretty old and crummy and there's a good chance their vehicles will remain that way throughout their lives.
But another part of my brain wasn't so charitable and just thought of them as punks. They likely won't have or haven't had the modest amount of perserverance it takes to finish high school - less than 30% of the kids in my town who start high school finish it in four years - so will probably have crummy jobs, or no job, for much of the rest of their lives, . They think little of fathering children and expect the woman to worry about birth control, babies, and sexually transmitted diseases. They'll adopt the attitude that they are owed respect, even though they haven't done anything to earn it.
There's probably some truth in both the ways I think about them. I long ago reconciled myself to the fact that some of my patients today are tomorrow's reprobates. I take comfort, though, in the knowledge that some kids beat the odds and turn out well. Besides, everyone deserves some dignity and respect, just for being human. But I've got to stop giving people the finger, before I get shot or run off the road.
