I’m sure you’ve watched some of these competition shows. There’s one in particular that’s a singing competition where probably most of the contestants are in their teens or early twenties.
Have you ever noticed how many times they say something like: “I’ve been working so hard for this all my life!”
Are you kidding me? ALL THEIR LIFE??!!
Or, they’ll say something like: “If I don’t succeed now, I don’t know what I’ll do!”
Is 16 years old the new retirement age?
I remember one guy who was probably around 25 and currently working in construction. He said something like: “I have to make it now because I just can’t handle working like this anymore.”
OMG! Try working 40-50 years in the same job and then talk to me!
These kids have no idea how good they have it these days just to be on national TV and have a chance like that.
Don’t get me wrong. I like these shows and I think a lot of the talent is great and I enjoy it. But, stop with the whining about how your life will be over if you don’t succeed on the show.
