i was in macy's yesterday, when in walks a gaggle of 12/13 year old girls giggling and being generally very... 12/13 years old. i was walking down the escalator, which was broken/immobile, but still accessible.
the girls walked down behind me. in the midst of all their giggling & chatting, i heard one of them say, "sorry for the convenience".
that made me smile. there may be hope for america's youth yet.
