In fairness, the woman gave a lot of good information as to the hows and whys different generations looked at the world around them as a function of their life experiences. Where most of us took issue with her was telling us "different" meant "wrong" and we needed to change to be correct.
That's the part that I found idiotic. But the newer generations always think that they are smarter than the older ones.

Being on time was always a huge thing in our home and a value I carried into work. BECAUSE, as we were told so often, it shows that you value the other person's time and it's a matter of respect.

Had a military (Marine) lifer uncle who, when we went to visit him in D.C., we quickly learned meant be ready 15 minutes early and be IN the car at the time mandated....not just walking towards the car, or getting ready to open the door...nope! Be IN THE CAR or you will be left standing on the driveway alone.
