There's an Ancient Greek quote often misattributed to philosopher Socrates about the youth of the time, which reads: "The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise.

"Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room.

"They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers."

No doubt if you showed that to your parents or grandparents they would probably, without realising the irony, agree with exactly what they had to say.

And so, no doubt, would self-styled 'thinkfluencer' Simon Sinek, who recently appeared on an American talk show Inside Quest to discuss 'entitlement' of millennials in a video which has since gone viral.

Here's what he had to say...

"Too right, young people today are so entitled, they never put in any graft and they're obsessed with their bloody smart phones", I imagine your da' saying.
