Fear of Young People is Known as “Ephebiphobia”. This seems like a silly condition, but according to sociologists and psychologists, it’s surprisingly widespread and can show itself in a wide range of ways, from the “in my day…” tut-tutting about teenagers’ behavior to restricting our own children’s activities. It is also a condition long-experienced by society’s adults. One professor studying the subject points to a quote from Plato: “What is happening to our young people? They disrespect their elders, they disobey their parents. They ignore the law. They riot in the streets, inflamed with wild notions. Their morals are decaying. What is to become of them?”
According to an arrest report, a man who stuffed a large Angus beef rib roast worth $62 down the front of his pants at a Florida supermarket had his alleged meat heist spoiled by an alert store employee. Cops say that 40-year-old Eric Worden jammed a seven-pound rib roast into his pants and then sought to exit a Publix supermarket in Parrish, a Tampa suburb. But Worden’s rib bid late last month was thwarted by a Publix manager who approached the accused thief to “challenge him about the roast concealed in his pants.” “Alright, you got me,” Worden reportedly declared as he “removed the roast before fleeing out the exit doors” around 8:30 a.m. He was subsequently apprehended in the shopping plaza where Publix is located. Worden was charged with misdemeanor theft and booked into the county jail. Now free on $500 bond, Worden has pleaded not guilty to the misdemeanor count. Worden has a lengthy rap sheet, which includes time in state prison for burglary. (https://bit.ly/2IVlZHa)
