You can take refuge in the knowledge that, when the zombie apocalypse comes, they will be one of the first to go.

"I wasn't told I should run from the zombies" with a shrug meant to gather sympathy over the flaw of someone else not giving them a step-by-step instruction is totally something they'd do.

It's disappointing because I know they're capable. I think some of it comes from a fear of making a mistake, so they put blinders on to anything not immediately pertinent and focus on just the task at hand.

There is an odd passivity to the upcoming generation(s). "Nobody told me (not) to..." is seen as a perfectly reasonable response to failure to execute on something, or self-harming actions.

It seems like this is a new thing, and not just me with my old-man glasses on...

It's a product of the way children have been taught and parented.

Blame, instead of responsibility.
