In the band I'm playing in, the three older clarinet players all take time to swab the bores and dry the tenons and sockets of their instruments before putting them away. The rest are young people, all college students, and they don't do any of that. Most or all of them are studying music and play quite well. Before we oldsters get our cases closed, they're all packed up, and they've got all the stands and chairs put away, and most of them have vamoosed. I wonder how they see us.

Which reminds me of another story, and being off-topic isn't going to hold me back. I was paying for an order at the drive-through window of a fast food place, and I'd found I had the right change, so when I drove up I handed the young cashier the exact amount. As he handed me the receipt, he said he'd noticed that the only people who paid the exact amount were my age.
