I DJ’ed at a nightclub last night, first time in 10 years and must say thoroughly enjoyed being back “in the booth”.
But I was appalled at the attitude of all the young kids, I must have had 30 odd requests during the night maybe more, not one of them said please, most of the time they just said things like:
“Yo mate have you got slam by pendulum yeah”
“drop some drum and bass mate yeah”
“Yo geezer stick on ‘wearing my rolex’ yeah!”
“are you gonna play some oldskool mate yeah”
Now most of them did not even ask me to play the tracks they just either asked me if I had it or said the name of the track?
And this yeah at the end almost every time to me is almost like a veiled threat of ‘you are going to play it or else’ type of attitude.
I got this from sober guys, drunk guys and girls alike.
I am not a prude I just hate this new attitude from the younger generation that feel like a slightly intimidating menacing manor will get them what they want, when all they have to do is be polite, but I guess it is not cool to be polite anymore
