Take This Job . . .

Typically, younger folks are supposed to respect their elders and learn from them. Sometimes, though, the roles are reversed.

Older country music fans might remember "Take This Job and Shove It" by Johnny Paycheck back some time in the '70s.

There's been sort of a higher-tech re-enactment, as it were a spin-off, of this.

Awhile back, Jackson Racicot, 17, of Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada, was working for Walmart. One day, Jackson decided to twist off from the retail giant in a great, if not unusual, way. He proceeded to get on the store's intercom and announce the following: "Attention all shoppers, associates and management, I would like to say, to all of you today, that nobody should work here -- ever."

All Walmart-haters will love it.

Some observers, old and otherwise, might even receive the actions of Racicot as an item to be added to their bucket list.

For some reason, the song "Shape of Things" by The Yardbirds also comes to mind. Specifically, the lyric line "Come tomorrow, may I be bolder than today?" Older folks may remember it.

This Racicot kid rocks.

Here is an instance where older generations can learn from the younger; call it a "Me-Too" opportunity. But that's just one opinion.

While there are surely important labor-related issues involved here, the basic takeaway seems funnier and more inspiring, whatever one's economic/political orientation.

But in any event, let us go forth, and come tomorrow, may we be bolder than today . . .
