Christy Wampole identifies the primary reason she feels modern young people adopt an “ironic” persona as the lack of culture the generation has to offer. As she describes her reasons for feeling this way, her statements could be classified as a claim of value, and in my opinion, it is not very convincing.

I know you too. “Yeah, that’s me…” she responded. I replied with an apology: “I’m really sorry I don’t what came over me, I’m very happy to see you again, if I’m being quite honest”. She forgave me. We began talking, and I began falling for her.
I open my mouth, but no words come out, All I want to do is run away and pout. I shiver, and stumble, and stutter, and sweat, All the while thinking, "Is this over yet?"
