Although some people have used boredom for good use, there are always those who don’t. From the article listed above, you can see that boredom is an issue. The people in charge of making Montrose a better place have gone to far stretches to get the trouble making to stop. They have made an hangout place from kids to attend. The place included a dance floor, music, pool tables and a museum room. This attraction did not do its job. Only a reported 2 or 3 new teenagers would show up a night. They also made a night club hang out. They also had a dance floor, and they also served pizza! People in Montrose tried very hard to give the bored teenagers things to do.
‘When it seems as though there is very little to do, teenagers may turn to drinking and using drugs with friends to keep themselves occupied.’ - used in the article. This quote has pretty much my whole argument through out this blog. It is a very commonly thought after subject. In the very beginning of this article they are describing an everyday high school party. With a boy and girl making out on the couch, people playing beer pong, and of coarse others drinking too. All the sudden ‘local teenagers looking for a night of innocent fun, until the sound of, “Hey dude, grab a beer,” rises above the music.’. Maybe not everyone at the party was aware of what was going to go on that night. After releasing there was drinking, some might have felt pressured to stay, though they should not have. And lets be real, no one is going to ask everyone to pour their drinks down the drain, so the activities go on. Boredom that people tried to solve turned into teenagers not wanting to be helped. Therefore, ‘boredom leads to trouble’.
