You might think that kids today are entitled and self-absorbed, too busy watering their virtual tomatoes and tweeting their breakfast to know the meaning of hard work. But every now and again a story comes out that seems to bust this myth. The latest comes from Arizona, where a police officer pulled over a teenager who was walking down the street late at night.

Phoenix Police Sgt. Natalie Simonick, 46, spotted a young man walking alone through a desolate neighborhood at 11 p.m. When she asked him what he was doing, Christian Felix, 18, replied that he'd missed the bus, so he was walking the nine miles home from his job at McDonald's, reports local station KNXV.
