Chris Evans is explaining how as we get older, we tend to find more things to get annoyed about, and to get more annoyed by the things that have always annoyed us. Indignation is an anger or a strong annoyance that comes from the perception of being treated unfairly.

Arnold H. Glasow quotes about the facts of life (and fish):

This quote gets interpreted in different ways. Some say that it means that it’s pointless to try to tell teens about life, but others will say this quote explains how it might seem pointless or unnecessary but it actually isn’t. It could also be saying that teens are already so entrenched in the facts of life, at least their own lives, that you’re trying to explain and teach them about something that they’re already surrounded by. Quotes about teens are always open for interpretation. Margaret Baldwin has expanded on this quote, according to the Upside Down Organization , and her longer version is: “Teaching, guiding and influencing teens is like giving a fish a bath. Teens will often see your efforts as unnecessary, burdensome and unwanted. But, in the end, they will remember the energy, enthusiasm and fun you put into bath time.”

Telling a teenager the facts of life is like giving a fish a bath.
