Millenials listen to their IPods like this: *wiggles arms*

But Gen-Xer's listen to their IPods like this: *puts hands on hips and shakes butt*

Boomer says: "Hey guys, what's that gizmo you got there?"

OMG, guys, what fun we're having!

Is this "Gen X, Gen Y, Gen Whatever" thing supposed to be the new, intellectual version of "what's your zodiac sign?" Because it's certainly got that same accuracy level down.

As I told my much younger sister when she was complaining about not getting a playstation 2 for Christmas several years ago, "when I was growing up, if you wanted to play a video game at home you had to program it your damn self."

I guess millenials would like work too if they could spend the money they earned on stuff they liked rather than paying off the mortgage they took out to go to school.

It's like humanity has changed, fundamentally.

You're telling me that a generation near retirement is upset with a generation that is coming into young adulthood?  That's never happened in human history.  I'll bet they even have a list of things they ascribe specifically to that young generation - probably something like lazy, apathetic, disconnected from reality, and moving too fast.  Oh, and self-absorbed and selfish.  And I bet that awful set of young whippersnappers has a lot to say about their elders - disconnected from modern reality, self-righteous, self-absorbed, and unwilling to hand the reins over to the new capable set of innovators.

Jesus, stop the farking presses.  It's like everyone is taking crazy pills.  This isn't exactly like every generational relationship in human history.

My childhood.

At least I had my C64 and Ducktales to keep me occupied until my parents came home at 6pm and fed me some sort of shiatty pasta bake.

My wife is a "Y" and she doesn't understand the total apathy I have for my parents. I tried to explain to her that they raised me that way, but she still doesn't get it.

Also, anyone else think that their parents are kind of stupid? I don't mean in the "low IQ" sort of way, but if you look at the things they obsess about and how they've let it totally dominate their lives, you just shake your head and go, "What da fuq?"

I dunno, maybe I'm just being hard on them because I ran out of farks to give when I was 12. Meh indeed.

Nothing like condensing a wide range of social, economic, religious, and cultural values into a simplistic "hurrr you were born during an arbitrary timeperiod so you dumb" mess.
