I took umbrage to this on several levels. One. I think of Baby Boomers as giving birth to Generation X. They would be too old by the time it came time to procreate the Millennials. But I did the math and it seems that it’s those younger baby boomers (the ones who were born nearly two decades after WWII ended) who seem to have sired the millennial generation. I never think of these people as Baby Boomers, having come so lately to the selfish party that is the Baby Boomer generation.
Two. Really? Is it one generation versus another?
Three. Um, is this how it’s gonna be? Generation X has to listen endlessly to how cool the Boomers are, and then pay for all the things they never got around to fully funding like social security? And then we don’t even get a mention? It’s like no one was born between 1964 and 1984.
Four. And now I’m annoyed by how much this whole thing annoys me. Do we really have to have distinct generations? Can’t we all just work together? Answer: no. Because the stupid Boomers need constant reinforcement as to how cool they are.
Five. In the relief category, I’m glad I’m in a generation designation that I know how to spell.
