NOW WE KNOW ......

Now we know
There is more truth than fiction here....

People born before 1946 were called 
"The Silent generation"

People born between 1946 and 1964 are called 
"The Baby Boomers"

People born between 1965 and 1979 are called
"Generation X"

And people born between 1980 and 2010 are called 
"Generation Y"

Why do we call the last group "Generation Y" ?

Y should I get a job?
Y should I leave home and find my own place?
Y should I get a car when I can borrow yours?
Y should I clean my room?
Y should I wash and iron my own clothes?
Y should I buy my own food?

Couldn't resist sharing this with you ... and couldn't help thinking while it's not true of all kids from the Y generation, it's true of a lot of them.
It certainly was my giggle for the day.

LOL!! Unfortunately, I know too many of the Gen Y who are like this. But as you said, they're not all this way!

Love it. I'm Gen Y and I'm not like that at all :-).

Anna, I think it's more the younger ones born in the late 80s to early 90s and beyond that are like this.

That is awesome. Funny. I know not everyone is like that but it so made me smile :)

Hey I'm a Gen Y! I don't think this is me, thank goodness!
