Gen Y explained!

Rate this post

People born before 1946 are called The Greatest 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?
Here’s the explanation!
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 any food?
But perhaps a cartoonist explained it most eloquently….

  1. So sad, yet so true!

  2. The generation with Question mark Y?

  3. Welcome to Canada! We often say it just as it truly is, thus the edginess….
    I was born in 1943, and while the above all-too-often are sadly true, there are the exceptions that prove the rule. I have one HS student, Jacob, who at 17 puts all-too-many adults to shame w/his resources and work ethic. We should focus on the good ones, however, lest we become jaded, crotchety critics.
    My personal prejudice is toward youngsters raised on a farm or in the bush, as they became resourceful and developed their God-given talents at an early age. It can still be a harsh life for those outside the cities, where 75% of us now live, w/o a redeeming alternative vision. And while as a christian I’m further prejudiced, I believe we can make a positive difference to young ones who try their hand at the tasks ahead, who willingly receive instruction that furthers their lives, and who manage to choose carefully in their cohort, NOT an easy choice!

  4. Public indoctrination hard at work on the next generation, too.

  5. Like I heard a bumperstick says: You’re Not Too Old, The Music Sucks.
    (Must find that one. Appropos today. Not all of Gen Y is dumb, but too much of it.)

  6. Try being a member of “Generation Y”…
    Here’s one:
    Y should I take care of my OWN kids when you will?
