Generation X is sick of your bullshit (millenials)

But whatever! Generation X is self-sufficient. It was a latchkey child. Its parents were too busy fulfilling their own personal ambitions to notice any of its trophies-which were admittedly few and far between because they were only awarded for victories, not participation.

Little bit of historical revisionism there, no?

The Boomers were so full of themselves they thought nothing of racking up an unprecedented mountain of debt for which they would put future generations on the hook.

38. I disagree

 

Supporting a middle class life style including 2 kids and buying a house with one income from a union job makes the boomers special. My parents were boomers and did exactly that. And that hasn't happened for any generation since. You had it that good and you can't even recognize it? Amazing.

Imagine marrying someone and graduating today from a top 50 university with combined $50k student loan debt (this could easily be doubled). You have to pay a quarter of your take home salary to student loans, half of your take home salary goes to rent, the rest to buy food and gas. Tell me how you would support 2 kids and save up for a down payment on a house, because that is exactly what my parents did in the 60s.

Your generation was so special you don't even realize how special you were.

The corollary as well. 'Young people talking shit about older people... and it too has been going on literally forever. Exciting enough to comment on, but the fashionably disinterested and cool trendiness of youth compels us to call it "boring" for the sake of, well... the cool trendiness of youth.

It is odd that you call generational labels 'bullshit' in your premise while using them as supporting evidence.

I'm proud of what the millennials have accomplished and how active they are. And I fully support them. As a Gen Xer I'm tired of having the baby boomers always decide things (we simply never had the numbers to counter them).

I don't begrudge the baby boomers but they are the generation that brought us Reagan, trickle down economics, and the DLC. I'm quite sure the millennials can do a better job once they start flexing their collective muscles. And I look forward to supporting them in the endeavor.

7. complaints about complaints

The standard of living in America has been in decline since 1968. There is a challenge in that for ALL of us. We live in a country that seems to be believe that being low income HAS to be punished. The equation is now even more stick than carrot (and the carrot is GMO btw).

We need more doers and less complainers. More actors and less audience. Higher expectations and lower healthcare costs.

for ALL of us.

uphill both ways in a blizzard while carrying the 150 pounds of paper work I have to process each and every hour.

then, if I get a lunch (you kids today are so lucky with the eating thing), I go and chew on twigs and gravel.

and let's not even discuss the complete waste of time of going to the bathroom. I'm holding it in until retirement.

When i was a kid the hours were 9-5 including an hour lunch paid. There was even a movie complaining about it.

Now days it's 9-5:30 with a half hour lunch unpaid....

Just saying that gravel might not have tasted good but at least you were paid to eat it.

30. That's my parent's generation too.

 

In some ways they might have had the best of the American Dream, if they were white. Yes they had the tail end of the Depression and WWII in their childhoods, but they were largely too young for Korea and then too old for Vietnam drafts. They came of age in a time when college was cheap and then one decent job, even a factory job, could get you a house, a new car every few years, vacations, etc. Medical and dental care didn't bankrupt you.

But now a lot of them (obviously not all) are bitter old rightwing racists who hate immigrants, don't want to pay any taxes, and think only they should be entitled to the good life. At least that's been my experience with my parents' peers.

But that's okay. Generation X is used to being ignored, stuffed between two much larger, much more vocal, demographics. But whatever! Generation X is self-sufficient. It was a latchkey child. Its parents were too busy fulfilling their own personal ambitions to notice any of its trophies-which were admittedly few and far between because they were only awarded for victories, not participation.

especially as a Gen Xer. Look, to those that agree with the OP, maybe you are jealous because instead of taking smoke breaks, going whatever, and idolizing Kurt (whose music was not even the best of his generation), the Millennials are actually trying to DO SOMETHING about it. It may be silly, it may be futile, but when these kids are in their 40's, they can at least say they gave a damned and tried.

To quote the Boomer artist that Kurt quote in his suicide note "it's better to burn out than to fade away." Sadly, people like this op chose to fade away. If that is what being a Gen X is being reduced to, then fuck that. Of course, I know it is not, but that this is just another thing put in the spotlight so that the rich among the Boomers can point top it and say Se,, we were the last youthful generation to mean anything" w suit them just fine as the last of their Generation eats the last of the earth, gleeful that they no longer have to pretend to give a damned about anybody but themselves.

My every Boomer who chose to demonize and exploit Gen Xers or Millennials live long enough to enjoy a rest home staffed by the same kids whose future they spent.

Not that the angst has necessarily changed, but I think many GenX people have since given up on ever having a niche.

It's a generation over looked and never really marketed to. In modern society, it's as if they're an asterisk in history, which is sad. They honed much of our culture, imagine what rock would be without their contributions? Metal, punk, rap and grunge were honed from their advances.. Sure, film sort of sucked, but I think they resisted the herding there better some other generations to be honest. ESee their music for a hint at that (ignore hair bands, WTF were they thinking?!) They hated being told how it was going to be and lashed out in their own way. Problem was, no one was listening since they were sandwiched in between two much larger generations.

I'm a GenX I recently learned (I think?), but whatever. I'm not about labels, and I have friends both above and below my generation. We can all learn from each other. And, hey, even if I'm not as competitive as some of my slightly younger peers at work, I work amazingly well on my own, and need less personal validation for my input. <---- riffing on the stereotype for those who don't get my humor. 😉

Lather, rinse, repeat. This crap never changes... All we can do is not bother to validate the silliness of it. We don't have to "clan" up against each other. We're all in this together. That's reality.
