Baby boomers vs Gen Y 167



View Profile

A self-important uni student walking along the beach took it upon himself to explain to a senior citizen resting on the steps why it was impossible for the older generation to understand his generation.

“You grew up in a different world, actually an almost private one” the student said loud enough for others to hear. “The young people of today grew up with television, jet planes, space travel, man walking on the moon. We have nuclear energy, ships and cell phones, computers with light speed… and many more.”

After a brief silence, the senior responded as follows. “You’re right son. We didn’t have those things when we were young… so we invented them. Now, you arrogant little sh*t what are you doing for the next generation?”

The applause was amazing!
