    DNA and the "Y" Generation

    THE 'Y' or Millennial Generation

    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?

    • 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 below...

    When I see those droopy britches, I want to yank the pants up and give them a wedgie, then send them home to change into appropriate clothes.

    I normally don't give a hoot about what someone wears, as I live in jeans, or shorts and tank tops, but those droopy, baggy jeans are just terrible. And obviously they were not a "style fad" because they are still around.
    If man had enough horse sense to treat his wife like a Thoroughbred, she'd never grow into an old nag.

    If you climb in the saddle, be ready for the ride!

    Same here. And most of the kids or "young adults" wearing their pants like that walk a few steps then have to adjust things so they don't trip up. Walking and tugging, walking and tugging........for what. Makin' a statement??? I hope I'm not turning into a grouchy old man!!

    Having been born in 1987, I would agree that a good majority of my generation adhere to those thoughts. I just don't happen to be one of them. I take pride in what I do and what I have.

    And I love the cartoon.

    You'll guys sound like my parents in the 60's when we wore torn and patched blue jeans with bell bottoms, and crazy tie-die colors and wore our hair longer than any generation since the 1700's......and look at us now! We've given you dysfunctional polarized government, the 1% richest people, Corporate influence on everything, the worst financial meltdown since 1929, a useless Iraq war, and equally useless Afganistan war, and last of all, we gave you the Y-generation. The funny thing is, most of you here are part of this same baby-boomer generation as me. I or one can't wait to see what they do for us going forward!

    "Y" not? When it comes to droopy pants and rap, it's a no go at my place. I tell them to either pull the pants up or cover it up. As for rap, they all know when you hit my drive you turn it off. They can play it all they want as long as it's not on my property. When I go to their place and they play rap, I won't say anything but I can leave. Am I grouchy? When it comes to that, D*** right!

    I was born in 1945 and only wish that I could meet the standard of the Greatest Generation. I think it was the Greatest Generation that made it possible for us to get to 1945.

    God Bless all of them.

    well I have a story about pants like this; while waiting at the grocery store for my wife to check out, their happened to be bagger with this problem, after having to watch this for a few minutes I got up and proceded to tell him I didn't appreciate his dress apprall while him bagging grocerys, several other women said they agreed also about the site they was witnessing, he told me to ####-off, so I went and got the management and proceded to ask how she could let someone work in the public with their drawers hanging halfway to the floor, she said she had tried to talk to him about it several times, but to no advail, well I said I wasn't a emyployee so I went and stood beside him and proceded to try and shame him by being in a public work place and some body might take pic of him and show his kids someday , so I went back to the bakery and asked for some string , said was going to make belt for the kid at ckeck-out because he didn't know what a belt was, took it back up and followed him trying to give him this string for a belt, finally the supervisor finally sent him on his break till we paid and left. have never spent our money their since. big jim

    A quick-fix to droopy-drawers is a .12Ga., loaded with rock-salt.
    The I.R.S. must love poor folks, they create more and more every day.
