Generation of Boomers and Ys

You are Not a Baby Boomer if you were not born between 1946 and 1964. 
If you think The Jerk, The Swim and The Hustle are the nicknames for the Three Stooges. You are NOT a Boomer. 
If you have never been to a drive in movie or don’t even know what one is, you have no idea what you missed. You are NOT a Boomer. 
If you don’t know that TV used to be black and white and people used “rabbit ears” to get reception.  You are NOT a Boomer. 
If you think a “party line” is a dance, you never use a rotary phone back those days.  Definitely, You are NOT a Boomer. 
If you would rather make love and not war, you may or may not be a Boomer. But at least you have the right idea. 
After all, being a Boomer is more than just being born at a certain time. It’s a state of mind.  And this mind is starting to show signs of senior moments.
 If you were born between 1980 and 2010 you are called Generation Y, 
Why are You called Generation Y?   This is why. 
  • 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 a cartoonist explained it very eloquently below…
Generation Y

Generation Y

Oh, are you asking me what happened to Generation X?  Opsey, my mind went blank (senior moment).

  4. Really thought I am a boomer as a ’67 model… but then Africa was always at least 5 years behind in trends in those days- I associate with al the things you used to identify a boomer…

Please share your reflection. Thank you.
