Young people today
Everytime I meet someone from Gen Y I'm more convinced. The Gen Y's I know are all engaged or married. If they are married they probably had a big princessy wedding with all the trimmings and their thoughts have already turned to getting in the pregnant way and repaying the mortgages on their suburban homes, which are nice and spacious have plenty of rooms to fill with more babies. If they are at uni or went to uni, they seem to stick to sensible career focussed degrees and whip through in record time without seeming to want to spend years in the union bar (not that there probably is one anymore thanks to the abolition of VSU) getting hammered on cheap booze and putting off getting a job. As for the girls, god forbid that anyone might acuse them of being a 'feminist' - that's waaay too radical and scary. I totally blame one J Howard for all of this. What has he done with to these people? What's worse is that only recently I read a poll that said that these guys think Howard rocks, he's the only PM they've ever known and he seems to suit them fine.
I have been stewing over this topic all morning long between intermittent bouts of work. Just a few moments ago I went into the lunch room where one of the gen Y girls who works here was being asked about her recent wedding and how married life was going. "Oh it's so great" she sighed staring down at the big traditional sparkler on her left hand. "But it's just driving me crazy, everyone wants to know what I'm going to do about my last name. " Some Gen X fool (not me) then piped up, "Oh so you're going to keep your own name then?" At the mere suggestion of this Mrs Gen Y visibly bristled and said "Of COURSE not. Of COURSE I will change my name, it's just a matter of finding the time." and swept out of the room.
I give up.
