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?

Y should I do anything when I can get it all for FREE?

But perhaps a cartoonist explained it most eloquently below…


Just thought you might want to know “Y” we
ended up with OBAMA for four more years!!!!

  1. Actually Generation X is the 80′s and 90′s.

    I have often faulted the Baby Boomers for the attitude of later generations, it started with us. We carved the way to a very permissive, anything goes society so who could blame our kids for acting the way they do but I’m not sure we ever expect it to go to the extent it has.
