that just about covers it

21 Oct

I’ve done some talk about the differences between generations a bit in this space over the years. However, I don’t think I’ve ever quite managed hit the nail on the head quite as hard as Mr. Matt Honan has in his post entitled Generation X Doesn’t Want to Hear It.

But that’s okay. Generation X is used to being ignored, stuffed between two much larger, much more vocal, demographics. But whatever! Generation X is self-sufficient. It was a latchkey child…

…Generation X is beyond all that bullshit now. It quit smoking and doing coke a long time ago. It has blood pressure issues and is heavier than it would like to be. It might still take some ecstasy, if it knew where to get some. But probably not. Generation X has to be up really early tomorrow morning…

Generation X is tired.

Yeah, the piece is a little bitter perhaps, and a little bit fatalistic, and a whole lot cynical. But that’s really Generation X, isn’t it?

If you’re of a certain age, or know and love someone of that certain age, I encourage you to read it. You might laugh. But if you don’t, that’s cool too.
