What I Learned On The News Tonight

The "special segment" was about The Entitlement Generation, which is apparently what kids who have recently graduated college or will soon are now called. Supposedly we're a whiney bunch of pansies who think we are entitled to a good job without actually doing any work to prove ourselves. We don't have to work hard to get a job, it'll just magically happen on it's own! We're not professional enough, are too immature and aren't ready for the horrors of the real world, so no one likes to hire us.

I graduate in May.

We're the entitlement generation because the generation before us has made a living on finding various ways (books, media, etc.) of calling us the entitlement generation.

wrap your head around THAT!~

I am with the news on this one. You college hippies need to really wake up and earn your spot in society instead of just paying for it. HA I kid, I kid.....let the foagies burn in hell for fucking us up!

The same stuff was being said/written (but not blogged!) about previous generations. I do remember though that LOTS of kids I went to school with (mid/late 80s) DID whine, piss and moan about not landing that perfect job when they were 22.

BTW, thanks for stopping by my little blog. I'll send you a box of Franzia for a graduation present. You are definitely entitled to that.
