I guess you are. No more ok boomer for you.
Gen Y is millennial but I think with how fast tech was growing during the 2000s it's produced a wider spectrum than most think.
Edit: Prime example, @johnny k is 25 years older than me and we are both millennials.
I'm on the border for millennials and Gen Z, born in '96. I don't really associate too much with either since I grew up with a computer (windows xp and onward) in the house and had "modern" gaming consoles (playstation and Xbox). But at the same time Facebook wasn't popular until I was a teenager and I wasn't a mad user either (and I still don't use social media apart from this place).
'81 is the cutoff so you might be ok
I'm generation x, i've read somewhere that it's the best.....
If you were really gen x, you wouldn't care.
yes you are.
Or buy gear online!!!! NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!
I've met folks bent on showing their axe from every generation...and find I am a cross-generational axe myself---sometimes we have to grind them, but I prefer to focus upon the things we agree are important.
That’s what I was saying, sorry if it was lost in translation.
As a social science person with bad handwriting I am very disposed toward eliminating cursive and very opposed to eliminating social studies.
Social studies is what made me understand why cursive is unnecessary!
It was. The current crop of young people are a lot more likable.
I’m in the “Gen X” age demographic, but I didn’t really identify with a lot of the tropes and stereotypes.
I felt like I was more of a “Lost Generation” holdover
Something happened to me today.
Growing up, I was told repeatedly that I was the last of the Lost Generation. GenX was the best since them, but I think they might have been better. But young people are still more likable then either of us.
Joseph Heller can tell you about that.
That's so gen x.
i can read the clock...it's right there on any UTC derived device.
but seriously. i find it really weird that boomers have this prideful attitude towards the technology of yesteryear cause some mouth-breather my age can't figure it out. when on the other hand, the average boomer is living in the dark ages, in a world where interfaces are more suited for the lowest common denominator than ever before.
if i didn't know what a rotary phone was i could probably figure it out in 15 minutes. whereas i wouldn't bet 5 dollars on the average person in their 60s figuring out how to do something dumb like install ubuntu or use math formulas in excel. as a millennial you always get tasked with "troubleshooting," even though 95% of the time you are just as ignorant as the person asking, and that amounts to googling how to solve something - i'm not sure why someone 30 years my senior can't do the same?
To quote myself (and the other guy)
The other guy: Wow! You're really good at this.
Me: No, I'm good at Google.
