Sunday Funnies | Are You Gen Y

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Benchmark Mortgage

Somebody sent this to me last week and I couldn't help but laugh!  Hope you are having a great weekend!


People born before 1946 were called
The Silent generation.

People born between 1946 and 1964 are called
The Baby Boomers.

People born between 1965 and 1979 are called
Generation X.

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?

But a cartoonist explained it very eloquently below...

Who is Gen Y?

Hi Dean,

That is hilarious!  According to people I've been talking with it's true too!

I even showed this to my two Gen Y kids!  Granted they are not like this at all but they laughed and said it was so true of the people they know.

Dean, this was great, thanks.

My question is:

Y do they wear their pants like that?
