The millennial vs. the baby boomer

A  self-important college freshman attending a football game took it upon himself to explain to a Baby Boomer sitting next to him why it was impossible for the older generation to understand his generation.

“You grew up in a different world - actually an almost primitive one,” the student said, loud enough for many other baby boomers sitting nearby to hear.

“Today people are much more advanced than people your age. We grew up with television, jet planes, space travel, men walking on the moon and the Internet. We have cell phones, nuclear energy, electric and hydrogen cars, computers, automated manufacturing, amazing technologies . . . and” pausing to take another drink of beer. The senior took advantage of the break in the student's litany and said, “You're right, son. We didn't have all those things when we were young + growing up. So we invented them you arrogant little prick! What are YOU doing for your and the next generation?”

And the crowd went wild . . .
