There are currently many discussions about Gen Y vs Gen X. As a Gen Xer, I would like to point out that we are a generation deeply traumatized by broken promises. As Stephen Colbert recently said (Colbert Report of 1 April 2008):
When I was a kid, they promised me a jet pack. Where's my jet pack?Yes, where is it? It's really tough when you realize that you've been lied to all your life. This is why I ask all Gen Yer's to please show some compassion and be nice to us Gen Xer's.
