    That sounds like a problem if she’s in public when she needs to know…

    I’m technically a Boomer but I identify as Gen X.

    I’m a generation x… the generation the marketers never cared about because there weren;t enough of us to be important. My entire life everything has been geared to people 10 years or more older than me or 10 years or more younger than me. The Boomers on one side and the echo on the other side. We are in our 50’s now and the government is still led by the Boomers and the up and coming politicians are from the Echo generation. Still limited opportunities for advancement because the Boomers aren’t retiring that quickly, and competing with those for whom modern technology was something they grew up with gives the echo generation the advantage in terms of replacing the retiring boomers. I’m not bitter I only seem that way.

    So, you are willing to let people you don’t know, who have an obvious bias, tell you who your are, what to think, what to spend your money on, as if you had no independent thought or will power. . . . I’m guessing you have a fondness for a very large Orange person with a bad comb over.

    Yes, the generation borders are probably more liminal than portrayed in the media – excellent dialogue with a splash of humor!

    With some states getting rid of math, reading and writing graduation tests, they will call you “generation dumb.”

    The mom did not answer Holly’s question. It was an honest question, but the mom changed the subject. She could have said it made her feel very old to be in the Boomer generation. Or that she felt very young compared to the Boomers who were born in 1946.

    They started it with “The Greatest Generation” followed by the “Baby Boomer” Generation which I am part of. Born in 1957 when WW2 had ended just 12 years before and Korean War ended just 4 years before.

    I think generational labels are more a result of the history and common experiences a generation lived through, and therefore mean nothing until after the fact. Before 1920, for instance, the word “flapper” was meaningless. The “Greatest Generation” wasn’t born great.

    She could just check the changing labels on her shirt each day.
