The Greatest Generation thought their kids were whiners because they didn’t live through the Great Depression and a world war.
The Boomers thought the Gen Xers were whiners because they didn’t have to worry about being draft to fight in Vietnam, the Civil Rights movement, or Watergate.
And now the Gen Xers think Millenials are whiners because they don’t have to deal with Reaganomics, the Cold War, or a world without Internet.
Already, I’m looking at the kids today and thinking they’ve got it good because they have no idea what it was like before things like wifi, cellphones, and didn’t have to deal with the job market of the Great Recession.
Thus the Circle of Gripes keeps going.
