Conversation w boomers at my work today
Boomer: so youre 20?
Boomer: why are you working at a packing
plant? You should be enjoying your youth
Boomer: when i was your age i was at the
beach and partying with my friends every
night and worked odd jobs to make ends
Me: no one has been able to do that for at
least 10 years.
Me: yeah if you dont start working the
instant you graduate HS you'll basically
starve to death. If you go to college it just
makes the consequences worse bc debt but
delays the problem four years
Its like theyre from an entirely different
country, one that they helped destroy lol.
Nobody can survive on "odd jobs" much less
afford to party and go on vacations on top of
it. It was a legitimate shock for her to find
out theres no room on the schedule for a 20
year old to be retarded like they got to.
Thank you boomers, very cool!
