Now we know!

Generation Y

Generations are grouped as follows:

- The Silent generation, people born before 1945.

- The Baby Boomers, people born between 1945 and 1961.

- Generation X, people born between 1962 and 1976.

- Generation Y, people born between 1977 and 2000.

Why do we call the last one generation Y. I did not know, but a caricaturist explains it so eloquently.... see below...

LOL...I don't understand how these kids can even walk...and they're always pulling their pants up or hanging onto them so they don't fall completely off...

Enjoy your day.

Looks like my 27 year old step son! You would think they would learn to buy pants that fit. He's is constantly pulling them up, even with a belt on!

Oh Lord, my husband and I are still laughing over this one... Yes "Y" generation.

Belts are a thing of the past, yes???

lol.. That's funny!

Nancy said...

That does explain it! LOL I hate to see a kid with those pants hanging down like that! Boy, am I glad I got mine raised before those pants became a wardrobe essential!!! Mine wouldn't have had them, period!!!

(((((( HUGS ))))))

Dear Patty ~~ Nothing looks worse than seeing half their backsides !!
Good cartoon explained their name.
Thanks for your comments and your question. I buy Microwave chicken at Woolworths, they are just uncooked chickens sealed in two plastic bags'
You discard the outer bag, but cook them in the inner bag for about 45 minutes and they are nice and moist and tasty and quick. Possibly could use an oven bag, I mostly only reheat meals in my microwave, apart from the chickens I have a nice bid oval shaped dish which fits OK.
Take care, dear Patty, Sleep well.
Love, Merle.

Not easy to run with these things, either. I saw kid wearing these kinds of pants, trying to run to catch the train ... that was really funny!
