I bet as you are reading this you are ready and longing for a 3 day weekend. It's Memorial Day already? I know, it's been a long, hard start to the year and you need to get away from the "rat race" for a while. Jeepers, creepers, quit your whining. You are starting to sound like a Millennial. Well, if you have a few minutes to spare won't you check out this week's edition of the "Baby Boomer Guidebook" to see what's happening in your world.
Why am I being so mean to you and telling you to stop whining like a Millennial? Because my dear Baby Boomer friends you are greedy. You want everything and you want it now including that 3 day weekend at the beach resort. That's right G-R-E-E-D-Y !! Worse than a Millennial.
If you don't believe me check out the article "Are the Baby Boomers the Greediest Generation Ever?" by Tony Shepard for the Sydney Morning Herald.
If that's not greedy enough for you, find out how our Baby Boomer generation has "scooped the jackpot" in the article titled "Sorry, Baby Boomers Really Did Have It All" in The London Telegraph.
I really didn't mean to rag on the Millennials by the way. They are not all lazy, self-centered and preaching entitlement. This is a generation that is faced with a dire economy, high unemployment, stagnant wages, a broken health care system and the weight of massive student loans. All caused in part by.....you guessed it....our very own Baby Boomer generation.
If you want to read how the Baby Boomer generation is "Making Life Too Hard for Millennials" then check out Steve Rattner's article in the New York Times.
It's easy to tell them about it.
Forward it on to them or just email them my blog link at www.survive55.com.
The more Baby Boomers we can help, the better place we make this world !!!
