Messenger Bag Generation, I denounce you


What is it with all the 20-somethings? Why do they want all their entertainment content delivered over the phone? Why do all of their jackets have hoods? And why do they all walk around with messenger bags slung over their shoulders, bags packed to the hilt with their meager possessions ( ipod, borrowed paperback book, the remains of a burrito ), as if they need all these supplies because they never know when their drunken travels may bring them home again to their box spring-less mattresses, which are surely lying on the floor?

Good questions all. I have no answers. But I do have a test subject. In the very near future I will conduct a no-holds-barred interview with Jake, my 26 year-old intern, in an attempt to divine what it is, aside from ironic t-shirts and free downloaded music, that motivates his generation.

Yeah, I wish I had grown up in a time with 4 tv stations to choose from, trapper keeper note books, rock-in bands like Frankie Goes to Hollywood, White Snake, and Sade blastin from your 8lb walkman all hidden in you Eastpac back pack.
It's a new world and dinosaurs like you should stick to your vinyl clade McMansions and watch TV Land Reruns in you parachute pants while looking through you high school yearbook cause thats when your where the king.

I guess that's why you pay $40 bucks of your parents money to buy concert t-shirts I threw away years ago!

What ever old man dinosaur, your just jealous. I'm sure you look great walking around the mall in that 350.00 Members Only Rolling Stones Special Edition Jacket with matching socks. Spend another weekend in Suburbia admiring your Robert Kinkade "paintings". I would love to see you in the "bowl" but that ain't gonna happen.

I would "love" to see you learn how to "spell", but that
probably ain't gonna happen either. It would break your parents hearts to see the money they paid for a liberal arts education going down the drain like this.

Anonymous forgot to pack a "sense of humor" in his messenger bag. Sounds like he pinched all his references from "I love the 80's"

Well duh seeing how I wasn't born till the middle of the decade. But more power to you and your dinosaur friends. Keep on believing that you are beyond definitions and cling to the past. The rest of use will sit back marvel at your purchasing power. I think ebay has some useless crap that you while eagerly spend most of your bloated paycheck on.
