@Sausage you GenX or Millennial?

There is a consistent theme for both the above, i.e. student debt when young and then property inflation well above wages.

Now to add to that, and this is worst for Millennials, is that the jobs market is busted because the boomers want to keep themselves and their property/stock empires safe.

As a GenXer, I am happy to see  higher fatality rates amongst the boomers and older due to COVID, even if it just to free up some housing and stop the entitled generation draining the workers for their future pensions (both state and public sector).

After this is over, I would like to see the state pension cuts and used to reduce income tax. Whilst @micawbermakes a reasonable point about not generalising, there is a huge degree of inter generational unfairness that needs addressing .

Thatcherism was alright for the boomers on the way up, but they now want socialism and state provision on the way down. It is the same as bankers, privatise the profits (lower taxes) and privatise the losses (costs), i.e GenX and Millennials you need to pay for my boomer pension.

I hate them so much my marage might fail.

Naw, the reason your marriage might fall apart is because you are a twit

What does it have to do with your marriage?

TBF you are both assuming that the spelling error is marriage...the word the OP spelt is only one letter away from "Mirage". Perhaps he is saying that he knows he is living in an illusion and that may fail...i.e. he hates them so much that his reality might implode. OR...he is the proud owner of an ex-french forces Dassault Mirage aircraft and he might feel compelled to damage it in some anger management exercise.

OR...

I should switch off the laptop now.

Happy new year all!

Lol, the OP always seems angry and a bit bitter maybe he behaves like this in real life and people are not accepting it

Brilliant post 

very succinct.

the inter-generational unfairness is pretty crushing for the young, and it always feels even worse when you get ignorant boomers saying things like ‘well it was hard for us’ when frankly it was not, it’s like salt in the wounds. 

but if you look at the age of boomers now, most have lost a great deal of cognitive ability already, well past it, and it’s easier to spout rubbish than to think subjectively, or put themselves in millennials shoes. Or even look at the raw facts and figures to show how easy the boomers had it, and how bad the young now have it. 

I mean how could they know how it feels? they had charmed lives, I mean I won’t ever know what it’s like to grow up on grinding poverty in a third world country, so how can we expect them to understand or sympathise? 

it just creates a lot of hate which the boomers themselves poor petrol on. 

I used to be really angry but as time ticks on the boomers at my workplace are retiring, so I won’t hear their brags of HPI or their 4th holiday this year, or they only work as a hobby job etc. time is the only healer, (or not heal in the boomers case)

best to let it go, let time deal with it. 

just play the game of life with the bad cards  you have be dealt. we would like retribution and reparations and we deserve it, but by the time the boomers lose their voting power we won’t be imposing the punishment on cat-that’s-got the cream faced 60 year old boomers but senile 80 somethings, and at which point so much water will of passed under the bridge we won’t care anymore. 

history will be the judge on the selfish generation, many millennials will teach their children how their grandparents had it easy and salted the earth that followed them, they won’t be seen as great social reformers, but instead the generation that broke the social contract, that eroded decency and were generally utter twats.

Late gen x were no better off either potentially actually worse as they have been forgotten about its boomers vs millennials and the rest are history.

That's a rather small sample (n=3). You need a larger sample before you can generalize.

As a Genx-er, I agree with this.  Justice for GenX-ers!!

Just reassure them that you're as careful about Covid as they were about influenza in 1968.

I'm so p*****d off with the attitude of my in-laws but my wife abhors my criticism of them. They literally said people born 1970 onwards need to earn more, house prices are fine. Plus the same people don't stick to lockdown rules hence we need more, stricter lockdowns.

Now that's something I have noticed, our children's generation are more compliant to rules and regulations than our generation were (are).
