"You're more likely to get accused of being a part of the entitlement generation if"
I don't care if you accuse me of being a part of the entitlement generation. You have the right to judge me in whatever way you want, however harshly you may want to do it. Judge away. Understand, though, that I just don't care.
On a practical note, from a generational standpoint, as someone in the age 50+ category, I believe that the people between 15 and 25, for the most part, have life a lot TOUGHER than what I dealt with 30 years ago. Life was considerably easier in so many ways. We could afford to make a mistake or two - even a major mistake - and recover, and furthermore jobs, especially decent paying ones, were much easier to get. In the 1980s and 1990s, I NEVER had a problem getting a new job when I wanted one. Now? I have faced unemployment issues, and so have quite a few people I know who never had these issues in the past.
When I hear someone call younger people the "entitlement generation", I just tune them out. They are just flat out wrong.
