And now, Adventures in Ironic News

From an AP article on those darn lazy twenty-somethings who just don't want to work:

CHICAGO - Evan Wayne thought he was prepared for anything during a recent interview for a job in radio sales. Then the interviewer hit the 24-year-old Chicagoan with this: "So, we call you guys the 'Entitlement Generation,'" the baby boomer executive said, expressing an oft-heard view of today's young work force. "You think you're entitled to everything."

Okay, first of all, how does anyone ever think it’s appropriate to say something like this during a job interview? What the fuck kind of business etiquette is that? And second, let me get this straight: BABY BOOMERS are complaining that TWENTY-SOMETHINGS think they’re entitled to everything? Baby boomers are the most self-centered, egomaniacal, entitlement-crazed, greedy, privileged human beings in the history of humankind. And they’re complaining that their CHILDREN are too pampered?

Now, deserved or not, this latest generation is being pegged, too — as one with shockingly high expectations for salary, job flexibility and duties but little willingness to take on grunt work or remain loyal to a company.

Gosh, why in the world would today’s workers possibly show a lack of loyalty to a company? It couldn’t be because of the systematic destruction (by Boomer-age politicians, for the most part) of unions, pensions, social safety nets, regulation, and anything else that might possibly make a COMPANY be loyal to an EMPLOYEE, could it? Loyalty is a two-way street, jackasses.
