Talking 'bout My Generation-Saturday 9

1. What do you think is the most unique thing about your generation?
I am a Boomer and I think Boomers have a work ethic that I understand. When I did training for the company I worked for, I always appreciated Boomers in my classes. I was having mainly Millennials in my classes when I retired and I did not understand them at all!

2. Do you speak out as often as you should?
I haven't always, but as I get older I tend to speak out more.  I don't care so much what others may think of my opinions.
3. How often are you tough and unreasonable?
I am not tough and unreasonable at all, ever. I am soft and understanding.
4. Do you believe that sometimes you learn more from a failure than a success?
Nope. Well maybe, one should learn not to do it that way again. It is easier and less messy to succeed.
5. Do you feel that you always have to win?
I like to win, but I don't always have to win. I would rather be right.
6. Do you think tradition matters?
Certainly it matters, traditions make civilization work, but we should also realize when traditions don't make sense for us anymore and be willing to change.

7. Do you tend to root for the underdog?
Sure do!  Usually I'm the underdog.
8. Have you ever felt that you want to exceed your parents’ successes?
No, I would want to be as good as they were, in every way.
9. Of all the cartoon characters that you know of, which is most like you?


  1. LMAO at 60's $ today - acid v. assets...

  2. I can imagine the generation gap (if you will) in the work place is something of a struggle, especially with the newest entering the work place. Tech has played a part in their life always and their attention spans are so limited due to it. Right now, I'm at the point that there's only one generation behind me at my job, but as that gap grows, I can see where there may be difficulties. Interesting point.
    I completely agree with your traditions answer too.

  3. I think failure should be experienced sometimes in order to make us stop and think of why we failed. Loved the cartoons, they made me chuckle.

  4. I'm a Boomer too! I don't always have to win but I strive to. ;)
