But Generation X is tired of your sense of entitlement. Generation X also graduated during a recession. It had even #tier jobs, and actually had to pay for its own music. (At least, when music mattered most to it.) Generation X is used to being #ed over. It lost its meager savings in the dot-com bust. Then came George Bush, and 9/11, and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Generation X bore the brunt of all that. And then came the housing crisis.
Generation X wasn’t surprised. Generation X kind of expected it.

Getting screwed is our purpose I suppose...
Yet let me tell you, if the position reveals itself, I will do all I can to try and stop our demise, better be paying attention...
Oh my god!
(no-one told me!)
I'm a baby boomer. Guess I can get all the blame for all of life's woes.
Maybe GenX is the first "Victim" generation.
The economy sucks for everyone.
The housing collapse sucked for everyone.
The wars sucked for everyone.
Healthcare sucks for everyone.
High prices hit everyone.
Unemployment goes for everyone.
Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and get back to making the life that you want. NOT the one supposedly entitled to you!
