Two dumdums next to me pulled out a box of Trivial Pursuit cards.  She asked him some question about the 1980 Presidential election.  His answer:  Eisenhower.

LOL!

David Eisenhower has a really good show on PBS, the name of which I can't recall right now because I'm at the bar and in love with at least two bartenders

 A couple of weeks ago I was visiting my mom in the hospital after her hip surgery.  Mom and I were talking and watching baseball.  The woman in the other bed (early 60s) was watching Jeopardy with her 40ish daughter.

The volume was down pretty low but I could see her TV from where I was sitting.  I was mentally answering the questions as they came up.

The woman and her daughter were just watching.  Maybe every fourth question one of them would take a very bad guess.  

Eventually one of them said “Who would know this crap?”

This would actually be great schtick. Go out to a crowded place with someone and start playing Trivial Pursuit badly to see if you can drive the people around you insane.

Friend: What is the capital of New Mexico?

Me: Washington DC

Friend: Huh, no, this says it’s Santa Fe.

Me: Weird. Maybe it’s an old version before 9/11 or something.

Friend nods.

Have you ever gotten on a conference call, then were struck with the urge to defecate? Twenty minutes of hell. I hope they didn't detect the strain in my voice, or hear the rumblings of my colon Krakatoa.

Agreed. If possible when I’m in the bathroom, I leave the door open. Acoustically it’s a little better

Was the question: What election marked the 21st anniversary of Eisenhower's death?

Multiple times in the past few weeks at work I’ve gone into the restroom and people have been having full on business conversations while going to the bathroom. I don’t get it. It’s disgusting. I made sure to rip a nasty one when one guy was on his phone at the urinal. Yeah, that’s right, your client now thinks you’re dropping turds while on the phone with them you nasty stankbutt.

1000% this.  BEYOND weird.  What's even worse is the guys who do it at the effing urinal.   You know, the ones that want to keep chatting about that morning's stand up while letting it hang.

I don't go to the men's room to socialize, bruh.  I go there to dook.  Whatever it is, it isn't so gaddam important that it can't wait until your #### isn't in your hand any more.   STOP TALKING TO ME, PERV.

Men's room at our office is extremely "echo-y". If I hear that when I enter I'll go into a stall next to that talker to whizz (if it's available), stand as far away from the bowl as I can, and arch that ##### into the water to make as much noise as is urethra-ly possible.  Hope your client enjoys the dulcet tones of Urinary Falls while you talk about "what brown can do for them."

Take the call outside, Connor.  This room is for dropping deuces, not picking up contracts.

if'n i'm correct this whole millenials vs boomers thing is grandkids hating their grandparents, correct?

they skipped right past hating their parents to go after their grandparents?

 

this feels like an entirely new thing. when i was a kid we were angry at our parents.. but our grandparents (mine were born in the teens to 30s) were beloved. they grew up in an environment entirely different than mine with radically different ideas about how the world worked & they weren't shy about defending it but never, ever, ever would that have come between grandchildren and grandparents.

this is weird. guess i realized that my grandparents came from a totally different generation, their ideas were fitting for their time but no longer relevant and it didn't matter to me because the future was mine (ours).

 

this whole fighting back against people 2 generations older reeks of being mad at the girl you want to like you because she watches Murder She Wrote and you want her to be in to anime.

I think this is why millennials are fed up. They keep getting blamed for everything and are constantly the target of ridicule and derision from older folks. But they aren’t the ones that have polluted the planet. They’re not the ones that created a system that “requires” a college degree that costs $150k to get a piece of paper just to get any decent office job. They’re not the ones that have made housing virtually unaffordable for many. They’re not the ones that have screwed up the healthcare system to the point where you either just go without healthcare or you end up being saddled with tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars of medical bills if something catastrophic happens. They’re not the ones who racked up trillions and trillions of dollars of government debt. Etc, etc. 

The advent of social media and smart phones has radically changed our world in an unbelievably short amount of time, so it’s not a surprise that cultural divides are widening between an older generation that grew up without any of that and a younger generation that grew up always knowing that stuff.

eh, it's not just the boomers who did these things though.

it pre-dates them. sure their parents celebrated beating the Germans by having 11 kids each and that put a tremendous strain on the system but, hell, that's just how it worked out :shrug:.

yeah a lot should have been done differently but that's hindsight being 20/20.  plastics were a massive revolution. sure it turns out that it pollutes the hell out of the environment but nobody really realized that until it was too late.  something this generation is doing that they think is amazeballsthebesthingevr!2!121! will be a massive detriment to their grandkids  :shrug: and some things every generation does will be a massive leap forward for humanity.

 

hell, Gen X gave us never-ending war.. wholeheartedly. and, oops, that's a bad idea.  

we'll see.. millenials will have their time to be blamed for some massively moronic mistake that they didn't do enough to prevent. it's just a matter of what that will be and when it manifests.

We got screwed by boomers too, and we have very little effect on millennials (except for those of us that date down in age a decade or two).

Question for people that know anything about health insurance:  Roverkid's concussion/eating disorder treatment spanned 2018/19, with the residential treatment portion occuring March-May 2019.  They told me insurance would cover all but $6,000.   I never got a bill.

Premera Blue Cross has now withdrawn from my county, so I just got new insurance off of the exchange.   Same coverage, lower rate (thanks, Obama).   Can I expect a bill for the $6,000 at some random date in the future?

Boomers weren't in power in Vietnam.  They were the ones taking acid in colleges or getting killed in the war.   Boomers brought us just about everything since then.  

Genxers are the first generation in America who were worse off than the generation before us, because the boomers are like locusts that consumed everything in sight and left nothing for future generations.  I look forward to not collecting social security when they bankrupt the system.

I have a lot to say about inter-generational conflicts but, despite my earlier joke about you low-rent, cynical, smug, hyper-critical, overly opinionated Gen Xers, I don't think this is the thread for a real discussion about this issue. Feelings could get hurt and that not why were here.

Oh yeah, you dress badly, too.

You know why I dress badly?  Because I work from home.   Why do I work from home?  Because boomers took all the jobs and I had to create my own.
