I want to thank all the boomers here. After the Great Hack, there were only three of us for the longest time. And one, changed their name.
nissanmama - you are welcome here. Yes, I know that you are on the boundary, a rather fuzzy one at that. I would like to think that as a boomer, we'd be inclusive rather than exclusive.
I know that, when there was no activity on this thread, I got, not open hostility, but a definite unwelcome from a (very) few of the Gen Xers, for posting on "Their" thread. I am not certain why. After all, there are very few "common" experiences (falling in love, heart break, child bearing/raising, jobs/bosses, weather, geography, social situations and cultural events) that they might have had, that we can't relate to - because we've had them as well.
Sure, some of our tastes may differ and some of our values may slightly different priorities. However, I suspect these, probably slight, differences are more "stage of life" issues that are only loosely related to age and less significant than differences between individuals in their own generational cohort.
Have any of you been less than warmly welcomed? Or am I being overly sensitive?
