You want to defend your generation from those persistent accusations: you’re entitled, you don’t know how to work hard for anything, you don’t know how to save money and, as a result, you’ve always got your hand out, etc, etc. You read a stupid webcomic that your (somehow) college-educated friends are passing around, which, to them, seems to explain our generation’s problems quite succinctly. This, even though it entirely ignores structural shifts in the economy, the apathy brought on by the Bush years, and a whole host of other things — and, also, it’s a webcomic. You want to scream at your computer that we’re not all so bad, that some of us would like to work hard and don’t think we have a god-given right to a Sweet Loft and a Creative Job.
But then you see something like this.
