Generation Y: Smart? Independant? Yeah right!

USA Today just did a bizarre story this week about how smart and great this new generation now coming into the work force. You should read it; because I honestly don't know who they're talking about and what rose-colored glasses they were looking through. The majority in their 20's we in the working world we refer as 'Kidults', because most still live with their parents (like roommates, but who still support them), don’t like criticism and their feelings hurt, demand respect-even when it's not earned, and are overall disconnected.
Who knows what will become of them and what they'll actually produce. I remember when the "boomers" complained when my "Gen X" crowd came into the real world as arrogant and rebellious freaks. Now I'm just passing on the tradition. It's all part of the cycle.
