Over on Huffington Post, a recent piece got a lot of attention–at least, if the number of times it came up on my Facebook feed is any indication. The piece, originally posted at wait but why, titled “Why Generation Y Yuppies Are Unhappy,” analyzes a very simple idea:
The members of Generation Y (defined as people born anytime from the 1970s to the 1990s)–or at least a subset of them–are not happy.
They’re “GYPSYs”: Generation Y Protagonists & Special Yuppies. They are “a unique brand of yuppie, one who thinks they are the main character of a very special story.”
Of course, there are oodles of problems with this idea.
