Emails my dad forwards: Generation Y

My dad is one to forward relatively funny stuff usually. It’s a great break from my day. I enjoy it, but then there are times when he forwards something, I chuckle and then start wondering if it’s more than just a blind forward. Not that I care (I really don’t,) but it’s fun to see subtle messages being sent. So in honor of this kinda stuff, I’m adding a new “dadism” category to collect them. Stay tuned for more. First installment below, entitled “Generation Y”:

People born before 1946 were called The Silent generation.

People born between 1946 and 1964 are called The Baby Boomers.

People born between 1965 and 1979 are called Generation X.

And people born between 1980 and 2010 are called Generation Y. 

Why do we call the last group Generation Y?

Y should I get a job?
Y should I leave home and find my own place?
Y should I get a car when I can borrow yours?
Y should I clean my room?
Y should I wash and iron my own clothes?
Y should I buy any food?
