Gen X quiz

As I wait for my Intro to PR students to finish their midterms, I am reading Jeff Gordinier's X Saves The World. I must share the GXAT (Generation X Aptitude Test). What's your answer to this question - Do you want to change the world?

1. Yes, and I'm proud to say we did it, man. We changed the world. Just look around you!

2. Yes, absolutely, and I promise I will get back to doing it just as soon as interest rates return to where they're supposed to be.

3. Omigod, omigod, changing the world and helping people is, like, totally important to me! I worked in a soup kitchen once and it was so sad but the poor people there had so much dignity!

4. The way you phrase that question is so fucking cheesy and absurd that I am not even sure I want to continue with this pointless exercise.

That's the only question on the GXAT. If you answered #4, you're an Xer (no matter your age). What did you answer?

The whole time I was taking the quiz (until I got to #4) I was like, "You've got to be kidding me..."

I scrolled down first, to make sure it wasn't too long. Then I read the question and the possible answers...

1 - No...
2 - Boring. No.
3 - EH? Nooo!

Then came number four, and I just laughed. Busted!
