Do Boomers make bad old people?

Daniel Halloway writes on MetroBlog that "all our awesome old people — you know, the ones who fought in World War II and invented Bingo — are being replaced by newer, suckier old people called Babyboomers."

Kind of made me chuckle.

I imagine that although the Boomers are refusing to actually get old, they would be really annoyed that Dan thinks they make bad old people. What do you think?

OMG - I literally laughed out loud! Babyboomers suck as old people? Ahahahaha! that, for sure was written by an Xer... wasn't it!

I can attest, the boomers I know do not want to be old, and my almost 60 yo mother was HORRIFIED yesterday that *I* needed to buy reading glasses. In her words, "I'm not old enough to have a daughter who needs reading glasses!" Even though I'm almost 40...

On my last birthday, my mother also told me that she is not old enough to have a daughter as old as me! LOL
