iiiii want somebody to shove

03 Mar

The Boston Globe has a feature about Gen Xers and their home buying habits, which is about as interesting as that sort of article usually is.  Except, of course, that it features lines like:

Autonomous, Web-wise, and tenacious, the generation born between 1965 and 1980 is diving into the real estate market as if it were a mosh pit awash in flannel. No slackers these, real estate specialists say Gen Xers have become some of the savviest home buyers around.

Dude.  Could they, like, get any more generationally stereotypical?  Boston Globe, sometimes it like hurts to look at you or whatever.

Jazz Age homebuyers are dancin’ the Lindy Hop into the real-estate market like never before!

    There are, apparently, some people our age who aren’t. I was as shocked as anyone.
