Generation Y

Yesterday, I had a coffee session with some friends. A big part of the discussion centred on the "Y Generation" and how the younger generation nowadays have become soft. One of them remarked that the younger generation are not as motivated as, say, our generation. He also said that when you assign work to them:-

(a) they will bargain with you as to the deadline for them to submit the work;

(b) they expect you to furnish them the answers or let them know precisely where they can obtain the answers;

(c) they are not prepared to stay back after office hours to finish up the work; and

(d) they will not hesitate to push the work away to others to do for them.

What do you think, my friend? Is there such a thing as a "Y Generation"? It seems that there is a newspaper article about this. Unfortunately, I do not remember coming across such an article.

In any event, does it not depend on the upbringing of the person? Why should it be that the current generation is different? No doubt, this is the age of technology and the internet, but virtues like diligence, respect for seniors, etc are something that are time in memorial and should not dissipate like the ozone layer.

Abba Father, I am amazed how much You love me and how You always hear my cry! It is now past midnight and I have just received the Daily Devotional from the church. How coincidental can it be, that the following passage appeared in the Daily Devotional:-

"Blessed Wherever You Are
Perhaps you work in a non-Christian company and your boss sometimes mistreats you. But God can still bless you in spite of your boss. You get blessed because you believe God for it. It has nothing to do with your boss or the company.
Why then don’t you seem to see the blessings?
My friend, I want you to believe and confess that you are blessed because of Jesus’ finished work on the cross, not because you are of a certain race or work in a certain place.
It does not matter where you work or live, what colour your skin is or what you do for a living. If God blesses you, you are blessed! And it is all because of Jesus. So say to yourself, “I am blessed wherever I am — blessed in the city, blessed in the country!”

Sheesh... that idiot brings a bad name to the few others like myself who quietly suffer and wont make a sound even if we are all packed with work. *sobsob*

Don't bother about this idiot ok? Trust me, one of these days, he'll get his retribution.

btw..."BOUNCE" into your room? U mean he doesnt walk, he bounces? Gosh! Do you know you can judge a person by the way he shakes his hand or walks?
