    Signs you are "Generation Y"

    We have a dry erase board at work that we write appointments on (people coming into the office). Someone erased one of mine, so i asked why it was "deleted".

    Hmmm

    You know you're a Gen-Yer when you constantly use Google as both a verb and a legitimate form of research.

    Right, and growing up in the late 80's to 2000, computers have been central in our lives from the start.

    *edit*
    Always quote someones work, that way when it gets deleted you don't look like a schizophrenic.

    I was 10 in 1983, when my dad brought home an IBM AT. It cost $1500.

    That's over $3000 in today's dollars.

    We've not only had computers but laptops and wireless since the 90's. When my wife decided to go back to college she went to one of those schools that was doing the IBM laptop program, where you pay an extra $600 per semester for 8 semesters for an IBM laptop and then pay another $600 after you graduate to buy it (yea the math is right, way overpriced). When she had the orentation she was handed a cat5 cable and the instructor though she was some sort of person who had never seen a compuyer before wen she asked what the cable was for. This was back when a wireless access point had no router/hub/kitchen sink and cost $500 but thats what we had always used at home so she didn't know wired networking.
    Brought home a dumpster PC and montior last week. My almost three year old called the computer a pager (my work requires I carry one of the keyboard type two way pagers but its not that bag) and the monitor was a tv. But he's never seen a CRT 'tv' before and proceded to 'ride the tv' climbing on top of it.

    You are gen y when you are familiar with Wiki, but do not know what a real encyclopedia looks like or have never heard of a door to door encyclopedia salesman.

    You can memorize where all the powerups, weapons upgrades and medkits are on all 50 levels of your 10 favourite videogames but can't remember (or figure out how) to change the oil in your car.

    I get newspaper salesmen weekly. I'm not even nice to them anymore, the one guy just finished a cigarette so I told him he smelled like it and shut the door. The next person I asked why I would want to waste resources like trees and fuel to deliver the paper.

    you think an "album" is for photos...

    this could also indicate you being of the WWII generation.

    This thread is going to make me feel a lot older than I am, I can see it already.

    Now I'm going to go listen to a few albums, continue being completely and utterly unaware of what the Facebook website even looks like, and maybe search around for a vintage encyclopedia set. Or maybe type something up on one of my manual typewriters. Perhaps ride a bicycle later.

    Sure thing. I'll put it in the envelope with my next move in our chess game. And if, during my ride I come across a payphone, I'll give you a ring to let you know I've dropped the envelope in the mailbox on the corner.

    I will not be able to answer your call, as I cannot punch the tiny buttons on my phone. When you call, I will accidentally open some phone app is either a game or hentai porn, or both, by accident.

    Oh, well, I'll send you a pornographic magazine as well. They're the bee's knees.
