Michael Hardner. I finally figured out your name after browsing the "other" forum.

Now there's a place where you really need an "ignore" feature.

Yeah.  It's a moniker though.

Now this:

Boomer says ""Iím 60, and I say to the millennials: Put down the Facebook, Twitter, avocado toast, 'influencer' blogs, and VOTE. Save the snark for your elders, we have much experience," writes a reader on Bret Stephens's "Dear Millennials: the Feeling is Mutual.""

Stinging response from a milennial:

people your age crashed the economy, then elected a Reality TV show host president. I'm-a keep snarking.

Also - a response:

Also their generation never really lifted their boot heel off the throat of Gen-X so that gen was largely skipped over. There are some great Boomers, but many are narcissistic jerks who refuse to accept they as a gen sold out their values for mountains of cocaine in the 80s.

I'm a boomer, my kids qualify as GenX and so far all is good. We are all products of the time we live in and this intergenerational BS gives me a headache. Every generation thinks it is smarter than the ones that came before and after. Tiresome.

It depends on where you were (at least in the 80's). When I was living in Europe, you paid by the minute (actually shorter increments) for even local calls. Some phones even had meters on them so you could watch your pocket book draining as you chatted away.

Used to buy phone cards in Germany and use them in pay phones.
