The Aspirations of Young People

Sitting outside on the courtyard of my school on this beautiful San Francisco day….

Friend: "What I’m most looking forward to is someday joining a men’s softball team. I want to go out on Sunday afternoons with a bunch of drunk co-workers in a men’s league. I’ll be like, ‘Hey, there’s Rick from finance in left field! That son-of-a-bitch, I haven’t seen him in three weeks!’ "

Me: [Laughing hard] "Tell me you got that from some movie, since that’s brilliant if you made that up on the spot."

Friend: "Quasi made up…Workplace jargon, I love it."

And that, my friends, is Generation Y’s loving anticipation of corporate America.
