The Ostrich Generation..

Hehehehehe... okies...now here's something that grabbed my attention the previous day and i really really really wanted to share it..

THE OSTRICH GENERATION { well for the first time there was a term for a generation other then the Teenagers, Adolescents and Youngsters..} is incidenatlly referred to those adults who have crossed a major part of their life doing everything about everything but nothing about their old age, post-retirement etc etc...

when and ostrich feels vulnerable from any surrounding threats or danger it simple digs its head under the mud and since it cant see anything underneath it simply assumes that everything is fine. Researchers in UK have related this attitude of ostrich to adults who they say are aware of their approaching old age but have no clue how to save up. Many people have qouted as "I am going to be bankrupt the very next day of my retirement, but i don't know if i would still be alive till that day to save up... " hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm (i like the positive attitude though.lolzz). Researchers thus conclude that this generation of adults are THE ostrich generation who are aware or their old age but don't wanaa save up.. 

hmmm, somebody telling me about carelessness of youngsters...ya ya ya.... well jokes apart, speaking on serious notes even i doubt if my parents have any plans about it, i don't say that i wont support them, i would love to stay back with them if they are cool with it. The entire earnings of parents go up in daily expenses or in their children interest or something else. It's been a long time i have heard anyone telling that i could save up "this much" or "that much" ...well, life is definitely expensive...

Nywyas, That was a nice TERMINOLOGY ....

cya around soon guys....love ya alll...

SAVE ENERGY MASSIVELY..... 2012  IS APPROACHING : p....LOLZZZ

Have a great weekend !!!

Yep, the name is apt. Call it easy escapism or just absence of planning, but sometimes, we just don't count the balance in our saving account as saving. :P

Nice read.

i would wait to read a more detailed analyss frm ur side on y u think our gen is ostrich!!

Mingled Minds said...

@ jon : hmm, well as far as i think it just because life has became way too expensive and many of us can hardly differentiate b/w our NEEDS and WANTS...so basically we end up spending on stuffs that we actually dont even need and needless to say, i really know only a handful of people who have ever spoken about saving up !!!
Hop that answers your question..might post something similar shorlty, if not this hopfully my next post might.. :))

Thanx for reading...

hmmm Well so very true..
I guess i fall i nthat cause I surly dont want to save.. I mean I dont know if i will be alive tomorrow so why worry now is the time to go nad spend the money that I am earning with al lthe hard work...

as such they say I will have to work till i am 65 and in a few years that will surly go up to 70 .. so I doubt if I will survive till i am 70 .. so might as well enjoy now when i Can .. :)
