It’s a bummer that Happy Hours keep bringing the hits, I know, but in this week’s edition of “OH MY GOD WHAT HAVE WE DONE” lookie here: the UK is leaving the EU (but it looks like plenty of people didn’t even know what they were voting on in the first place, so…)! Because that sounds like a totally great idea! Except it doesn’t, because now scores of people—including those who graduated college a month ago and thought they were entering into an exciting, open new world—can’t travel or work in 27 countries! When 75 percent of those ages 18-24, 56 percent of those 25-49, 44 percent of those 50-64, and 39 percent of those 65 and older voted to remain, it’s a little hard not to be super pissed that older generations are making decisions that my contemporaries and our children will have to live with for decades (because you’re fooling yourself if you think this only impacts the UK). GO YOU GUYS, GO! YOU’RE SO
