Announcing The Generation X Riddle Contest....

To win, you must supply the best answer to the riddle:

"How many Generation X associate lawyers does it take to screw in a light bulb?"

Here's a sample but not necessarily suggested answer: "Ten. One to screw it in. One to feel good about himself/herself for just showing up at his/her $130,000 job that day. Eight to blame their parents, others or unforseen events when the project fails."

Deadline for submissions is July 1. Decision of WAC? is final. Winner to be announced on July 6, and will receive an e-mailed collection of WAC?'s past most empathetic posts on Work-Life Balance and The Work Ethic. Next month's contest: Same riddle with Baby Boomers, workaholics, plantation overseers.

One. The person holds the light bulb while the universe revolves around them. (Okay, I stole it from Guy Kawasaki who use it to describe the Mac people from his era at Apple.)

How may Gen X associate lawyers does it take to screw in a light bulb?
That is an impossible question, because screwing in a light bulb is manual labor and Gen X associates would rather sit in the dark than get up off their lazy asses and get their hands dirty.
