Mine's boring and normal (me 1980s, parents 1950s, grandparents 1920s, etc…)

But my best friend was born in 1986, his dad was born in 1955, and HIS dad was born in 1889!

When he tells people his grandfather was born in 1889, they say "you mean your great-grandfather?" and he likes to say "No, my great-grandfather owned slaves."
