I-Bums tend to deny their bum-status by stating that they deserve a break after college
. They also tend to travel in groups, and rigorously post photos of their travels on their Xanga, MySpace
, or Blog pages. They believe
that by doing this, they do not qualify as a bum of any sort. However, bum-status is given to anyone with no job, no plans and no money.
