What's Up at Work?

What's up with the person stealing the food out of the fridge, or the person who talks too loudly, or the boss who has unreasonable expectations?

What's up with colleagues in their early thirties who are less than 10 years my senior (in some cases only 5 or 6 yrs) but make the age gap seem more like 25 years with their hyper-formal, email pushing work-styles? The few extra years in the workforce has left them emitting the attitude that they are above doing work (beyond delegating), collaboration is a foreign concept, and fun is unacceptable.

What is up with that? Am I missing something about the 'generation gap'?
