    This joke is so overused, any generation in charge is going to talk shit about the next generation and how its spoiled/etc.

    It's so dumb to point out facts;

    "Oh you guys have it better!"

    Like, no shit? Would you rather things be worse?

    Millineials have had to go through 9/11, 2009 housing crash, ISIS, multiple school shootings. Most of the massive companies we all know bloomed during this era. Gay marriage was federally legalized (stupid this was illegal unless youre a bible thumper)

    Meanwhile, lets look at generation X.

    Fall of the Berlin Wall...ok?
    Challenger Disaster...wow :(
    Jonestown Suicide...k
    Grunge and Hip Hop :(lel)


    I think if anyone deserves praise it is the Millennials just by the pure evidence.

    Millennials want to sit at home all day and make money playing video games while never being disagreed with or challenged. 'Nuff said.

    Let me guess, you're a millennial.

    What do you mean, go through it? They're kids through all that stuff. The adults are the one's that have to deal with it.

    As an older Millenial, all I have to say is that we're:

    Less likely to commit violent crime.
    Better educated.
    Get married and have kids later in life when we're more financially stable.

    This is despite having crippling student loan debt and damn near no chance of getting social security, among other things. But the older generations still harp on and on about how we're pussies, entitled, yadda yadda.

    We're the superior generation by almost any measure... using actual statistics. The generation after us is on pace to be better than us. It's just how things work.

    Other gens went to work and took care of their shit . Millennials want to be heard about them bitching about something, everyone feels special and and unique. Feeling of entitlement and after all this demanding respect. Just stfu and go to work and finish school

    That and calling young people "snowflakes." Y'all paid for pet rocks! The younger generation is messed up, but I attribute a large portion of that to bad parenting, lack of strong mentors, and allowing technology to raise our kids.

    And as far as the whole snowflake thing...I have found that the people who use that term are usually the ones who are soft af. Case and point? This whole Nike/Kaepernick thing.

    Its so funny talking to older gens. It's not about working hard, its about effieceny. As an example, I was talking to an Xer about how one of our processes is being streamlined with a new Excel setup we got going on, shaving hours off of our workloads.

    He starts ranting "Oh, when we were starting out we didn't even have calculators! We had to do things by hand and we really learned the process in and out"

    bro- who gives a fuck if you can long divide 20501508626 by 5815351 when I can take a calculator and save myself the work. Its such a dated way of thinking.

    You have porn on demand.

    Back in my day you were lucky to find a porno mag in the woods. Plus there was that extra syllable at the end of what is now just known as porn. Brutal existence.

    Are millennials responsible for mumble rap?

    If so they should be the butt of every joke.

    Anyhow, millennials' come off as very entitled and flakey.

    Generational debates are not always the same.

    The technology aspect is critical.

    You don't seem to understand so I'll spell it out for you: having to do difficult things makes you better at other things.

    Wasting time doing unnecessarily difficult things makes you better at doing unnecessarily difficult things. If you run 2 hours to work everyday you will be better at doing difficult things, and you will be better at running to work. However, I would have saved plenty on time and be an overall more efficient and effective employee than you.

    Likewise, when I can deposit a check, check my balances and reroute money through an app, but you are stedfast that you must go physically to the bank, well guess who's going to be faster?

    Speed is the name of the game in this generation, and the turtles aren't beating the rabbits.

    The Nike/Kap thing is nothing. 48 hours news. I'm finding most people are having fun with it by making multiple edits to the kap/nike picture like this one I saw here on sherdog yesterday.

    This new fad of blaming younger generations is disturbing. Where did this come from?



    Must be a lack of stern father figures, like Paul Lynde...
