Him....not so much so.
Welcome to the 21st century.
I thought she did quite well: I mean, it was a job interview, so she was able to spend less than half the time staring at her phone.
That was flacid and predictable attempt at humor aimed at a very specific bitter crowd of folks yelling at the clouds. I guess you can leave any sense of wit out when you're pandering to the crowd.
Yes, funny it was not.
remind us again what contemporary slang and insults were used to disparage your generation back when you were young
I thought it was funny, I don't care who you are.
Actually it was pretty spot on. So in this case not very funny and in reality quite dire
How was it spot on?
If it was funny it'd have self awareness.
Last I checked there's mountains of old folks all over social media, in Starbucks, fraught with narcissistic personality tendencies.
So, no, it was not funny. It was the classic "I know you are but what am I?"
I’m a gentleman. I see no generational difference.
I agree it wasn’t humorous to me either. Then again, I looked very carefully and could find no claim comedic value made by the OP. Obviously, it was a greatly exaggerated portrayal of a stereotypical millennial. I suppose the satirical nature of the piece implies comedy.
In any event, I rather admire millennials in that they aren’t willing to compromise having balance in their lives. It’s a much more healthy way t live. When I was an up and comer that age, we were told to believe that the Japanese model of a business career was work, work, work, power lunch, work, work. Then the Japanese started dropping like flies from stress and burnout. They even had a name for it, but I think it loosely translated to “drop dead disease” IIRC. Now, I’ve read the Japanese have completely shifted to a paradigm where work hours are totally flexible and the focus is a balanced, well adjusted employee who is more productive than one who is toast from overwork. Maybe we should follow suit again.
Good for millennials for their unwillingness to compromise. As a whole.
I happen to like most of the millennials I know, but I also believe we should all be able to make fun of ourselves - then I think it's ok to make fun of others too
When I get done yelling at the clouds, I think I may fwd this to my 19 yo daughter, who is about half-way through her second year of a crushing Engr/CS program.

It’s not funny because it’s true.
All humor ‘panders’ to an audience.
Most humor pokes fun at somebody. It would be just as easy to say millennials will get defensive over this because they ‘trigger’ easily and constantly. Boomers get made fun of all the time on here. They yell at clouds forget the question and move on.
if you have ever had to do hiring interviews for a specific possition, you actually get quite a few that borderline on this type , its just that it is not restricted to millenials , trust me,
each generation has their finest crawl out of the wood work , I had one tell me she would not accept the starting salary base but quoted her self a starting raise,and her holiday expectations , plus benifits , but was surprised when she did not get the job, I wonder why?
Well, you know, if you have to make a Lakers game that night, how could you possibly work that day?
It's not true though, at all. And great humor usually involves at least a spatter of self-awareness. The behavior typified in the video was "Suave old man in charge" "dumb young girl that's full of herself doing millennial things."
Meanwhile, last I checked Twitter is now the favorite National platform for spamming important discourse at any time of day....that is irony. Just like when I go to thanksgiving I'm going to be staring at a bunch of elders sitting around on their tablets/phones on facebook while the rest of us play with the kids.
What happens to the generation that said 'never trust anyone over 30' once they are over 30?
