I detect a potential lucrative vocation for when I retire.
Uber for people delivery
Grubhub for food delivery
Smarts for brain delivery (How to change a bulb, how to open a stuck jar, etc)
with LEDS, they kind of don't need to. Meanwhile we continue to show my mother in law how to answer her phone.
I thought this was going to be about a Buddy Holly song.
At least you won't have to teach your mom how to change a light bulb, because she'll just guilt trip you with: "It's OK, honey, I'll just sit here in the dark."
If they need to change a light bulb they just call a plumber .
Interesting that they included putting up wallpaper and draining a radiator as simple dyi on par with changing a lightbulb or tightening a loose screw. Um, no.
I wish it were.
Q: How many psychiatrists does it take to change a light bulb?
A: Only one, but the light bulb really has to want to change.
Study Finds: "Boomers Believe Everything they Read on the Internet: Especially anything with the word 'millennial' in it"
Keep in mind while we bemoan today’s youth that they are a reflection of us. Teaching my kids is a vital part of my role as a parent. Their know-how (or lack thereof) in any area is a reflection of what I’ve taught them. The same is true for all kids. Show me a kid who can’t change a light bulb and I’ll show you parents who spoiled them.
also, complaints about the young have persisted since time immemorial: “The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children now are tyrants, not the servants of their households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers.” - Socrates
Youth is wasted on the young though. That much I agree with.
.... or drive a standard transmission, or change a tire, or do a tune up on a car, or set up a guitar, or balance a tone arm, or milk a cow, or ride a horse, or ....wait a minute, I can’t recall doing the last two, uh where’s my cane and spectacles, why I oughta’!
How many millennials does it take to change a light bulb? According to the article, all of them! Or, conversely, one to hold the lightbulb and let the world revolve around him.
Show me a kid who can't change a light bulb but has the skills to find out how and I'll show you parents who prepared that kid to solve problems they never anticipated.
Fortunately, LED light bulbs last at least a year and a half, because I'm not changing light bulbs any more often than I change my guitar strings.
When was the last time you did a tune-up on a car, Bill? I just had one done on my 2006 Kia Sedona, and they had to remove the exhaust manifold to reach two of the plugs. Not something the average do-it-yourselfer can do.
And, I get called on to change light bulbs for my 78 year-old neighbor all the time.....and I doubt she could have managed to do it forty years ago, either.
My 23 year-old grandson does repairs and work on his truck (with assistance of YouTube and google) that I could NEVER do !
My two millennial step-daughters can fix just about anything, but both of their millennial husbands are incredibly worthless in that arena. The common link that I see is way too much time with video games.
Just an observation.
