A groaner a day keeps the doctor away!
Every time there is one of these millennial bashing threads I think of how my grandkds, their spouses, and friends I have met are nothing like that. They are all hard working home owner types.
To think that all members of any generation are cut from the same cloth is just plain silly. I remember some of my parents friends that couldn't walk and chew gum, and they were from the so called greatest generation.
This "survey" sounds like a crock to me.
Yes, it is unbelievable.
My daughter, a millennial, can drive a manual transmission car, change a tire, milk a cow and ride a horse. She was brought up in an urban/suburban area.
She doesn't play guitar or have a record player.
It's all down to how they were brought up.
Better an idiot than a WW2 German soildier.
It's obvious that a millennial created that meme. Doesn't know the difference between a WWII stahlhelm and a PASGAT helmet
Perhaps someone has already offered this analogy but many of us know or have met people who are unable or unwilling to pull and replace tubes in their amps on their own. To me that seems not too far removed from being unable or unwilling to replace a light bulb.
They are! I can't speak for Idaho, but around here in Northern VA I know and do business with lots of Millennials who are hard working, educated, well traveled, resourceful, and just plain gettin' it done. I personally don't know any of the kind your talking about, although I'm sure they're out there...
On a positive note, your resume and life experiences are impressive! My hat's off to you, and to your parents for raising you right! All the best.
Empty sincerity and self-conscious optimism bugs me the most, because so much of it is social media-driven...
Our economic system has gradually (and not so gradually) pushed people away from the self-sufficiency end of the spectrum toward the complete dependence end. The natives used to live in near complete wild in small tribes, but we know what happened there. Farm families used to depend largely upon themselves and other farm familes for their livelihoods. And on and on. I don't know why anyone should be surprised at the situation today with millennials. It's part of the ongoing progression that has been happening for a long time.
Not sure how this got to become considered necessarily a postive attribute/trait. To me it means likely willing to indulge oneself in the luxury of travel (see also trustafarian)
Maybe someone should talk to some Amish millennials....
Ha! They probably don't know how to change light bulbs neither!
Is some respects, I envy the Amish way of living. Tight communities, largely self-sufficient, able to avoid the traps of modern society, living with immediate purpose. In other respects, they are pretty hideous.
It isn't, necessarily, but its a good thing to see what you can of the world, if you're able to...
They would likely say the same of you
My previous post was meant to point out the kind of experiences I was able to gain at a young age in a small town/rural environment. I was not at all unusual among my peers. My point was that I, and my friends took advantage of what ever was available to learn and tried things that were new to us every chance we got.. Kids in more urban/suburban settings seemed to be doing much the same with the things that were available to them. I just don't see the same sort of reaching for new experiences going on with youngsters today.
Seems to me that this entire thread is a violation of this:
