Like it or not the voter block that voted for the idiots in control are boomers, but they will be all gone in a decade or two, and whether or not you hate them or love them the younger generation will start to take over and hopefully fix what there parents and grand parents have broken.

Oh and the "greatest generation" also accused the boomers of do nothing and all about me.....

Fix what's broken? You mean fixing attitudes of self entitlement, lack of work ethic and not facing responsabilities?

Great reply, I can hardly wait till a millennial entrepreneur ends up hiring other Millennials and sees how all those points in the original post work in real life. People who, just starting adult life out wanting to be on the top without putting forth the effort are going to have life smack all their teeth out. Life rewards those willing to do what the masses won't or can't. There really aren't any shortcuts to success, you have to put forth more effort than others will. Millennials lack that ability for the most part. Keep whining about how screwed your generation is because of other generations, someone will fill the void left by your lack of ambition. Then you can whine about how this new group "stole" your birthright.

Stop whining, Start doing. Till then all you are going to get is laughing at you.

The millennials are gonna save the world?? LOL

Most, NOT ALL, but MOST

-Most of the "millennials" that I know are lazy, have tattoos all over themselves, do not own land or a home, and aren't very intelligent. If anyone changes anything, it will most likely be GENERATION X!

I don't see anywhere on that list the following:

We will complain loudly on internet forums when we can't get jobs.
We will complain how unfair the modern world is because we can't get jobs.
We will complain how unfair a company is since they wont hire me because I won't work overnight.
We will complain when my sense of entitlement doesn't get me anything in life.
We will complain how a company is discriminating against me because I have 27 gauge holes in my ears and ink all over my face .

I support and applaud your enthusiasm and you do make some good points.

However, this whole "Millennials are the more better bestest generation" crap kills the moment.


I've raised two 'Millennials' neither have an over bloated artificially inflated ego and this higher opinion of self as do some.







I don't think there is a "best" generation.

That's a very arrogant position.

If you've noticed most of my responses have been fairly reasonable and non of the have been personal attacks.

I think a lot depends on the perspective of the situation. I was very old school when it came to work, never late, worked til my job was done, and always stepped up as a team player at my last job. Well my company was having major problems financially and I discovered 2 separate ways to save a lot of money. One way actually completely changed the company allowing for us to make quite a bit. My immediate boss took the idea and gave it to his boss....the big boss then sent it over somewhere else and used it as his idea. Our company had a policy that if you can find ways to save money you can get up to 10% of the profit. I should have had a million bucks by now but instead they claimed it was collectively thought of by us all and no one got the money. Never even heard a thank you. I resigned shortly after. I'm since retired at a young age. I don't make a lot but I make enough to not have to work and Ill never work for someone again. Rather be my own boss. I get the new generation now. You get f*cked with enough and you just don't care about where you work.

I would give you applause if I could. This will have to do.



You have a very good grasp of how to push buttons, start a conversation and then keep it civil.

You ought to look into a job in marketing.
I hear it pays well.

Yup, and for whatever else pisses them off!

We will complain how unfair the modern world is because we can't get jobs.

Yes, but they have grown up in this world you created, and they will try to make it better.

We will complain how unfair a company is since they wont hire me because I won't work overnight.

Some will!

We will complain when my sense of entitlement doesn't get me anything in life.

How is there sense of entitlement anymore larger than yours?

We will complain how a company is discriminating against me because I have 27 gauge holes in my ears and ink all over my face .

Humans must conform to our corporate overlords is so baby boomer!!!

Been there, done that. One of the things that many people don't get is if you say you're retired, they automatically assume you are rich/wealthy. This is not the case for most retirees.

They are either to old or hurt to work most jobs or have had it with the system and cashed in what they have. Regardless, they have to budget as well.

While Real Estate agents say that there is a big house movement going on, (How in today's economy I have no idea and think they are lying), the Tiny House movement IS booming. People are downsizing and re-prioritizing as well.

Weren't you the one who posted a thread basically telling baby boomers to either Die or get out of the way so you could have their jobs because they were obsolete?


Limmie check

Hey baby boomers, die or get out if the way.

Then there was this remark from another thread that basically states Millennial superiority.

No we are literally the most educated generation ever on the planet as far as we know.


Really?

It's foolish to compare the education levels. They knew at 10 what you knew at 20.

My kids were using a mouse and the power of a personal computer at 3, can you even compare the amount of knowledge a kid raised using a pc has compared to a child that doesn't?

Yup I post that thread and on the first page I clearly point out that I made the title to draw attention to the thread. Otherwise it probably would have received less attention.

It's not my fault you have to make a play on emotions to get anyone to pay attention to an issue.

We are the most educated generation ever.

You don't like facts?

There is literally more college graduates now there ever before this is an irrefutable fact supported by statistical data.

There's nothing to debate.

How smart would any generation be? and what one would die in 30 days without it?

Wanna compare prescription drug use between millennial and boomers? And who dies if the grid breaks down?
