“That we don’t want to buy houses. Many millennials grew up during the housing crisis. Houses aren’t a great investment; they mean taking more loans, and the average salary of a 30-year-old hasn’t increased in 30 years, while everything else has.” —u/ConneryFTW

12. Won’t work to pay for school

“Literal conversation I had with a friend once:

‘I don’t understand; if school is so expensive, why don’t you get a job that will help you pay for it? Everyone’s hiring!’

Yes, Carol. They’re hiring at minimum wage 20 hours a week. That doesn’t cover rent, let alone an education.” —u/justhereforthepupper

13. iPads

“I am a student dentist. Had a baby boomer patient say that my generation of doctors relies too heavily on technology. This was in response to me looking up their medication on my iPad.” —u/Macabalony

14. Phones!

“‘Millennials are too obsessed with phones!’

They’re pocket devices that allow me to keep in contact with friends and access any information in the world. Fuck yeah, I’m going to use my phone.” —u/DocOcarina

15. Not the first at all

“My wife went to a generational differences seminar where they discussed basically how to co-exist with your co-workers decades older or younger than you to work effectively.

The presenter read an article, and it said, ‘The current workforce fears the incoming generation will enter the workforce feeling entitled, demanding a higher wage, with a work-life balance.’ The presenter then went on to ask, ‘Can anyone guess which generation they were referring to?’ Pretty much the entire room said ‘millennials’ with much disdain.

The presenter corrected them and said, ‘Actually the article I just read was from 1948.’

Turns out people will always hate the incoming generation, forever, guaranteed.” —u/deleted
