Out of the Blue

Today is Ash Wednesday, so hats off (literally) for all who are celebrating. This means I forgot yesterday was Shrove Tuesday. So I missed Mardi Gras, and more tragically, Pancake Tuesday, as I love pancakes. Well, I blew my chance to get plastic beads for flashing my goods, but at least I can still get some pancakes, so I'll have to content myself with that.

Millennials didn't raise themselves. Also, learn from history. People used to whine that Generation X was the worst ever. Old people whine about young people because to they're too lazy to do anything else.

Don't be a stereotype. And if your company is hiring bad employees, fix your hiring process.

I know you love being right, but I suspect you hate being wrong even more so let me stop you from going down the path you're taking.

In my "nothing is worse" anecdotes about Millennials never did I state laziness or bash their work ethic — quite the opposite. From first-hand observations, Millennials are hard working task-oriented individuals. There's a boom of creativity with all the new industries they've created like pro-streaming and professional gaming. They have also given us products like Facebook, Youtube, Myspace, Twitter, Instagram, Uber and so forth. All of it birthed from an always-connected existence.

What I was noting in my posts was their total lack of knowledge of particular things combined with their lack of wanting to query persons who do know things. It has led to them discussing "gender neutrality," "cultural appropriation day," and now "what reaching age 30 is like" all of which are "nothing worse than" moments for me.

As a generation, they are equal parts Will Hunting and that bar guy Will owns with his apple metaphor. They invariably attempt to one-up each another with their head knowledge and get into little feuds over who's right and wrong, and boy do they love to prove the other wrong even when it is painfully obvious they have no idea of what they're talking about. That's where Millennials sit for me. I think rhetoric is making a strong come-back with this generation.
