Millennials are criticized for many things. The main criticism is that they're soft and lazy.

If that's the case then surely post millenials are considered to be doubly as soft and lazy. I will add stupid to the mix too. 



If anyone wants to know what happened to Millennials and how they became a lost generation, George Carlin spoke of this in the late '90s and right before he died in 2008 and as someone who was born in the mid '80s, grew up in the '90s and early 2000's and has been an adult for the last 15 years, I can say that he was 100% right, exaggerations aside.

The G. Michael Hopf quote “Hard times create strong men. Strong men create good times. Good times create weak men. And, weak men create hard times” perfectly sums it up. The greatest generation grew up during the Great Depression and World War II. After the war, their hard work and sacrifices over the years led to economic prosperity. There were hard times that created strong men and those strong men created good times. The Baby Boomers were born during the good times. They never knew of the world their parents had to grow up in and never appreciated the sacrifices that were made. Since parents typically had more children back then, a lot of people from both Generation X and the Millennials had the same parents. The values from the Boomers passed on to those generations and we gradually became softer and weaker as a society over time. We also ended up electing softer and weaker politicians as well. So the good times created weak men and now the weak men are starting to create the hard times, though I would argue that we're not there yet. Even the Great Recession could not hold a candle to the Great Depression. During the Great Recession, people were buying shiny new cell phones every year whereas during the Great Depression, people were looking for food to eat. Let that sink in...

It's stupid anyways, can you tell people in Asia who behave differently than all of you they're millennials or whatever other bs gem there is? No because they don;t abide by your rules and classifications. And they are the majority. So they are the norm and you guys are the exception. You can't classify humanity based on exceptions

This is a cyclical thing. Every generation thinks their parents' generation are all out of touch, and they think their children's generation are a bunch of lazy good-for-nothing slackers.

In my experience, the human capacity for being an asshole neither increases nor diminishes with age. I was bullied as a kid, and I know full well how stupid and cruel teenagers can be. The thing is, many of them never grow out of it.

I had a 60-year-old man try to pick a fight with me after he nearly T-boned me in a parking lot after crossing through the lanes instead of going down them (apparently I didn't respect the "fact" that he always has right-of-way). In fact, our daily commutes should remind us that people of all ages often lack basic courtesy and think the whole world revolves around them.

Some of the nastiest customers I've ever had were middle-aged and old people, while oddly enough, despite teens' capacity for nastiness they tend to cause the least problems in retail in my experience. For the past 20 years, I've seen grown-ass adults old enough to have grandkids act like complete idiots and assholes in public.

I've heard nasty bigoted stuff from older generations, who passed that garbage on to many in my generation, who are now passing it on to today's kids, and it will get passed on to generations yet unborn, continuing its long, sad lineage that should have died after the Civil War but still persists with the torch-wielding racist white nationalist and neo-Confederate mobs of today.

Point being, younger generations might have grown up under different circumstances and have different trends in fashion and music and spending habits, which might chap the asses of older folks, but one thing that never changes in human nature and the capacity of people to be idiots and assholes regardless of how young or old they are.

I will say one thing, though: Boomers and Generation X had the best music.

Like the original poster, Millennials can't put a coherent sentence together. Like the 5th post, they also are soooo uninformed. They think they grew up in an era of 'smaller government' because healthcare and college aren't free. Millennials grew up with cable TV and then came of age when the internet took off in the 90's. They also grew up in the era of rap music and hip hop culture influencing them. Their parents both worked out of the home, unlike the 60-70's, so they had a lot of unsupervised time. And probably most importantly, they grew up during the liberal takeover of media and teaching positions. They think they are special and deserve respect, when neither is earned. The parents of millennials are the end of the baby boomers who grew up in the free love hippie takeover of culture. So they were bad parents. And now we are stuck for the future with them.

Unfortunately a lot of millenials support things like social justice, tolerance, the welfare state and many other collectivist ideas. So you get lumped in with them by virtue of belonging to the same age group.

Shouldn't we always be tolerant?
