Millennials get a boatload of sh*t for supposedly being a generation of entitled, self-obsessed adults who act like children. I'd dispute that characterization, even though we did invent the term 'adulting' to describe doing basic survival-related tasks like cooking, cleaning, going to the post office, etc. Rapidly changing social mores and digital media's proliferation exacerbate the generation gap between Millennials and Gen Xers/Boomers, so I'm not surprised they find us alienating. However I AM surprised that older adults are so ~~confounded~~ by Millennials' love of avocado toast, smartphones, and social media - can't they recall a time when their brand of youth culture confused their parents? It's all relative is what I'm saying.
Imagine my relief at coming across this 'rant' on Reddit that explains exactly why Millennials are the way they are. It made me feel sane and understood, especially because like the author I also graduated high school in 2009 - right after the economy crashed.
