"A Prudent man sees danger and takes refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it". Proverbs 22:3
Way to true I am afraid.
Thank you so much, that was so enlightening. I am happy to say that over the last 8 years I believe my taxes have made a huge difference.
$2,900 is not really that much when you think about it. If we could save just 1 Millennial it would be worth it. We sent $5,800.Montana Guy and Montana Gal
By all means! Whatever it takes to keep the Special Snowflakes happy and in their safe space. Maybe a GoFund Me page to buy more Play-doh?
Don't forget the adult coloring books and the stuffed animals!
That is a huge generalization about an entire demographics of the population. Being from that generation myself, I'm fairly used to these videos (that one is not the first and certainly won't be the last). I'm sure that I'm about to get severe criticism for this, but it’s quite annoying listening to the same garbage. Are there people out there that perpetuate this stereotype? Absolutely. I don't think anyone would deny it - but then, there are freeloaders in every generation.Assuming millenials exhibit this behavior more than other generations, the next logical question would be "Why?" I have to believe that it is in part because they're allowed to act like that. They weren't whipped when they should have been. As the video says, participation medals are given instead of allowing children to learn what failure means. Is that pushing the blame to elder generations? Maybe in part. But this kind of behavior can only occur if it is allowed. All children try to get out of work – one of the jobs of a parent is to teach them that hard work is a virtue.It’s funny how many people want to point out this issue, but how few would actually admit that their children are part of the problem.-Blind Ambition
I am the one who showed this to mumsy, I laughed extremely hard at this video because I know people who would gladly let others pay for their lives. I find it very hard to be offended by things like this because honestly it is mostly true. I am apart of this generation as well, and yet I hold down a job and own a house...I have delivered babies and spent more time then I care to admit in the back of a ambulance...but I find that no one ever calls me a snow flake or even calls me a millennial, I believe it is because I act like a adult...many in our generation do not and are continually complaining how unfair life treats them and how "mean" the older generation are to them...they like to foist the blame onto our elders instead of just quietly proving they are worth their salt....we are a sad generation, and I honestly am ashamed to be apart of it...however complaining about it will not change were I am in life, the only thing to do is to pull ourselfs up by our bootstraps and stop complaining and change how others see us.

This is so funny, and so sad at the same time
I am from the tail end of the Baby Boomer generation, but most of the people I work with are Millennials, and none of them fit the stereotype, other than one guy wears clear framed hipster glasses. Trust me, the previous generations had their share of whiners. More than a few of my relatives are(or were) "Brown Bottle Babies" (drunks), who think those of us who choose not to drink up every dime owe them whatever it is they want at the moment. Freeloaders aren't new-they just have the Internet to make themselves known.
