If I were a millennial watching the current behavior of older generations I would definitely want to cry!!

Leave me alone, I am a grumpy old man.

That was Clinton, I thought.  Oh that was something else.

We have collaboration areas. They look like Austin Powers would use them. They have weird shaped furniture and cone of silence 2 person pods. also a conference room with a garage door. They also bring in comfort dogs and have corn hole in the cafe. I have not used any of this stuff.

I just walked by a cube in my building and it has a name tag called Innovation Room with bunch of bean bags in it.  WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They probably expect a trophy for asinine idea too. It is f'ing work. Do your job!!!!!!!!

I am a millennial. These things are not so popular. Its viewed as a dumb gimmick. We want higher wages, not bean bags.

Average age of my team at work is 61.5, but I am parent of four millennials.

 

Observations:

Cell phones are life.

Dogs are popular, kids are not.

Dining out is everything.

Neck ties are nothing.

Marriage is optional.

Car ownership - meh.

Soda is the new cigarettes.

Timeliness - meh.

Does anybody date anymore?

Church - meh.

Electric scooters are hot, e-bikes are not.

Admittedly, the little buggers are good at IT:-)

I have realized people are quickly turning on Facebook and Snapchat. I was never into Instagram but I think it is also declining.

Juul, the e cigarettes band, probably has doubled the smoking rates among college student in the last year.

Driving is viewed as a chore for us. We have to put down our phones. We are definitely more uptight about drinking and driving, often actually refusing to have a single drink and drive. Something my parents don’t mind doing.

The rest are pretty accurate.

I hope you guys realize when the 1,000 angriest people tweet about something, it becomes a controversy, because that's all it takes to trend, and then some reporter makes it into clickbait. I am pretty sure that's why we have all these winy controversies

My feelings are hurt by that comment.

We now have a number of these around the campus.  One has furry bean bags and a large screen monitor playing screensavers of dogs and landscapes.  They are intimidated by conference rooms.

 

Will the crying closets be far behind?

I can't tell if that Cry Closets article is for real or satire like The Onion. And if it's real then I have to wonder if just maybe that kids' school project was meant to suggest that sensitivity culture has gone too far. Im really trying to believe it's not as ridiculous as it looks.

It is Slate.  It has to real.
