    I’m in a similar situation and agree that a large percentage of the people at mass wear jeans. Personally I still wear dress pants, but have zero issue with people wearing jeans. The only time I have a problem with what people wear to church is when they look like they just rolled out of bed.

    I hate the word millennial with every fiber of by being.

    I'm a manager at my company, and I'm extremely young compared to most of the others who have been there (in many cases, quite literally) since before I was born. Every year, we have mandatory Human Resources training and a large topic is always how to deal with millennials and how they're changing the landscape. And I suppose it's true, but it's always a very negative part of the training as the attendees take that opportunity to criticize the younger people and their lack of a work ethic. And inevitably, I'm pointed out as an example of how the entire generation isn't lazy. I suppose it's meant to be complimentary, but it always feels condescending. And I dread it year after year.

    Maybe it's just how I was raised (poor, I suppose you could say), but it's always amazing to me when stuff comes out about millennials not knowing about vinyl records before their resurgence in the last couple of years. Or when people say that I didn't know about life before computers. I didn't have a computer until I was 13 and didn't have a cell phone until I was 18. I can certainly remember living without them, and they don't define anything about me.

    I have always had a major problem with generalizations. It's my biggest pet peeve that anyone would perceive to know anything about me based on my age.

    None of this is directed at the OP or anyone in particular in this thread. Just seemed a good place to vent.

    My wife and I are different religions as well, the jeans things seems to be one thing we can agree on lol. She hates it too. Her 65 year old father who is disabled and can barely walk and cant put on a shirt by himself still puts on slacks and a button up shirt for church on Sunday. It just how I was raised, you dont wear jeans to church. I dont say anything to the people, they are there that is what is important, it is just a pet peeve of mine.

    Agree and do all of the same. Definitely not a millennial here. Just a used to be poor person who is still cheap. . For guests I have some cloth napkins. There can never be more than 4 people though....including me.

    I would argue that millennials have given new life to urban homesteading, farmer's market, the concept of considering a businesses values and initiatives when choosing where to spend their money...

    The list goes on, but I like where the world is going as millennials grow into their futures.

    But...I'm a Chase the cheese kind of person.

    But they cost money and you get a few extra with any take out order anyway.

    I suppose if you eat out everyday then maybe, just maybe, you will have enough free ones but beyond that we all need to pay for what we use.

    I have never taken any home from inside the store. But the number most places put in your bag for a DT order more than keeps me in a stash in my console.

    So you’re post was to just call millennials lazy and then have nothing to back it up besides saying read the article which nothing relates to being lazy in the article. IMO. That means “in my opinion” just incase that isn’t understood.

    That's what I have with Spectrum. One DVR in the living room. Everything else is the spectrum app which works fine. 100+ download and 10+ upload for internet.

    Must have gone up quite a bit in the last 2 years.

    Side hustle may be part of the issue? Get a job that pays, work the hours and pay off debt. The millennial does not want an 8-5 gig. Too boring. Have to get up too early. Let’s figure out a get rich quick scheme.

    The silent generation came home from World War II, built the greatest economic engine the world has ever seen, and the strong public institutions necessary to keep it running.

    They handed the keys off to the Boomers, who promptly crashed it into the first bridge embankment they could find.

    Thus far I haven’t been overly impressed with the GenXers attempts to right the ship.

    You’ll forgive me if I’m less than impressed by grandstanding over Millenial malaise as those of us at the older end of that age group look at what lies ahead.
