Today’s Daily Prompt asks about generations. I’m a Millenial, which means that I’m part of the generation under scrutiny right now. And this is something I simply don’t understand.
First of all, there’s the fact that all generations have been slammed by the generations before them for being all kinds of messed up. But hey, that’s life – we all grow up and do to our kids what our parents do to us.
But what makes people think that this is something worth getting worked up over? I read an article recently about things Millenials want in a job (respect from their employer, basically – groundbreaking, that.) So many of the comments basically said this: “So what? Why should we cater to these people?”
And to that, I say, are you seriously suggesting that society should ignore the opinions of all the people younger than you? … I don’t even know how to address this. I’m in an Audit lecture and I’m freezing. My point is this: Time is linear. Like it or not, I’m the future, and so are my peers. So I suggest you get to know us.
