Lol stupid millennials trying to enter the workforce during the biggest recession since the great depression

#6 1 year ago

I really questioned if it was real.
Funny how it was hidden up top on the shelf.

#7 1 year ago

Is there a safe space and a crying closet on the board?

Do people realize that millennials are people abetween the ages of 25 and 35? Millennials aren’t just the college kids.

This game looks like some out of touch Gen Xers tried to make something to engage millennials, but instead offended them by filling it with stereotypes. So dumb.

The term has morphed into younger annoying people; it happens. Try to figure out what a hipster is now.

I do. I'm a millennial. The hate on them always makes me laugh.

It's like listening to grandparents say elvis was gonna make all the kids sex crazed heathens.

No it's nothing like that. You do sound like a true millennial!

Sure it is. If all you kids and your rock and roll woulda just gotten off their lawn this never woulda been a problem. Lol.

Every generation thinks the new one is garbage. I'm pretty sure it's history goes back to the stone age.

It's going to be hard to understand as a millennial but it's the softest generation we've ever seen. I've actually bought stock in Kleenex bc of all the tears they're shedding.

Truly the participation trophy generation

#16 1 year ago

Wow, lol, that gave me a good laugh. It also reminded me of this Family Guy clip.

Truth.

But who handed them the trophies? I think generations tend to be products of the people and family units that raised them. So perhaps all generations would benefit from a long look in the mirror.

That being said I dont identify much with people my own age, so perhaps you're right. All my colleagues and friends are in their 50s.

"When I was young, we lived in a brown paper bag in the bottom of a septic tank.

You tell the young people that now, and they won't believe you."

It's like anything else, mellinials seem like the worst thing possible but generation Z is going to have us begging for them back!
My daughter is gen alpha and already pissing me off.

Quoted from JodyG:

Baby boomers... Dot get me started on those goddamn hippies.

Quoted from wolverinetuner:

When I was young, we lived in a brown paper bag in the bottom of a septic tank

True story...So there was this kind of wild bush tree thing flourishing in an unwatered area of our property near the septic tank for several years, we are also in a drought so this always puzzled me.

So we recently bought a travel trailer and after our first trip I went to empty out the Black/grey into our septic tank...popped the lid off and the water was up to it with some roots floating

After having it pumped out, I pop my head in and sure enough there is a literal wall of roots down the side stemming from a main 4 inch diameter root...no choice but to go in...

So I gear up with work clothes, head light, electric chainsaw and venture in...a quick glance up at the ceiling reveals hundreds of comfortable black widows nestled away within the concrete imperfections...I make quick work of the root wall into 3 sections with my electric chainsaw, each one falling with a great splash into the remaining 4 inches of excrement as I stand on a small step stool.

I don’t think that has anything to do with monopoly or millennials

Not technically, but I do take a nap after my vegan lunch every day...

The game should come with a phone app so parents can watch them play and weigh in on every move.

Lol! Those wacky millennials and their *squints at palm* inability to access financial security due to the abhorrent systemic greediness of the previous generations! Hashtag ukelele!

Luxury!!! You were lucky to have a paper bag. We had to work in the mill 26 hours a day and pay for the privilege! When we got home our father would kill us and dance on our graves!

I used to beat up those guys. I was a ripped jeans/ denim and unlaced boots punk.

At least now my boots are laced up. *finger snap and point.*
