Move Over "Gen X" - It's the All-New, All-Different Millennials

I feel old now :(
 
Millennial :)
Generation X...I'll always think of the D-Generation X theme song.
 
Remember, watch the video. This is more or less a discussion about it. I personally am a bit worried by the video, especially the part where they say that Millennials "can't take criticism" and "need to be talked to like a Therapist. I'm old enough that I remember Reagan and *some* of the eighties, and being tough enough to take criticism is a virtue. This generation seems very weak willed.
 
Some parts of North London have become so Nathan Barley it isn't even funny.
 
I always thought the new generation was called "Generation Y"
 
I cant watch streaming here at work. what ages is this "Millenial" generation?
 
A lot of good points touched in the videos. I wish I would've caught in on tv. A lot of things I agree with, pluses and cons with my generation that I've seen and experienced myself.
 
This silly need to give each generation a name or a label is lame. That said, if they act like a ***** I will be the first one to tell them so. : olderandwiser: :up:

I moved over a long time ago -- just leave me in peace you little Millennial bastards

You will be forced into a nursing home.

I let my employees wear what they want to work, unless we have meetings. There has been studies done, and the workers are actually more productive.
 
Millennials suck-there a bunch of hippies!:cmad:



Long live BALKI, GO BOTS, MONA, ANGELA, JUDITH LIGHT, READING RAINBOW, NINTENDO, SEGA MASTER SYSTEM, HE MAN, SHE RA, GHOSTBUSTERS, AND HELL EVEN BOB SAGET. :cmad:
 
It's always baby boomers coming up with these stupid labels. Gen X, Gen Y, the MTV generation, the iPOd generation, Generation TRL, Millenials. Some baby boomer marketing type explains their labels to some octogenarian journalist and they both have a good laugh.

meh I've seen other studies that say that poor schmoes like me who have to dress formally everyday are more productive.
 
However it does sound as though this generation is simply young and hasn't had that dose of reality yet that we all get at some point.
 
these kids don't take criticism nicely? that's what happens when you raise them to be spoiled brats who think they deserve anything and everything just for being there

let's just hope the good times last forever for these guys
 
they are going to be even lazier than my generation. good luck world.
 
All the shootings in school are proof of how well they take criticism. Somebody says something bad about me, I put a bullet in their forehead.
 
I hate the fact that the "kids" (I used that term lightly, since they were obviously adults) said "we don't have to settle", meaning they didn't feel like they had to do a job that wasn't fun or didn't cater to their special needs. :rolleyes:

My Dad has run a business as long as I've been alive, and that's not the purpose of your employer. Lifestyle and friends may come first as long as you a) show up to work and b) don't let your lifestyle or friends conflict with the job you do. We have several people in my father's Foundry who are immature, go out and party...but they come to work every morning and do their jobs no questions asked. These kids are ridiculous. I'd throw them out on their ass.
 
In other news, this thread has the best title of the day.
