Easy... 25% of their stress is coming from their phone.

Get rid of it.

Also... I've yet to meet one of them that could make it to work on time daily.

:lol: They're so cute...

But I get it. Parents have always tried to ease their kids' way. It's just that my generation had it fairly easy, so easing our kids meant "protecting" them from literally anything that might cause them disappointment or sadness. I feel like I spoiled the chit out of my daughter, but she was a galley slave compared to her peers.

Kids these days don't know how to adult because Mommy and Dad never taught them how.

#8 is the only one that I stress about. Harder and harder as I get older to remember the PINs and passwords.

#8 for me!! So damn frustrating. Especially at work. We get a reminder to change our passwords every 3 months. You cant use one you used before. I'm running out of ideas!!!

What gets me is they think this makes them the most stressed out generation in history.

My mom would tell me stories of the war when her Dad was a POW in Japan (although they had no idea)
and scrambling for food. They saved enough pennies to buy a bag of sugar and dropped it in the road
on the way home.

When they came back for it with a bag - someone had already swept all the sugar away - it had been stolen.
Off the street.

They didn't think this was STRESSFUL. It's just the way it was. She and her six siblings were happy.

I think they're probably the most self-absorbed generation in history.

The Yankees invaded my town, took all our food and burned our house.
Girl, I'm there! The other day I dropped my phone and the screen cracked.

Listening to them makes me want to smack their vapid entitled faces. They've never endured any real hardship, so things like slow wifi are tragedies to them.

The survey of 2,000 Millennials was commissioned by CBD oil company Endoca and carried out by OnePoll.
Not sure I'd put too much weight in that, but it may have some truth to it.



Regardless, this should be a sign that things aren't nearly as bad as everyone makes it out to be. The left thinks everyone who disagrees with them is a nazi/fascist and the right thinks everyone who disagrees with Trump is a progbot and every millenial is socialist. Both sides think this Country will come to a flaming demise if we don't elect their guy/girl. The reality is, we live in a time of great technology and safety. Everyone has a smart phone and a wealth of information available to them at any time (sort of a shame it's not used more, but I digress). Everyone is more attached to their phones, and it's not limited to millenials (as evidenced by some comments in this thread).

If millenials have problems, they stem from their parents and government.

Parents don't let kids go play unsupervised and expect kids to not make mistakes during a period of time in their lives when they should, and government is the one punishing parents for letting their kids walk to school or play alone in a park. Government (both sides) has pushed common core standards aimed at herding kids to college and not preparing them for a life outside of school. Social Security is a welfare scheme enjoyed by older people at the expense of millenials with no remote solution in sight. Millenials, the "entitled generation", isn't even expecting to be entitled to the benefits other generations are. The student loan crisis came about from the government subsidizing student loans, thus driving up tuition costs. Government places hiring police officers in schools, or teachers unions, above student's learning. They place mandatory suspensions or "no tolerance" policies above individual students.

Parents don't let kids go play unsupervised
Because CPS will beat on your door and haul your ass down to the precinct
I don't let them ride their bikes in the street, because some dumb uninsured schmuck down the street will drive down it at 70 mph and when you tell the cops, they'll ask "what do you want me to do about it?" (real answer).

We had a renter a few years back who called us about 8 months into her lease to tell us she wouldn't be paying the rent anymore because having to pay bills caused her to have stress. When my husband told her having a deadbeat renter caused us to have stress and she'd have to move out, she let us know that she'd be moving back in with her mommy, but her mommy wouldn't be ready for her to move back in (to her childhood home) for a couple of months. Two peas, one pod.
