The truth about millennials is millennials are the worst. Millennials are awful. Millenials are annoying. At least that’s what the hashtags and the memes tell me, and I believe them. After all, millennials are people, and there are a lot of awful, annoying people out there. It stands to reason that at least some millennials are awful, but they aren’t the only ones.
You know who else is awful? Baby Boomers. Baby Boomers are the worst. Oh, and the Greatest Generation were awful, too, and the Lost Generation and whoever came before that. Generation Z will clearly be awful (and possibly zombies?). And, yes, I must admit that even my generation, Generation X, is awful. People, regardless of age, are awful (sometimes even “deplorable”), but all these generations (even Millennials) can also be wonderful because there are a lot of wonderful people out there too.
I don’t judge people by their birth years. I have friends in the their 70s and their 20s and everything in between. People who annoy me span many ages as well.
I don’t care how old you are. If you are interesting and kind I will probably like you, at least a little. Your generation informs your experiences but does not define you. It’s up to you whether you will be the best of your generation or part of the worst. Choose wisely, and behave accordingly.
I will admit there is something that annoys me about millennials: Millennials often make me feel old. But that’s my problem not theirs.
