Millenials say sorry – for everything
I love this Youtube clip. LOVE it.
You see, I’m a Gen Y’er (also known as a Millenial). Just.
Earlier in my career, if I ever felt discriminated against it was almost always because I was female. Couple that with being five-foot-nothing and having a high-pitched voice and it’s a wonder I was ever taken seriously by anyone.
As I’ve aged (says the greying 32-year-old), I’ve found I’m more often offended by ‘slack Gen Y’ comments that are so freely thrown around.
Ageism is so often simply considered as discrimination against seniors.
Yet, complaining about anyone under 33 (yep, I only just make the cut) seems perfectly acceptable. Expected, even.
We’re considered narcissistic, demanding, conceited and lazy. A whole generation sweepingly labelled as generally awful.
Watch the above clip for the perfect response.
And remember, if you’re a Baby Boomer, we’re the product of you. Have a happy day.
