@Hatori, I'm sorry rent is 300 points and you only have 162... I can only help you til tomorrow
@Hatori, Great top comment
@Hatori, you aren't "popular" enough yet for people to upvote you without even looking at your comments.
@Good Guy Satan, did he make a deal with you for this?
Cynical sir, I'm not popular enough for that either.
@Good Guy Satan, even though it's only temporary
OJ Simpson was granted parole!
@SpaceJams, the juice is loose
Millennials actually work the same as other generations, except they were screwed over by the insane housing costs, lower wages, far fewer jobs, college tuition etc.
Also millennials don't want to own anything, and they cant! Everything that was once a product is now a subscription service. It's used to be you would hire a samurai, but now you pay the government a military subscription. Nows its cars. You simply pay a subscription to the service of a car.
Millennials are okay with this, and corporations are certainly okay with this.
The old capitalistic method of holding the world hostage is being forced to shift to rentalism. Read the four futures for further reading on the subject
@CapitalismDoesntWork, who are you speaking behalf of? I'm a millennial and I'm not ok living with my parents until 30 and when I move out.... rent. I want to buy.
@CapitalismDoesntWork, snowflakes don't have the same work ethic. I heard one refer to 28 hours a week as "overtime". I come from the school of "that's not my job" is not in my vocabulary. Working with them is a nightmare, especially retail during the holidays. Entitlement bullcrap and instant gratification. That's why you can't own anything
Millennials can buy whatever the hell they want… They just have to be willing to work for the money.
@Malice211, see so many kids want a new car but not willing to save money for it so they lease and go way over on milage and then get screwed cause they can't buy it or pay the mileage fee
Yes you are correct, in your example a millennial wanted something right now, not later after they work for it, because all they want is instant gratification and feel it is there right… Well they can get something right now, it's called a lease, and even the most cursory web search through that cell phone that's permanently attached to their hand would've shown them that leasing sucks. However, they don't think about tomorrow, only today. Christ, I didn't get my first vehicle until I was 20 and, even then, it was an old beater… That was until, got a savings account, and put away money so that I could one day buy the brand-new car that I wanted. Now I am driving around in my brand-new car that is bought and paid for while several millennial's I know are cruising around in nicer vehicles than mine, leased of course, and are shredding their credit rating and destroying any hope of a happy future. But the stereos kick ass and it shiny… So at least they've got that going for them.
@Malice211, I will add in the fact that I don't blame the millennial's 100% for their overall apathy in life… A good chunk of that blame falls on their parents who have instilled this apathy by demanding nothing of them and for basically paying them to stay at home, sit on their ass, and do nothing... and feel proud about it!! Truth be told, the first parent whoever said "let's reward our children just for showing up" should have had all of those participation trophies shoved directly up their ass. if you're not willing to work for something then you don't deserve to have it… Nothing in life is free and a swift kick in the ass never hurt anyone when they needed it.

Host:"aren't you a millennial?"

And it costs so much you can't afford anything else
I don't get it
I don't really like it when I'm referred to as a millennial. I'd like to think that I don't depend on tech or anything like that. I know I think differently because of my age and all that but holy cow do I still prefer to write on paper versus typing.
