I didn’t think I was a millennial until I had a meeting at work. It was a managers only meeting and it “taught” us different ways to deal with different generations of employees. I fall under the age rage (1988) but still refused to be looped in with the younger kids I had to manage. BUT it said “millennials prefer text over phone calls and emails” and I was like... damn that me. So, as an “elder millennial” I feel like there should be something in the middle between gen x and millennial... because we were born and raised without huge technology, but were introduced to it at a fairly young age where as younger millennials were born into the tech and social media culture... if that makes sense. Am I rambling? I’m rambling
@Leslie Knope 2020, doesn’t mean you’re not right though. From one 88 baby to the other I agree!
@Leslie Knope 2020, this is true though! And just to clarify, I hate everyone
@Leslie Knope 2020, you guys do know that the millennial generation started in 81 and ended in the mid 90s. The youngest millennial are finished with college and are in the work force. Lots of people think of Gen Z when someone mentions millennials.
@Leslie Knope 2020, I think you may just be mistaken as to the names of the generations. Millennials are people born roughly between 1980 and 1999 while anybody born after ‘99 or before ‘80 is definitely not a millennial. So you’re pretty solidly a millennial and perhaps are mistaking the new generation (born ‘99 and after) as millennials.
@Leslie Knope 2020, as a fellow old millennial can relate to this. I struggle to relate to “kids” 5 years younger than me. I’m 33 ffs 5 years shouldn’t make a difference like that
@BigJohnson86, dude. im 26 and cant relate to most in my age group. its mostly depends on your upbringing.
And a generation after all of them that really hates themselves
I find Xers more annoying than Boomers.
@big freedom, trying to be anti-establishment against things that aren’t really in charge of culture anymore (Reagan politics, metal music is the edgiest, Christian Grandmothers, etc.) and I believe their obsession with everything that happened in when they were a teenager and dismissal of anything that’s happens since then has led to everything being a sequel and a reboot.
Millennials do that crap too, but Xer’s started it.
@big freedom, boomers are retired. X-ers are who've been destroying shît for the last 20 years. X-ers are literally the douche bags wearing a polo and pink shorts with date rape drugs and cocaine in the pocket back in 1980, who now are greedy politicians and bankers. tmyk
@sonofafishtaco, most generalizations are pretty stupid... that one was fûcking rètarded. I award you no points and my god have mercy on your soul.
@big freedom, ROFL I assure you he will not.
@big freedom, my parents are x-ers and they're not horrible. I was exaggerating to be clear.
@sonofafishtaco, from everything I’ve read, boomers did everything they could to fûck up the economy. They raised us Xers with the “everyone gets a trophy” mindset. Not saying Xers are perfect but the “worst generation” (boomers) are terrible. But they were raised by “the greatest generation”... so who’s at fault?
Ever hear the axiom: hard time create strong people. Strong people create good times. Good times create weak people. Weak people create hard times.
It’s really good as a fly-wheel chart.
@big freedom, so are millennials or gen z the strong people resulting from hard times?
@sonofafishtaco, lol! What hard times? We’ve gone through an unprecedented period of comfort and leisure. We’re incredibly soft and are working as hard as we can to create bad times.
Yes we do... f*ck both generations! Gen X for life, bjtches!
That redhead was a freak!!! Everytime I watch the movie she is sooooo horny and just wants to fu*k
@seeUpee, ok pal, chill out about the HIGH SCHOOL girl.
@seeUpee, you mean Molly Ringwald, my childhood crush? Her and Cyndi Lauper are the reason I love redheads (plus, my hair was red when I was younger, and I got singled out for it).
Look up Xennials. It's basically what everyone here is saying.
My brother hates millennials. I keep reminding him that he's just inside the millennial age range. He gets sooo mad and tries to argue. It's the best.
That's a whole lot of generations.
So who hates millennials and for what reason besides hipsters?
What year does gen x end and millennials begin anyways? Im 1992 and I always felt i was gen x but i think im pretty close to being a millennial.
@BOBTHEDESTROYER, Millennials, also known as Generation Y or Gen Y, are the demographic cohort following Generation X and preceding Generation Z. Researchers and popular media typically use the early 1980s as starting birth years and the mid-1990s to early 2000s as ending birth years. Millennials are sometimes referred to as "echo boomers" due to a major surge in birth rates in the 1980s and 1990s, and because millennials are often the children of the baby boomers. The characteristics of millennials vary by region and by individual, and the group experiences a variety of social and economic conditions
i was born in 88 but ill be damned if im called a millennial...
edit: this was the first google link...validity is in question...
@BOBTHEDESTROYER, I’m 1991 and technically a millennial, though I don’t fit any of the millennial stereotypes.
@wtninja, nonconformist is a millennial stereotype... so hate to break it to you...
@phalcon , you got me
@wtninja, honestly think this more depends on where your parents fall as well, since they shape your life
@juicy steak, my parents were born in the late 50’s and definitely act like boomers sometimes.
@wtninja, I'm 1992 and can't agree more.
@Blue Elephants, I can’t really explain where I feel that I fall in the current culture. I feel a pretty strong connection to the general attitude of Gen Z, but I don’t have Gen Z friends considering they’re all kids to me. I just find their general attitude and comedy to be hilarious. I don’t really know man, I wouldn’t really consider myself to be a sociology guy, so I find it hard to place myself.
@wtninja, I’m 91 also and I always thought we were part of generation x and millennials were born after the millennium so most ppl or age don’t fit those stereotypes we had technology growing up but it wasn’t a way of life
@sgc6610, we’re lumped in with them according to sociologists though. I’m not going to pretend to understand the nuance between generations, but I’ve never felt like a millennial. I really never felt like I belonged to gen X and I definitely don’t belong to gen Z. I’m some weird combination of all of them I guess.
