Special little snowflake.

Born between 1982 and 1994 this generation is something special, cause Mom and Dad and their 5th grade teacher Mrs. Winotsky told them so. Plus they have a whole shelf of participation trophies sitting at home so it has to be true.

They believe themselves to be highly intelligent, the teachers and lecturers constantly gave them "A"'s in order to keep Mom and Dad from complaining to the Dean. Unfortunately, nobody explained to them the difference between and education and grade inflation so they tend to demonstrate poor spelling and even poorer grammar.

At work, millennials believe themselves to be overachievers who just aren't understood by their loser bosses. Even Mom said so when she showed up for the interview. They are the only generation in the universe to understand the concept of work life balance and to actually want to find a fulfilling career. All those Gen X losers just don't get it what with hoping to keep their jobs and pay the bills but they are just corporate drone so who cares what they think? They should be smart like Millennials and get Mom and Dad to pay for that stuff until they can work out what they want to do with their lives and then get rich doing it.
Well, I've been here at this job for 6 months now and I've been on time mostly so I should get a raise now 'cause I've paid my dues.
Did you know we are the most technologically advanced generation, like eva? And smart too. They call us millennials cause we were born before the millennial I think.

A term used by insecure idiots to dismiss somebody aged 10-35.
Cunt: "You millennials are entitled and selfish for playing video games, because we had to play outside. No wonder you don't have a girlfriend/boyfriend."
Kid: "Whatever. Enjoy your mid-life crisis, dickweed."

-Millennial or Millennials

A media popularized term for a generation of people born in western culture who came to adulthood in the early 21st century.

Often confused for being tech savvy or capable in life skills, millennials are more often incapable with life skills that earlier generations are commonly more adept at, such as changing car tires, filling out paperwork, hooking up entertainment centers or reading usage agreements and contracts on websites and smart phone apps before agreeing to them.

Millennials are more often only functional with contemporary front end usage of modern technology while being confused and incapable with more practical applications and the service of hardware.

A small minority of Millennials with inherited wealth gave rise to the "gig" or "shared" economy bubble. Much of the perception of millennials centers around this minority among the generation who attain great wealth from crowd funding, confidence scam investments and inheritances that are soon squandered on unsustainable and impractical business models.

The Millennials are for the most part very deficient in common life skills, sustainability and practical capability.
I just saw a Millennial trying to change a tire and add oil to his car. He gave up after dumping transmission fluid in the oil intake and trying to jack his fender until it crumpled.

We're actually a pretty okay generation to be honest. We are cool headed, easy to talk to, and pretty open minded. Yes, we have our flaws. Sure, we may not be QUITE as outdoorsy as the baby boomers were growing up, but I know for fact that we, along with Gen X, were a hell of a lot LESS ridiculously rebellious than the baby boomers were.

They complain that we're not even as politically engaged as we should be... unless, of course, we unquestioningly agree with all their politics. And yet we get shit for that as well. Too liberal, yet not political enough? Dafuq lol? Not to mention that politics in general is a very trashy, childish field designed for people who couldn't make something productive out of their lives.

That definition by Mr. SnowmanPants is utter bull. We lack common life skills and hardware? Then PLEASE tell me why older generations like Boomers keep bitching about the top engineering and tech companies like Google hiring us in droves and pushing out baby boomers?

And most importantly, why do we constantly need to even be labeled this much in the first place?
Mark Zuckerburg anyone? Millennial, creator and engineer of Facebook, one of the greatest communication networks of today? And contrary to popular beliefs, no we do not just live in our parents house forever. We just stay there until we're financially independent, which is hard to be in this economy (thanks Baby Boomers).

No, millennials are not perfect. But we certainly don't deserve the ten kinds of shit that Baby Boomers LOVE to talk about us without even stopping to take a very good critical look at themselves. It's kind of amazing how jackassed they can be when you think about it :)

Pretty much the most spoiled generation in american history. Thinks that the rest of the world is going to by in on their progressive and socialistic viewpoint. Not really their fault since they haven't known hard political times yet, and have been brainwashed by the liberal left media.
Boomer: We've gotta vote for Rubio this election! He'll save America.

Millennials: I'm offended , why do we "have" to vote for him? Are you forcing me? I'm a democrat...
Boomer: ...your naivety is amusing, and frightening.
