Twenty-One Reasons Why Millennials Suck

If you haven’t noticed by now, we are living in a world of Millennials. I am born into the often associated birth years of this group. While I often feel like the furthest thing from a Millennial, sometimes I feel like the definition of one. We, as Millennials, get a bad rap for everything we do, so here’s to us, fellow Millennials. Twenty-one reasons why we suck!

  1. We like to live a fast paced life. Who has time to smell the flowers? That’s why they make floral perfume.
  2. We like to think we are old-fashioned. That’s why we send out actual snail mail… on occasion.
  3. We believe everything can be turned into a get rich quick scheme, which leads people to think we don’t give our all to our tasks.
  4. Believe it or not, we actually do have a good work ethic. Our type of work just happens to be more computer based so others think we just goof off.
  5. We spend too much money on unimportant things… But doesn’t everyone?
  6. We think the world owes us something. We are young after all!
  7. We’d prefer to have someone do the easy stuff for us so we can spend our time focusing on the bigger picture.
  8. We rely far too much on our parent’s generosity.
  9. We are [sometimes] afraid to do stuff on our own. Being in a group is much easier.
  10. Other times, our ultimate lack of social skills comes out and we would rather be alone.
  11. We are better able to express ourselves on paper word documents than in person.
  12. We believe the only phone calls that should be made are to older people. God forbid a millennial call another millennial.
  13. We have the unspoken need to share everything we do. Yes, you must know that I purchased a skinny latte today. You must also know that it’s from #Starbucks.
  14. We think that there is a quick fix to everything. Often, this leads us to forget the underlying problem until it’s too late.
  15. We firmly believe in quantity over quality. More is more!
  16. We often base our values off other people. By this I mean, we cannot have the same values as that person we all hate.
  17. We easily lose interest in everything we do.
  18. Speaking of what we do, we often lack any hobbies. Unless Netflix and pizza count as hobbies.
  19. We lack respect for others. This world is about me and me alone. 
  20. We sleep too much. You mean 20 hours of sleep a day is too much?
  21. And finally… We love our lives because it takes skill to be a Millennial and we possess that skill in excess!




  1. This is so spot on. I see a lot of these things in myself and especially my friends who have a ton of unrealistic expectations about how the real world is supposed to work. I ESPECIALLY see my peers displaying #17. It's crazy how short our attention spans can be!

    1. It really is, I actually struggle with a super short attention span! However, I am trying to fix that! lol
