I am a millennial and I can’t stand millennials. Don’t get me wrong, not all millennials are the same but a majority that I come across are little entitled brats.
I just saw a mom and her son (probably in his mid 20’s) eating at Einstein Bagels and he is telling her about the recent Kim Kardashian scandal. She is listening intently and commenting when appropriate. She seems very patient.
Side note: I love to people watch so I’m staring them down like a piece of cheesecake.
Anyway, after he finishes his rant about the latest celebrity gossip, she asks when they get home, if he could do his laundry and clean the bathroom. He flat out says “no, that’s your job.” She doesn’t say anything but an intense stare down occurs. They don’t say anything for a few minutes and he says, “by the way, we need groceries at the house.” She goes, “I’ve already been to the store so if you need something else, you can go.” He just looks at her and says, “I’m not spending my money on groceries.”
At this point, I’m staring at him with my mouth open. If I would have talked to my mom like that, I wouldn’t have been able to sit for a week.
This little turd is still talking back to her and I’ve just had enough…I lean over and say to the mom “Please accept my apology for what I’m about to say to your son.” To the son “listen here you little shit, how about you quit being disrespectful to your mom and get off your lazy ass and contribute. You are about 25, right? Yea, well she has every right to legally kick your butt out of her house but for whatever reason, she hasn’t, so show some freaking respect.” He just looks at me dumbfounded. He gets up to leave, and the mom grabs my arm and says “Thank you. Seriously.”
I’m not usually a confrontational person but this dummy was just straight rude and I couldn’t take it. It was disgusting.
I’ve been around other situations similar to these…and it makes my stomach turn. My mom would have slapped me in the mouth or better yet, kicked my ass in front of all the people in the coffee shop.
Although, I am millennial, I was taught to be more considerate and not to think the world owed me anything. I’m trying to create a path for myself, which yes, has caused me to struggle but it’s my struggle and no one else’s.
Sorry, Rant OVER!
