PsiChick: Oh, look! In your world, children of my generation didn't grow up knowing that if you weren't a straight-A student your parents couldn't afford college, find out that college was a straight-A game even if professors were unwilling to give you anything higher than a C (I have had a teacher tell me that she aimed for her students getting Cs in a class of people who could barely afford college to begin with), and then have a shiatty job market, global warming, you will probably never get Social Security or retirement, you're going to spend your life in a barely-above-minimum-wage job working for 3 or 4 people, and get treated like shiat...

And everyone blames you for it and calls you an entitled snowflake!

Your world must be so great not to have that!

/Victim-blaming, isn't it lovely?


Your comment is completely incoherent and makes no sense for me to respond to. Are you complaining because many people in your generation were told to go to college and that should be their only life choice? If you are, I've seen that and I happen to think it was a terrible think that never should have happened. A society can't function on college educated people alone, a point Scott Adams famously made years ago. That being said this has nothing to do with snowflakes that were coddled so severely that they think their rights are being violated when they can't use facebook at work.

Beyond that the rest of your post in completely incomprehensible. People working multiple jobs to survive? That's been the case for countless generations, the American dream was the idea that you could raise a family on a single forty hour a week job. However the loss of that has everything to do with outsourcing and shipping jobs overseas and nothing to do with snowflakes.

Global warming? Seriously? Are you trying to relate global warming to snowflakes that have been excessively coddled by their parents? I can't even begin to imagine how I can possibly explain to you that these are completely unrelated. My post was talking about snowflakes that have been excessively coddled and the real world consequences of what happens when they join the real world and you brought up global warming......

The actions of those who do hit their stride frighten me.  They land a good job in their chosen career field, and maybe, just maybe, pay off their student loans before immediately loading to the hilt with a mortgage, car payment and who knows what else.

No down payment, no rainy day fund, no backup plan, living at your limits.  Scary stuff.  And all in the name of keeping up with the Joneses who are doing the exact same thing.

You can blame the Millennials if it makes you feel better but we weren't the ones handing out the trophies or creating special ceremonies for normal life events.

Okay, then let me spell it out for you. You're trying to 'call out' snowflakes. However, complaining because the previous generation  completely farked you over by a) destroying the economy, b) ignoring global warming, c) telling you that college was the only life goal possible even if you couldn't afford it, d) demanded trophies for everyone and ceremonies for everything, and c)  blamed you for it, especially the trophies which were FOR THE PARENTS...

I'm not going to call you a whiner if someone walks up to you and punches you in the face, because you have every right to complain. I'd appreciate you extending the same courtesies to the people you're calling 'snowflakes'. They got screwed and have every right to be pissed. And the rest of us MEs are right beside them pissed off about the same shiat.

Do yourself a favor... highlight that one in dark red with the comment of your choosing to explain why her posts show up that color. Half of what she posts doesn't make a farking bit of sense, but every once in a while, she says something amusing. The red highlight color just lets you know you may be about to go to the Twilight Zone... where global warming is the reason that much of the youth of today (not all, but many) haven't got a clue what responsibility is.

As a Millennials and hearing you people biatch about us being soft or trophy kids.  You are not realizing that when we were kids their was an economic boom in America.  GenX and the Baby Boomers where living the good life during that boom and as kids we were enjoying that boom as well but as children not adults.  Then 9/11 happened and a lot of us (me included) were dragged into a global war on terror™.  We were deployed to 3 conflict areas, Iraq Afghanistan and the horn of Africa.   Then we get the economic collapse of the US to fall on us.  We basically got the reverse of what the greatest generation went through.  Instead of a depression then war then good times we got good times war depression.   Sky high college tuition levels not ever seen before in this country.   Which is almost a catch 22 cause you gotta have a degree for a lot of jobs even if you dont graduate you still need some college education.  So yea our generation got farked over for the most part.  What you other generation dont see is we are a resilient group.  We were raised to think that we are trophy kids for the most part and we will try our damnedest to get our farking trophies back.

Dont take this post to serious and pick it apart.
