TFA, first sentence: When 22-year-old rapper Post Malone was asked earlier this month why he'd gotten the words "Always Tired" tattooed in elaborate script on his face,

Maybe Millennials are tired of people thinking they're still 22? Millennials are 25-40 now.

Nonsense. "Millennial" means "a person who is some amount of years younger than me who in my mind regularly engages in behavior or holds beliefs that I find unacceptable or inappropriate except as a means for assuring myself that I'm a member of one of the last generations to possess any degree of common sense, which is for me one of the only sources of pride I have in life." See also, "hipster."

The word millennial has all lost all meaning at this point.

Is it really that difficult to research this and be able to differentiate between Millenials and Gen Z before writing a blog post?

Whenever I see Post Malone, I'm reminded of the episode of "Atlanta" where they end up in a frathouse at Georgia Southern.

The fratboy tells Paperboi that him and Post Malone are his favorite rappers and Brian Tyree Henry is such a good actor that you can see the pain in his face to be compared to Post Malone.

Hmm...Why are Millennials always tired? Well, in my case at least, maybe it was living through the greatest recession since the great depression that dumped my ass in the unemployment line that was then followed up by some orange lunatic moron putting tariffs on soy beans destroying the storage side of the farming industry I worked in at the time only to then be tossed on my ass again because of COVID shutting down ALL THE FARKING GYMS IN THE FARKING COUNTRY SO I'VE SPENT MY ENTIRE ADULT LIFE NOW UNABLE TO HOLD A SINGLE FARKING JOB FOR MORE THAN 5 FARKING YEARS BECAUSE OF SOME MAJOR FARK UP THAT COULD HAVE BEEN PREVENTED.

But hey, I get to look forward to whatever climate change is going to do over the next 40-50 years of my life.

Really liking gen z for the most part. Hoping that my generation will be the first to start contributing to non-geriatric rule and introducing new ideas before they're past retirement age and gen z can then roll with that, build on it.

I wish Hipster was that. Sadly Hipster is a person (no age level required) that does activities and/or sells products that are considered "quirky" or outrageously unusual for the purposes of "Look at me!" attention grabbing (e.g. Writing your "magnum opus" on a mechanical typewriter at the outdoor table of the local "artisan" coffee house). Usually the products they sell are just things that are "repurposed" (aka, found, purchased or stolen) from other people, cultures, and/or subcultures and sold at a much higher than reasonable markup with  mostly unnecessary marketing terms (such as "small batch", "gluten free", "organic", and the aforementioned "artisan". As a group, "Trust Fund Hipsters" are people who rely on their parents' wealth to do things like gentrify a poor neighborhood while pretending to be Progressive and/or "Woke", but really show their true colors when selling-out their self-described values for cash (like Kyrsten Sinema) by kicking out the people they claim to support from the neighborhood they now inhabit.

/For me I should be glad that Hipsters have somehow kept my favorite hobby, since I was a child of pinball playing alive
//Though I am also mad that they have made the hobby unaffordable (some new machines are going as high as $20,000 for the "super-premium" price, and the entry level is going up from $6,500.00) in the event I wanted to buy my own pinball machine(s), instead of driving out of my area to find various pinball arcades and other venues that have pinball machines who can afford those crazy prices

Congratulations. You've managed to mix up the words "tired" and "resting." That's not easy to do! There's privilege in getting to rest a lot. There's no privilege in being tired.

Does it have anything to do with living in a world that feels increasingly dominated by the sh*ttiest, stupidest, worst people any of us have ever imagined?

Are they maybe tired of negotiating every day through a minefield of bullsh*t and intentionally awful behavior from a group of people who seem to have nothing but time on their hands to engage in their never-ending crusade to make everything worse at all times?

Bugerz: *initial rant*


Then my parents are always asking "Why don't you 3 kids ever have money" and the answer that "Well the monthly 15 minute psych visit that costs $350 to get your next 30 days of pills that cost $120/mo and the $80/hr therapist for a minimum of 8 hours a month that insurance refuses to cover because it's 'above set price range' that they are allowed to set is eating what farking money should be left over." is apparently not an excuse. Also, because a psych should apparently only cost $200/15m visit, pills should only cost $30/mo, and therapists should only cost $55/hr that the insurance company gets to set. THE FARKING MONEY I SPEND DOESN'T GO TOWARDS MY INSURANCE DEDUCTIBLE OF $8500 A FARKING YEAR EITHER!

I ALSO WANT TO BEAT MY FARKING COWORKER SENSELESS WHO ONLY SEEMS TO UNDERSTAND MAXIMUM LEVEL POUNDING IS THE ONLY FARKING WAY TO USE A KEYBOARD! IT'S 10 HOURS A DAY OF THIS SHIAT AND MOVING DESKS AWAY FROM THIS FARKING MADNESS ISN'T POSSIBLE BECAUSE WE STICK ALL YOU DRAFTERS TOGETHER SHIAT IS THE EXCUSE MANAGEMENT FARKING GIVES IS BULLSHIAT! Oh yea, HE'S ALSO VOCAL ENOUGH ABOUT HOW MUCH HE HATES HIS JOB I CAN HEAR HIM WHEN I'M VISITING THE FARKING ENGINEERS 40 FEET AWAY!

If you spent the last decade waiting for your dream job that's on you. My adult life started off with the tech crash and cruised right on into the great recession. Rather than settle for working menial jobs and complaining I just changed careers. There are lots of good paying jobs out there if you're willing to take a chance.

Well now, people like Paul Ryan, Madison Cawthorn and the rest prove that the 'I've got mine, fark you' mindset knows no generational bounds. It's just that saying 'Ok, asshole who has no concept of reality or peoples struggles but is more than willing to say how it's all their fault and you would have done everything perfect' doesn't roll off the tongue as well as 'Ok, Boomer.'

2021-11-30 2:10:15 PM  
I'm tired because I spend 9 hours at work. I'm not allowed to skip my lunch break and leave at 4 instead of 5. Some days it's 10 or 11 hours.

I'm tired because my job can be done remotely instead of spending 2 hours a day commuting.

I'm tired because more than 50 percent of my income goes to keeping a roof over my head.

I'm tired because of stagnant wages and having to jump ship to a new company every few years just to keep up with inflation.

I'm tired because two weeks off a year isn't enough to recharge my batteries (mental and physical) when I use that time for appointments for the kiddos.

I'm sure there are plenty more reasons that folks can add.
