Why are Boomers & Gen X’ers so obsessed with writing think pieces about millennials?

Too much free time maybe? Not enough interesting ideas? Terrified of the cold hard inevitability of death so you’re focusing on the future so intently that you’ll study anything you have available, even if it’s an insignificant habit?

Maybe we have all these incredible tools and research options, but the kind of things you really WANT to use them on are roadblocked so you waste your time studying every tiny thing we do as if it’s insanely fascinating?

“Why don’t millennials eat cereal?”

Are you kidding me? These are the kind of earth shattering revelations you’re looking into? These are the habits of my generation you’re worried about? These are the things that are keeping you up at night?

I don’t know- maybe I’m exactly like everyone in my generation, maybe I’m completely different. Maybe I’m uselessly narcissistic, or maybe I’m outwardly focused. Maybe I eat cereal, maybe I don’t! But maybe [most likely]: I’m an amalgamation of fitting the stereotypes that go with my age-group, and some things that don’t.

Either way, don’t you have better things to do?
