Gee, Thanks Millennials. These 7 Things are Going Extinct
Thus far, in our vast American landscape, we’ve defined generations and the age they’ve lived in.
Those born in 1930 – the mid 40’s, are known as the Greatest Generation. Followed by Baby Boomers (1946 – 1964). We then get to Generation X, (or this writer’s generation) defined as those born between 1965 – 1984. Then, according to the Atlantic, there’s a slim timeline for Generation Y, before we get to the Millennials – those born in the mid 80’s to the present.
The latest power generation, the Millennials, are changing and shaping society as we know it. Here’s 7 things the latest generation do not find useful – and are in danger of extinction:
Craft beers are all the rage for today’s Millennials. Sorry, Olympia. We had a good run.
I will just have to take the word of my wife on this one, but young women are opting for the new, and more comfortable, bralettes and sports bras instead.
Landlines are quickly fading from homes. Although there are still some folks, (ahem, mom and dad) that can’t seem to cut the cord.
Millennials are watching today’s hottest shows on their devices such as tablets and phones. I’d rather watch Baywatch classics on 55″ of screaming high-quality hi-def goodness.
As it turns out, this young generation believes it’s too much work to get a bowl, pour the cereal and milk, find a spoon, and rinse out the bowl. I’ll have you know that Quisp and King Vitamin were not hassles.
Bars of Soap
According to marketing experts, 3 in 5 Millennials think bars of soap are gross. I’m actually going with you on this one.
Would you believe that only one in 5 Millennials has tried a Big Mac? Craft burgers and casual fast dining such as Panera, Qdoba, and Chipotle are soaring.
