Millennial 1st day as a customer service representative dressed in jeans with ripped out knees and holes exposing the back of the thighs(purchased this way), sporting a conservative, long sleeved collared blouse.

Baby Boomer: I appreciate your sense of style; however, I thought during your job interview we went over the bank's business professional dress code?

Millennial: Oh, yes we did.

Baby Boomer: Were there areas of the dress code that you didn't understand?

Millennial: No, I thought it sounded nice, but my mood today was business comfortable, that's why my shirt doesn't match my pants. If you want, I can go home on my lunch break and change my shirt.

Baby Boomer - just go on home and don't bother returning until the point in time you can adhere to our dress code.

Millennial: Does that mean I'm being promoted and I get a raise?

You all realize that the millenials are actually on the verge of pushing 40 now, right?

The Z's are now exiting college and entering the workforce and are a little more laid back than we are used to or comfortable with.

I wonder if there's ever been an older generation look upon the younger generation fondly. Did the greatest generation have such disdain for the baby boomers? Spoken as a millennial who is DEFINITELY pushing 40 as JJ so kindly pointed out. wink

I'm pretty sure it is generation X who are pushing 40. I guess there are probably some sources that say otherwise but I grew up in as generation x and I sure as HECK do not want to be considered a millennial.

The term millennial gets a bad rap. I'm considered a millennial and far from the stereotype.

Every generation has their high performers and non performers it's just that the non performers of the millennial generation have a microphone by way of social media.

Found another one that defines Millennials as 80-94.

I'm a Gen X raising two Gen Zs. Both of my Gen Zs are hardworkers. However, I'm not too impressed with most of their classmates, who want mom/dad to buy them everything and throw a tantrum when they don't get it.

here is a list of the generations: http://socialmarketing.org/archives/generations-xy-z-and-the-others/

I have two sons -- one GenX (1977) and one Millennial (1983) and the Gen X is always complaining about millennials, his brother and his staff. It all sounds vaguely familiar -- my baby-boomer self complaining about gen x at work.

As for the greatest generation complaining about the baby boomers, we were long haired lazy hippie stoners but we were much louder then they were. "Don't trust anyone over 30" (except today I'm 66).

I'm changing the year I was born. Since people are allowed to change gender I should at least be allowed that privilege.

Late birth year in the Baby Boomer category with one millennial and one I guess gen Z (1996), and I agree all generations look at the next and find issues. I was way to young to ever be a hippie but my brother was one and I remember my father having all kinds of issues with it.

There will always be the generational gap no matter what.

Just remember, these folks will be the ones taking care of you in the nursing home. smile

Being born in the late 70's or early 80's makes you a Xennial. Xennials grew up as (analog) Xer's but came of age as a (digital) Millennial. Ask me how I know. wink

The brain doesn't finish developing until the age of 25. Gen Z aren't idiots, they're kids. I would certainly have a problem with 20 year old me. That guy was an idiot.

"Generation Z , born from mid-1990 on, are next in line for a kicking. After them are Generation Alpha, the first group of millennials' children, born from about 2011 until 2025. Henry Rose Lee, the intergenerational speaker and author, describes them as “millennials on steroids”."

The Gen Z co-workers just look at me like I'm an alien when I talk about anything that took place prior to 2000...then I realize I'm old enough to be their parent...then I go into a swearing fit...it wasn't that long ago all my co-workers were old enough to be my parent...:(
