People often say that Millennials are lazy, unfocused, and entitled. As near as I can tell, the primary difference between Millennials and Generation X is that we Gen-Xers had the good taste to wear flannel and listen to Pearl Jam while our parents told us that we were lazy, unfocused, and entitled. We were also a clear improvement over the Baby Boomers, who wore bell bottoms and listened to Country Joe and the Fish while their parents told them that they were lazy, unfocused, and entitled.
Of course, the Baby Boomers’ parents were the Greatest Generation, many of whom spent their twenties fighting Nazis. But I’m pretty sure that many of those Nazis told them that they were lazy, unfocused, and entitled.
(NOTE: I write these commentaries several days in advance. In the time between when I wrote this and when it published, John Scalzi published some similar sentiments about millennials on his blog. This is a complete coincidence, and we don't say the exact same things, but I thought the similarity was striking enough to mention.)
