Things That Young Adults Think Their Parents’ Generation Got Right
Boomers take a lot of ribbing from young people for the uncool things they do . . . including silly stuff like the thumbs-up emoji, using ellipses in texts, and watching a ton of cable news.
But now young adults are talking about things that their parents’ generation got RIGHT. And the highlights include:
The neighborhood watch . . . not sharing EVERYTHING about their lives, like people do on social media now . . . fixing things, as opposed to just throwing stuff away and buying new stuff . . .
Affordable housing (although it’s debatable whose fault that is) . . . hospitality to total strangers . . . helping neighbors, and “community” in general . . .
Super simple hiring, where you could just walk into a place and ask for a job . . . having REAL art and not mass-produced décor . . . and owning physical copies of music and movies, rather than digital everything.
