Millennials Stand UP!

I’m getting so fucking burnt out when it comes to listening to the older generations berate and decry the Millennials of the world.I can’t be the only one who is sick and tired of our generation being associated with so many negative tropes and attributes, right?  As one of the few Millennials in a mostly conservative office that trends a bit older, I often hear all sorts of negative stereotypes being tied to my generation.
