35 Things Millennials Wish The Older Generation Would Realize 

You might want to send these facts from Ask Reddit to your parents and grandparents.

24. When people who grew into adulthood in the 2000s and 2010s ignore your economic/career advice, it’s not because we’re snotty or ungrateful or don’t value your opinion. It’s because the economy is so different that advice which may have been good in the 50s-80s is not likely to still be good.

25.

(Drowning in debt, please send help.)

Whoever the old fucks are who decided to get rich off of the education of future generations can burn in hell for eternity.
