Boomer Sales Manager Meets Millennial Sales Rep

Found this and just had to share.

So true. I've seen it first hand while walking through our engineering and sales departments. Everyone has ear buds and texting on their phones. When I ask someone a question they first take out their ear buds and still text while I'm asking my question. They answer only when they come to the end of what they are texting. Makes being a manager very frustrating.

Can't wait for the engineering department to begin using their new VR headsets the company is buying for them. They'll never see or hear what is happening around them. I heard they will be able to draw plans simply by using drawing in air.

Anonymous, how did Boomers ruin your chances to own a home? From what I've observed most Millennials that complain about the "older generation" are not willing to put in the hard work and dedication it takes to buy a house like their parents did. A Boomer's first house usually required 20% down which they saved years to get and many still live in those homes with their Millennial children just waiting for them to die so they can get a house for free. Ruined? I don't think so.

Fed Up, look at the cost of things then and now: https://www.census.gov/construction/nrs/pdf/uspricemon.pdf
Sure you have to take into account inflation, but 20% down back then doesn't come close to even 10% down now.

Regarding your comment about millennials still living with their parents "waiting for them to die so they can get a house for free", well, this could be one of two things, 1) the parents are enabling and didn't teach their children to be independent, or 2) the parents might actually appreciate their children sticking around to help them out. Who knows, there's all kinds of walks of life, and I don't like to generalize. But I think you owe Anonymous $2.

Gary, funny cartoon, but if that's about a change order, then I'm sure the sales manager will be happy it's in writing!
