Bunch of whiners I think. Just the other day I'm afraid I made my opinion known to someone who wanted to write about the bunch like they were some miraculous market segment.

No bashing ... no putting people in buckets.  There is a condition present in many people of certain generations.  I see it and much of it I do not like. However, they are not all of that condition.

Yes, I'm stuck in the middle with you,
And I'm wondering what it is I should do
It's so hard to keep this smile from my face,
Losing control, and I'm all over the place

Annette actually no I don't bash that group or any other 'group or category' of folks.  In a meeting I hosted this morning a gal did want to bash them but I brought it back around to reaching them with your core principles and values. It was an interesting discussion with some new insights provided by all on how to approach all kinds of folks - and stop the bashing of any group.

No Millienial bashing here - I have 5 children who were born in what are considered to be the Millenial years. I love working with Millenials the same as I do enjoy working with people of all ages. Each person is an individual and I'd rather take the time to listen to them and find out what's important to them as an individual.

When you put people into groups it has one purpose, to allow for the discrimination of that group.  Therefore I move that we abolish the age related groupings.
