Millennials can't cook. You could likely get $40 for one of those in NYC or LA/SF

I am a millennial and I can cook  Eyeroll

Yeah, i remember. But, you're far from the norm. You're also patient enough to read and write beyond one sentence. You, other than your age, hardly qualify as A Millennial.

The Millennials (age) who've worked for me, can cook, use hand tools, do math beyond high school geometry and, most don't waste their money on the $8-16 a cup for coffee at the corner Millennial hangout.

I just brought it up as I dislike generalizations.

Such as: Boomers love to sell out their children's future Jptdknpa

But yes, I refuse to waste my money on this shit.
You know how easy it is to make avacado toast?! Easier than making scrambled eggs!

I'm happy I don't drink coffee, nor find any reason to hang out in a hipster spot with people who complain about life.

$100 Avocado Toast

With Millennials obsessed with photographing and posting all they eat to social media, they're going broke keeping up with the "My Avocado Toast is better than yours" trend.


The Cost of Avocado Toast, Explained by a Restaurateur

It’s not really about the avocados
by Ellen Fort@ellenfork May 23, 2017, 10:53am PDT


Over the past few years, avocado toast has gained a high profile, from an avocado-only restaurant in New York to the most recently horrifying “avolatte” phenomenon. It’s why Millennials can’t buy homes. It’s the death of San Francisco food culture. It’s the devil on toast. Somewhere along the way, the buttery fruit that is so deliciously slathered on toast across America, got a real bad rap for being trendy, and expensive.

But really, it’s not about the avocados.

The bourgeois treat is, however, a great example of the hidden costs of menu items, and the cost of running a business with super-slim margins (e.g. a restaurant). The Bay Area is no stranger to fancy toast, avocados or not. But prices in restaurants are rising nationwide, particularly in cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington, DC, and New York City. It’s a tricky combination of the cost of living, foreign policy, trade policy, labor shortages, and even more factors beyond the control of restaurant operators.

This was a post on another thread. I waited for it to leave the front page before starting this thread.

Living beyond your means is the motto of most Millennial's and you see it broadcast all the time on TV ads and such, of course they use different verbiage but it has that meaning.

It's all about posting "lifestyle" photos on social media.

This charter jet interior, is rentable by the hour for Millennial Social Media photos, when it not in the air.

For some reason that brought to mine the plywood cutouts, of various characters, at the state fair where you could place your head and have your picture taken. Chuckle
