Not so funny vid.  I was an employer for almost 40 years and have done a lot of interviews.  In fairness this one is a spoof. 

Hmm...it's an exaggerated caricature but that seems to be how many previous generations see millennials -- a cellphone attached, self absorbed, entitled and basically idiotic generation. ::)

I'm just a student of the game that they taught me.

Um, you mean, um, they're not!?

Ok, not the millennials, entirely, maybe the next generation, oh, 95% ? What you said about the effects of excessive screentime is worrying. Thpugh we previously worried about excessive TV, then excessive gaming, neither of those had the social impact of (anti)social media and "fake news"' - if only because there was not the "any time, anywhere, 24/'7-global" pervasive access currently available in our povkets or bags. It takes a degree of msturity to ignore such things, let's hope the coming generations have a chance to achieve that, the instability of puberty is bad enough without such influences!

To be fair, the Boomer generation pretty much screwed the Millennials over but good.  Sure, some of us were out on the streets protesting and trying to better the world but way too many of us where just grubbing for money, using up everything other generations had built up and not replacing it, as if it would all re-generate magically.
