And, as it turns out, millennials are absolutely "terrified" of doorbells, as previously reported on by The Wall Street Journal. Via wsj.com So we wanted to find some of the reasons for this curious phenomenon. Cliff Jerrison @pervocracy @youngandjoven Ringing a doorbell is like a voice call at this point; it's either an elderly relative or some kind of scam. 08:33 PM - 03 Jun 2019 Reply Retweet Favorite Like people assuming that when the doorbell rings, it's either an "elderly relative" or some kind of scam. Or when you're young and home alone and instructed not to open the door to strangers. Via Twitter: @garyfromteenmom And hey, most of us don't like people showing up unannounced, right? Ivny @Tellybutt @youngandjoven If you're ringing my doorbell it means idk you and you came unannounced and thus gives me no obligation to open my door 11:01 PM - 03 Jun 2019 Reply Retweet Favorite Shamrocks&Shenanigan @shamrocknshen @youngandjoven I’m old. Annoyed when door bell is rang only because I have two boxers. We have a sign outside to text. Of course ups/usps/fedex delivery knows to ring. I have set on doordash & Postmates to text when arrived. I don’t think my doorbell minds me being informed. 02:56 PM - 04 Jun 2019 Reply Retweet Favorite Because doorbells = anxiety. Duh! stella donnelly stan @youngandjoven @urfeverdream TRUE, it's an anxiety button for me 03:23 AM - 03 Jun 2019 Reply Retweet Favorite There's also the whole thing with nobody having them anymore. crow q2 @HoshiNoTeribur i dont know a single person that has a doorbell https://t.co/LVphnGPkIm 01:39 PM - 04 Jun 2019 Reply Retweet Favorite And can we talk about how doorbells make nine dogs out of 10 bark like crazy? Haley Moran @hmoran13 Netflix needs an option to turn off doorbell and knocking sounds so my dog does lose his shit every time 🙃 04:55 PM - 04 Jun 2019 Reply Retweet Favorite With moms like this, who needs a doorbell? Mr Mosnar @Mr_Mosnar @youngandjoven True story! Although I'm no millennial, rather than ring a doorbell I send texts like this 👇🏾. Moms was watching my dog a few weeks ago. When I went to pick him up I sent this as I stood at the door... 04:03 PM - 04 Jun 2019 Reply Retweet Favorite And you'll wake the baby, dammit! Clare Brock @Clare_Brock As a parent, this is my favorite millennial habit ever. No doorbell ringing to set off the dog or wake the baby. I hope we do kill the doorbell. Good damn riddance. https://t.co/VcuZidyoCl 02:53 PM - 04 Jun 2019 Reply Retweet Favorite Dr James Shea @englishspecial I text 'here'. My millennial son rings my own doorbell when he visits.
