    14. Saying the most cringey phrase known to man, aka "I did a thing."

    millennials always say i did a thing why do they always say that

    15. Always bringing up "hobbies."

    okay i’ll bite, what are hobbies and why are millennials always asking about them

    16. Using the crying laughing emoji even though it hasn't been cool for years now.

    millennials always use “😂” unironically like what is so funny

    17. Letting companies take advantage of them.

    20. And struggling to achieve financial stability.

    millennials always wanna talk about the scholastic book fair and the aesthetic of taco bell from the 90s but never their credit score
