by Elana

In the great war that continues to rage between Millennials and Baby Boomers, it's frequent and almost expected that Millennials are going to get the sh*t end of the stick. Despite the fact that most of them are in their 30's now, they're treated like giant cry babies, almost always by Boomers, or sometimes by other Millennials who don't realize they are actually Millennials. Wild, isn't it?
