Darby requested via email a free five-night stay for her and her boyfriend at a hotel in Ireland. Instead of paying the hotel, she would give the business "exposure" - the hotel owner was certainly having none of that and replied to her with a snarky email, which he has since published online. He even went on to ban all social media influencers from his places of business.
Do you think the hotel owner's response was fair or did it go too far? Let us know in the comments!
It's no secret that Millennials love La Croix. According to a trusted source, they consume anywhere between two and 12 cans of it per day on average, so it's certainly a dietary staple. If you can't get your hands on a can of that sweet, sweet nectar right now, then just feast your eyes on these memes to fill the void in your heart.
'People of New York' has become a worldwide sensation. Everybody is talking about these photo stories.
But the real Facebook photo project that totally nails 20-somethings in is 'Millennials of New York.'
From man buns to Instagram and #squadgoals—this page just gets Millennials.
Here's what we can learn about Millennials from this page...
It's a tradition that the older generations have to hate on the younger generations for absolutely any reason they can think of. Doesn't matter what for, because it was just "better back in the day," in their logic.
Self-described "recovering academic" Jenny Bann pulled up some hilariously enlightening historical records of the behavioral problems exhibited by 18th century male students in Scotland.
Let's just say they're...less than wholesome and make Millennials look angelic in comparison.
The internet loves a good little Millennials vs Baby Boomers online battle. This Baby Boomer was in for a rude awakening in the comments section after their post about millennial entitlement and free education vs. affordable education. Sometimes the best way to address bullish ignorance is to break out the facts. Their point was very well put, and it doesn't look like angry baby boomer had anything else to say about the matter.
If you experienced childhood somewhere around the turn of the century, then quite a few of of these pictures might hit you right in the memory nads. Remember back when you had to drive to a store to rent videos? Wild. If you want more '90s nostalgia, then check these out.
If we could just make a list of all the things millennials have done to make the world a worst place:
Is there a more dangerous demographic?
According to The Wall Street Journal, millennials aren’t buying fabric softener, which is a problem for sensitive skin and Proctor and Gamble stockholders every where. Luckily, millennials also invented the rebranding, so that should quell the malicious demographics’ bloodlust.
Now, there are several explanations for why millennials aren’t buying fabric softener. For instance, some say that they don’t know what fabric softener is for, leading to a 15% drop in sales between 2007 and 2015. Others say millennials are more “eco conscious” and want fewer chemicals in the house. Even fewer say that millennials just follow the wash instructions on their clothes, which say nothing about fabric softener.
Things just keep getting worse, as the piece points out, millennials are not only reading, but also following direction and saving a few bucks.
Frankly, we’ve all had enough of millennials and their thrifty ways. Excuse me while I raise my fist to the sky and shake!
Some on the internet are actually accusing fabric softener of not actually doing something, explaining for the decline in sales. As if these selfish, me-me-me-me, whiny millennials actually need their products to do something.
You know, when the baby boomers were kicking, they didn’t need a product to do anything. A pet rock was all they needed to have a good time.
Everyone agrees: The most important part of the wedding is the hashtag.
You could have the right dress, cake, and DJ, but if your hashtag fails to inspire and delight your guests, guess what, no one had a good time. The hashtag lives on long after the music ends and leaves an indelible print on your pictures. It’s the first thing that guests ask for and the last thing they forget.
So why would you leave the hashtag up to the amateurs?
Gunning for the title of most millennial job of 2016, Marielle Wakim, a Los Angeles-based magazine editor, is offering personalized wedding for a low, low price. “Happily Ever #Hashtagged,” Wakim’s business offers hashtags, charging $40 for one and $115 for three options. She’s also willing to tag bachelor and bachelorette parties.
Recently, Wakim’s wedding hashtags were featured on Good Morning America, where John Legend didn’t seem too impressed by them. Although, we’re in agreement, the one she wrote for George and Amal Clooney, “AmalYourGeorge,” was pretty solid.
For more on Wakim, check out her interview in Mashable or simply call her because you don’t want your special day to be ruined, do you?

Growing up can be tough, what with knowing when to brush your teeth and feeding yourself and, ugh, putting pants on. The worst.
Thankfully, someone has set out to confirm all the worst stereotypes about millennials and teach them how to break them. Enroll now in, *sigh* Adulting School. With classes in finance, health, relationships, communication, and handiwork, The Adulting School is here to teach you how to “Adult.”
Founded by psychotherapist Rachel Weinstein and former public school teacher Katie Brunelle and based out of Portland, Maine, The Adulting School offers a variety of seminars and classes on how to be a big person who can take care of themself. You can even take an Adulting IQ exam to find out how adult you are. Note: The exam does not ask the most common adult questions, such as "Who am I?" and "What am I doing with my life?"
Their website promises:

In addition to demanding their participation awards, only being concerned with their Twitters, and never fighting in World War II, millenials have topped the list of “Worst Houseguests,” according to a study by HomeAdvisor, making them the worst, officially.
Looking at the biggest houseguest annoyances and habits among 2,000 people in the U.S., the study found that among millennials, Generation Xers, and baby boomers, millennials exhibit the worst behavior. I didn’t think that something that was already the worst could get any worse, but here we are.
According to Apartment Therapy: “When it came to copping to their own bad behaviors, millennials admitted to the most offenses of all three generations—16 out of the 27 on the list, as compared to 9 for Gen Xers and only one for baby boomers (cleaning without asking first). Among the list of offenses millennial respondents admitted to? Showing up early, not treating the host to a meal, eating too much food, not offering to help with cooking or chores, making too much noise, and never making their bed.”
Check out the list of bad habits millennials have below and the full study here. I’m sure you’ll agree that no matter how bad you thought millennials were, they’ll inevitably find something to make the that much worse. Ugh. It’s, like, give it a rest with being the worst already.
