 I wonder if one of the causes of animosity
 towards "entitled millennials" is that many millennials
 are poor people who look rich. Theres this growing
 class of people who wear nice clothes, have fancy new
 electronic gadgets, go out to eat nice food... and will
 never own a home or have a retirement fund or put a
 child through college.
 It's so easy to say "if you cut down on the avocado toast
 maybe you could save up", and so hard to accept that
 a house these days is fifty thousand avocado toasts,
 and thats why so many of us have just given up. We
 don't treat ourselves because we think the world will
 take care of us when we get older, we treat ourselves
 because we know it won't. Might as well feel and look
 good on the way down

 think you're absolutely right. And what compounds
 this image is the fact that fancy new gadgets and nice
 looking clothes and elevated toast ARE all relatively
 cheap compared to how they look. The cost of things

 Yep. There's an aspect of frugality to turning your
 buying choices to what gets you the most bang for your
 buck, and now that you can have sushi for the price of
 McDonald's, buy a suit from the thrift store and have
 it tailored to you for less than the price of a new pain
 of jeans, and find smartphones for under a hundred
 dollars or even free with data plan, that is the sort of

 also like, half of the stuff is not only nolonger a luxery
 but its an actual necessity, if you dont have a computer
 it just became so much harder to apply for jobs, if you
 dont have a phone how are they going to contact you for
 the interview?
