Canceling with so little notice is just bullshit. Sandy happened several weeks ago...and that decision should have been made soon after it passed...or at least some warning of the possibility be given. Sorry to hear. How much support does this decision have from her seniors?
As far as a your comment on millennials...we are the sorriest fucking generation to come out of America that I can think of. I'm '85, and I agree wholeheartedly with the above sentiments. I would love to say, speaking from the inside, that this lady is not representative of us. But she is. She absa-fucking-lutely is.
My biggest pet peeve with us is how we are dealing with our student loan debts. Yes, the loan system is fucked...but we signed a contract...a contract which fucked us...but a contract nonetheless. I have to read on Facebook about various friends "occupying" things against their loans. I paid mine off, 60k+, in 3 years. I know we all can't do that...I don't expect us to. But this whole "blame someone else" is typical of our sense of entitlement and our inability to understand what real work entails. Work is a part of life, not something that happens outside of it. And the younger you are, the more it should be part of your life. If you are under 30, it should damn well near dominate your life. The older you get, the less you should have to work (as you have a family and actually have earned that sense of entitlement). That just makes sense to me. People in their twenties viewing that period of their lives as an extension of college is .
Fuck I hate millennials. And sorry to rant in your thread. And sorry about your Thanksgiving. I hope something good comes out of all of it.
You should be thankful that you're not in China. Here it's 1000 times worse, although here it's with credit card debt, and not student loans. People here have no fiscal control at all. Having a total debt (stemming from over-consumption, not buying property etc) equaling several YEARS worth of salary isn't that uncommon. Now, given the price vs salary ratio, this is actually pretty easy to achieve, but still. People here have NO idea what fiscal responsibility means(or any kind of responsibility for that matter).
