Kids these days

Apparently, millenials don’t eat cereal because they can’t be bothered to put the bowl in the dishwasher.  Seriously.  I don’t eat a lot of cereal, either, but that’s because the cereal I want to eat (Cocoa Puffs, Golden Grahams, etc) is SO bad for me.  (It might not be that bad in normal serving sizes, but I don’t eat Cocoa Puffs in normal serving sizes.)  It’s definitely not about the dishes, and that’s coming from a person who doesn’t even use a dishwasher anymore.  We figured that since we only have a set of 4 dishes (4 bowls, 4 plates, 4 spoons, etc.), we’ll just wash our dishes by hand.  If we waited to fill a dishwasher, we’d run out of dishes and it STILL wouldn’t be full.

Of course, I’m not a millenial, so that article doesn’t apply to me, but come ON!  Wash a bowl.

Have I ever sounded older and grumpier than I do right now?  Get off my lawn!

    !) It’s not only millenials who don’t rinse their cereal bowls and put them in the dishwasher. Witness your dad. I mostly gave up complaining about it years ago. (Pick your battles, right?) But even Corey called him out about it when he was staying with us a while ago.

    2) Older and grumpier: Yesterday at the pool (see my latest blog post), parents and two little children were there, only mildly annoying with some whining and competition. But then their Dad proposed (really?!): “I’m going to teach you a new game. It’s called Marco Polo.” Anything but that! I thought it was the most annoying pool game even when I was a kid! I was on the verge of gathering up my things when the youngest had a melt-down and they all left. Thank goodness! And then I remembered how nervous Nonny always was when we were at her condo pool in Naples. I thought her neighbors were grumpy old curmudgeons. And now I are one!
