Millennials Are Not Very Handy
Mike Rowe would not approve.
How many millennials (people under 35) does it take to change a light bulb? Thankfully, only one, usually, because according to a new survey, the next seven wouldn't know how.
The majority of us have to be more competent than this, right? I mean, I'm not, but I assume most are. I definitely at least know how to change a light bulb.
Not surprisingly, the cause of this lack of handyman skills is pinpointed to too much time spent focusing on technology. Those skills are necessary, but there remains an importance in skilled labor, too.
The actual millennials surveyed simply blamed their folks for not passing down the knowledge to them. Yet, guess who they are most likely to turn to when needing these tasks done? Yep, the parents.
Not being good at hanging wallpaper, which half of those surveyed also said they weren't, is one thing. Who even uses wallpaper anymore? But changing a lightbulb? Come on. I'm no Bob Vila, but even I can do that.
