They like brands with synergy. USPS has no synergy.

I hardly ever use stamps anymore. I pay all of my bills online. I think I purchased 1 stamp in 2018 - can't remember why. That said, I know where to buy a stamp if I need one.

My girlfriend and I have both discussed Millennials from time to time and we've concluded it's not so much that they're lazy, but they lack solid problem solving skills. In this article, for instance, it's not that they don't want to vote (which is great), but they're not voting because they don't know where to find a stamp - so then they don't vote. They're willing to do the work, but struggle to navigate obstacles and again - I don't think it is about being lazy - I think it's about honestly not seeing how to find an answer.

We have a book of stamps pinned to a corkboard in our kitchen. It tends to last over a year. I have to mail off a life insurance premium cheque a couple times a year, but that's the only set mailing I do.

My experience with university-aged students has been that they're very hard-working and earnest, but less critical/skeptical. There's far more of a "why can't we all just get along" than a demand to understand why we don't. That's not necessarily a criticism, either. That more romantic perspective might be what is required to actually put aside endless criticism and get to work. But, if so, it probably means papering over tough questions and letting them fester. On the whole, I'm more impressed with Millennials than my own generation. Our skepticism and cynicism has mostly ended up supporting the dumb hardened divisions of Boomers rather than offering critical solutions. I'm not really capable of a more optimistic, romantic perspective to social problems, but I'm more than willing to concede the ground to a generation that is.

I always have stamps on me because I am a firm believer in the handwritten thank you note.

I don't think millenials are to blame for anything. Boomers are the root of every problem in our society. And they are usually the loudest critics of millenials...the very millenials they raised.

You mean the parents who insisted their kid get a trophy for showing up and now complain that Millennials expect to be praised for showing up?

I'm not sure it's that easy, however. I was raised by Boomers - but being born in January 1977 - I'm not a Millennial. I'm late period Gen-X or whatever they label us these days and I feel like I have more in common with my Boomer parents than I do with the generations that have come after more (good and bad). My dad was born in 1950 and my mom was born in 1953 - and they have both been hard workers, good problem solvers, and so on. I feel like they took the "hard working" reputation of their parent's generation and infused it with more progressive thinking - which is what they passed on to me and my sisters. My parents grew up during the "innocent" years of the 1950's and came of age in the 1960's before starting a family in the 1970's (my youngest sister was born in 1980).

I wonder if it has something to do with where one's parents fall on the Boomer spectrum? Did late period Boomers give us the Millennials?

Obviously I was making a generalization. It's definitely not that easy, for sure.
