Are millennials causing society's downfall? If you asked a baby boomer, the answer is probably a resounding yes. Any non-millennial will agree that millennials are murderers. They are killing industries with their newfangled technology and ethically sourced, all-natural knives. Don't forget the fact that they're all so busy spending their money on avocado toast they can't buy anything else - much less a home.

To baby boomers, millennials are wild cards who shoulder massive student debt while ditching the traditional 9-to-5 jobs. If you've owned a house since you were the ripe old age of 27, there's no way you'd possibly relate to the fact that minimum wage hasn't increased with inflation. You're one of the oldies who could afford college on a part-time salary, so you wouldn't understand truths about millennials

Due to the differences in economy and society from the 20th to the 21st century, baby boomers and millennials have a hard time seeing eye-to-eye. In fact, there are tons of times when older generations wrongly blame millennials. However, this list outlines the times when baby boomers are right - millennials are killing certain industries and fads. Here are all the things millennials are burying out back - from fabric softener to "breastaurants." Baby boomers only: vote up the best things that millennials are killing.
