As society changes, people learn to adapt. These behaviors were normal 20 years ago, but not worth the risk anymore.
Answering the Phone
Most people text their friends. No one answers to random numbers anymore; it’s typically a scammer.
We argued with strangers in public over parking spaces and their terrible driving. Nowadays, we never know who might be packing, and being right isn’t worth your life.
Everyone used to find the shortest layover possible so they wouldn’t have to waste time in an airport. Air travel is so messed up that booking a tight layover may cause you to miss your flight.
Layovers in General
Direct flights cost way more than layovers, but many people would rather gamble on one delayed flight than two or three. It’s worth the extra money.
Answering the Door
Remember in the 90s when the doorbell rang and your body tingled with excitement because you never know who might be on the other side? Today, we know. It’s always salespeople.
Riding a Motorcycle
Drivers don’t care that a simple collision could end in tragedy for motorcyclists. They’re all so angry on the road that cruising isn’t worth the risk.
People used to have each other’s backs. They’d step in when they saw something happening. Today, you never know how that person will react, so it’s not worth the risk to yourself.
Some folks swear off dating because it’s so hard to find a decent person to settle down with. Are people, in general, more rude, selfish, and all-around awful than they were in the past?
The cheap staple is no longer cheap and is worse in quality than ever.
Millennials and younger generations are priced out of parenthood. The outrageous cost of having kids and a society that punishes motherhood at every turn make the whole thing not worth the effort.
People Can’t Afford Kids
Even people who want children can’t afford to have them. When basic biology gets put off, you know society is on the decline. Here’s the truth about why young folks aren’t having kids: they can’t afford it.
Even if people could afford kids, the current culture surrounding bodily autonomy makes many women think twice about getting pregnant. Many states would rather see women die due to pregnancy complications than provide them with the healthcare needed to save their lives.
Many people see marriage as a financial trap. With so many marriages ending in divorce, people would rather protect their assets.
Crypto bros try to convince you to buy buy buy, but far too many people lost fortunes in the wildly unregulated market.
Dedicating Your Life To Work
Choosing work over life was never really worth it, but people today are starting to realize they’ve been had. Citizens today demand a work-life balance.
Why stay loyal to a company that views you as a cog in their vast profit wheel? Businesses don’t care about their workers, so workers don’t care about loyalty.
Why No One Wants To Work Anymore
The common boomer refrain derides younger generations for refusing awful working conditions. Are they right?
Find out why no one wants to work anymore.
