People like to give Millennials (and Xennials) a lot of crap for ruining basically everything good in the world, but the truth is, we survived some serious hardships – and below are 15 examples that Generation Z will never have to experience firsthand.
Also, Millennials? I’m about to make you feel old. Sorry.

#14. Get off my lawn.
The dj really said “where my 2000s babies at” and the crowd went wild. That’s when I knew it was time for me to go home.
