A recent study found that 40% of millennials prefer not eating cereal if it means having to clean up after eating it. Such respondents say they'd rather pick up a smoothie or protein bar instead.
Now, I know this doesn't apply to everyone -- some of us are very diligent about washing the dishes, even if it's the last thing we want to do in the morning or evening. (I'm that way myself.)
But those who do fall into this group seem awfully spoiled or lazy, if you ask me. Seriously -- how long could it possibly take to wash a bowl thoroughly? I'd say it can be done in 10-15 seconds, if that.
Technology has made things so easy for people that many just don't want to lift a finger anymore. I suppose they care more about wasting time on their smartphones than being a responsible adult.
And the worst part about it is that many people don't "outgrow" this. Many of these millennials will merely rely on their partners to wash the dishes for them. And once they get fed up with having to do all the household chores, couples can run into serious problems.
If you're guilty of doing this, try changing your ways. The trick is to wash the bowl as soon as you're done eating. If you make a habit of leaving stuff in the sink to wash later, the chances of you doing so diminish greatly. It's better to get it out of the way quickly without even thinking twice!
