Gen X'd Out

No, baby boomers, millennials aren’t poor because they eat smashed avocado

“I have seen young people order smashed avocado with crumbled feta on five-grain toasted bread at $22 a pop and more.

How often are they eating out? Twenty-two dollars several times a week could go towards a deposit on a house,”

Middle-aged, own a house (ok, apt), would not pay $22 for avocado toast, don’t care if others do, but no one asked me…
