"Proud Millennials"

Our joint account runs at zero - we budget using pots. The payment for our Tesco order declined as I hadn’t shifted the money from the pot…

Tesco phoned. I apologised and said that I just needed to move the money from the pot. The girl on the phone said “Do you use Monzo? I use Monzo because I’m a proud millennial” as if being a “millennial” is a requirement to use Monzo :slight_smile:

I thought that a very bizarre thing to say - it amused me…

So how many Millenials use Monzo, do they form the majority of customers?

I’m proudly Gen X :smiley:

edit - the wife informs me that she is a millennial. Seems they’re everywhere! :stuck_out_tongue:

You go to a student style pub and the Hot Coral is everywhere

Profitable customers? That’s up for debate

Proud millennial user!

And yes, the stereotype is true - I’m lazy, I expect everything and I get bored quickly… :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

Gen Z? We’re at Gen Z already? When did that happen? :stuck_out_tongue:

Shouldn’t be too surprising when you consider that the oldest millennials are now reaching 40. So the Zoomers cover the mid to late '90s to 2010. Children born after 2010 are yet another generation, but I don’t think they’re sentinent enough to have claimed a name yet.

ETA: Generation Alpha comes next, apparently.

The Oldest zoomers are 23 but some people put the bar at the year 2000 so it would be 20.

I thought Millenials were '81 to '96? - so the oldest would be be 39… bah, so I’m only months from being in that cohort.

Get off of my lawn, the lot of you.

Not eveyone pegs it to 1981, I align with definitions that put the start year for millennials at 1980 myself.

It’s pretty much a liminal year, and people born that year can more or less self-define, I’d say. A lot is down to the crowd you mixed with; if you had older siblings or were born early in the year, and so you mixed with mostly Gen Xers, you can say you’re Gen X. If you were born later in the year or you had no siblings and mixed with people your age or younger, you can say you’re millennial.

it’s approximately those born from 1980 to 1995.

So I was born at the start of 79, and most of my pals are from the years before. So I’m safely X - my reality has not changed for me :smiley:

I used my Monzo card the other day and the transaction got declined because I had reached my contactless limit. The guy at the till was impressed that I could whip out my phone to find out what was going on.
Since he hadn’t heard of Monzo I ended up explaining the benefits of having the account.

Given millennials have been repeatedly done over by a system in which they have little to no say, I suppose pride is all they can cling to!
