Oct 11 - Home Depot Panics Over Millennials
 

 
Home Depot Panics Over Millennials; Forced To Host Tutorials On Using Tape Measures, Hammering Nails

As wall street analysts celebrate the coming of age of the millennial generation, a group of young people who were supposed to lead another revolutionary wave of consumerism if only they could work long enough to escape their parents' basement, retailers like Home Depot are panicked about selling into what will soon be America's largest demographic...but not for the reasons you might think.

While avocado resellers like Whole Foods only have to worry about creating a catchy advertising campaign to attract millennials, Home Depot is in full-on panic mode after realizing that an entire generation of Americans have absolutely no clue how to use their products. As the Wall Street Journal points out, the company has been forced to spend millions to create video tutorials and host in-store classes on how to do everything from using a tape measure to mopping a floor and hammering a nail.

Home Depot's VP of marketing admits she was originally hesitant because she thought some of their videos might be a bit too "condescending" but she quickly learned they were very necessary for our pampered millennials.

In June the company introduced a series of online workshops, including videos on how to use a tape measure and how to hide cords, that were so basic some executives worried they were condescending. “You have to start somewhere,” Mr. Decker says.

Lisa DeStefano, Home Depot vice president of marketing, initially hesitated looking over the list of proposed video lessons, chosen based on high-frequency online search queries. “Were we selling people short? Were these just too obvious?” she says she asked her team. On the tape-measure tutorial, “I said ‘come on, how many things can you say about it?’ ” Ms. DeStefano says.

Boxden members frown on people who own their own homes. They only rent in over-prized apartments in the city. Not surprised they don't know how to use a tape measure

yeah a few weeks ago few friends invited me out and i told them i was busy changing my brakes and they couldn't understand, they started saying things like why do you have to stay at the mechanic why can't you just drop your car and go i had to break it down for them that i was personally changing my own brakes.
but then they started asking why i didn't just pay someone to do it

the concept of fixing things is foreign to some people

This is 100% accurate because I’m 30 and can’t fix a fu*king thing. I can of course read directions but i just care not to.

Funny how all these companies blame millennials instead of just accepting that the world is changing, technology is advancing. Time to adapt.
