too much, too late

Supervising millennials is…interesting. I can’t imagine how the pre-baby boomer generation would handle them.  Not well I think, so it’s probably a blessing these groups will not overlap much in the workforce.  As a member of gen X, I am familiar with and even (occasionally) guilty of overdisclosing at work.  But you know, the term TMI was coined rather recently and, I would argue, it serves a necessary and more frequent purpose for this newly minted set of workers.  E.g. calling your boss 4 hours after your shift was supposed to start to say you want to pick up your paycheck because you need it to pay for your medication, which you need because you are sick, which btw, is why you weren’t at work today.
