Millennials get a bad rap. They also get bad rock. Probably bad pop, too.

The New York Post came out with ten things Millennials consider essential to "adulting." So what else could I do besides call it Commandments to maybe scare them a bit.

#5 Thou Shalt Pay For Thine Own Mode of Transportation

#6 Thou Shalt Budget Thine Finances

Aside from basically repeating several things (seriously, all of these could be combined into "thou shalt properly manage thine finances), they left a few key life stuffs out:

- bathe regularly
- do your own laundry
- keep up with the news
- don't say on social media what you wouldn't to someone's face
