What stresses millennials?

If you look up “millennials + stress” you'll see some charts and graphs and a few ideas on how to handle stress, but not much on what is causing the stress. Limbaugh read a list today, which I found so vacuous and funny, I had to check and see if it was a real survey. Well, you still don't know about things published as "a study," or "research,' but here's the list--I looked it up--supposedly, someone asked them. I surely would have guessed losing a smart phone would be #1. They don't breathe without them. Notice how much is digital--perhaps they need to go off the grid now to prepared for the New Green Deal, which will necessarily also have to eliminate the phones. Don't know why choosing what to wear would even be on the list--how hard is it to pick out a pair of jeans? And shouldn't school loan payments be higher, like maybe #2 or #3?

Here are the top 20 stressful scenarios reported by millennials:

1. Losing wallet/credit card

2. Arguing with partner

3. Commute/traffic delays

4. Losing phone

5. Arriving late to work

6. Slow WiFi

7. Phone battery dying

8. Forgetting passwords

9. Credit card fraud

10. Forgetting phone charger

11. Losing/misplacing keys

12. Paying bills

13. Job interviews

14. Phone screen breaking

15. Credit card bills

16. Check engine light coming on

17. School loan payments

18. Job security

19. Choosing what to wear

20. Washing dishes
