Millenials take the blame for a lot. The downfall of modern democracy, workplace attrition, the need for Tinder.

But worst of all: "Many Millenials don't even own a can opener!"

I've heard this exclamation a few times over the last year, and it baffles me every single time.

As the resentful owner of a rusty, ineffective, 20-year-old tin opener (or "can" opener, for you Americans), I applaud those aspirational young people who quite rightly question the need to own a dated and unnecessary piece of kitchen equipment.
