Recent office interactions have revealed that one of my millennial co-workers does not really watch television. The disclosure came during a one-sided conversation about “The Walking Dead,” which begins its seventh season on Oct. 23. This co-worker has not seen a single episode of the popular zombie drama.
“What do you like to do instead of watching television?” I asked.
“I feel like when I have time to relax, I do something else rather than sit in front of a television screen.”
“But what specifically do you do during primetime TV hours?”
“I’m either out, or reading or I’m on my laptop.”
In previous conversations, this co-worker has demonstrated an above-average interest in, and knowledge of, movies, the Amanda Knox documentary on Netflix being a recent favorite. At press time, this person has expressed no desire to play Pokemon Go.
This has been My Millennial Co-worker. Thank you and good night.
