Show Some Grace Under Pressure.
A common internet complaint is that millennials don’t know how to do things for themselves. For instance, some guys out in Washington have advertised on Craigslist for an experienced dad to grill burgers and hot dogs for them. They say they’re not up to the fatherly mantel of grill master.
If you haven’t got a hold on grilling yourself — and can’t track down a loaner dad — try grabbing a hot dog at the ballpark. Or maybe scrap the grilling idea entirely and try out one of these events.
