Reporter Can't Believe Teens Today Can't Write Checks Or Use Landlines

It turns out sewing, laundry and leaving voicemails aren’t the only things millennials are struggling with these days.

During a recent segment on Chicago’s WGN Morning News, reporter Pat Tomasulo wanted to see whether some local seniors at Lane Tech High School were capable of performing a number of “adult” life skills.

The results? Well, let’s just say many of these teens -- who happen to fall on the younger end of the "millennial" spectrum -- had a rough go of tasks like writing a check, writing in cursive, addressing an envelope and using a landline. (Gotta dial “9” first on that office line, kiddos!)

And no, the landline is not a dinosaur -- at least not yet.
