Redditor u/LostMediaHoarder took to the subreddit r/WhitePeopleTwitter to ask people's opinions on this tweet by @marykatbow: “What's a piece of advice that old people like to give that is absolutely useless in 2023?”
One Redditor shared that their father-in-law told them to make cold calls or “drop off donuts at the places [they] wanted to work.” When they asked him if they could bring donuts to his office, apparently he said: “Well, no security would stop you.”
The idea that you can get any job you apply for has other Redditors riled. According to u/aathey85, their dad “insists that if you show up repeatedly, unannounced, in person that you can land any job regardless of your qualifications.”
u/SixthLegionVI agreed that this advice sucks: “Lol. I had a hard time making a student loan payment in my early 20s. Went right into the chase to let them know, and they may as well have said, ‘lol f*** you.'”
