Millennials have not only invaded the workplace, but more and more are becoming our neighbors — either when we move to an apartment or when they buy their first suburban home.
While most of us get along, there’s still a generation gap, according to a Trulia survey. About 25 percent of millennials and just 6 percent of boomers think of their neighbors as strangers rather than friends. Perhaps more troubling is that about 60 percent of the younger generation reported a gripe with a neighbor, especially noise from barking dogs or loud music.
Busting the stereotype of the grouchy older neighbor, about 60 percent of boomers have reported no problems with their neighbors. Millennial men also tend to call the authorities rather than knock on doors when it comes to dealing with problems. Millennial women and boomers generally ignore the problems.
