Why A Lot Of Millennials Don't Ring Doorbells Anymore


Millennials have been blamed for killing many things-- and now it seems they're coming for doorbells. Mashable reports that millennials and Gen Zers are "so used to texting upon arrival that the sound of a ringing doorbell freaks them out." A 23-year-old from England says she only uses a doorbell as a last resort, while a 19-year-old says, "Doorbells are dead," and a 21-year-old adds, "I loathe how interruptive doorbells are." It seems many millennials now associate a ringing doorbell with "stranger danger" more than anything else.
