     他们最爱赶潮流,玩儿转高科技,但却欠缺最基本的生活常识,熨衣服要找妈妈,不会换水龙头,甚至把鸡蛋放到微波炉去煮……你也是其中的一员吗?

    Simon Twigger, trading director at Poundland said: “It’s quite surprising to see the shift in what young Brits see as key life skills to learn.

    一磅店的贸易总监西蒙-推格尔说:“英国的年轻人改变了对于必备生活技能的看法,这令我十分吃惊。”

    “Although millennials may be social media and smart phone savvy, the majority do not have the skills that the older generations took for granted.

    “尽管千禧一代精通社交媒体和智能手机,但对于一些上代人眼中理应具备的技能,大部分人并不擅长。”

    “Fingers crossed they learn a few of them by the time they move out to avoid paying unnecessary handyman costs.”

    “但愿他们能学习一些生活技能,这样独立生活时,也可以省去一些劳务开支。”
