Millennials get a bad wrap for a lot of things and being flaky seems to be one of them. In one new study published by Pollster.com they revealed that 45 percent of millennials surveyed don't see anything wrong with flaking - which explains why they do it so often.
A recent survey conducted by market researchers OnePoll and commissioned by Evite revealed that 3 in 10 (29%) of young Americans have a reputation for being a notorious flake.
While millennials are typically invited to more social events per month, more than 51% have accepted an invite or responded to that invite that they will attend with little or no intention of ever attending.
Forty percent of young American's see being flaky as lacking manners while another 39% think that they are not inconveniencing the host at all by flaking.
