Millennials are killing the doorbell. On Monday, the Wall Street Journal wrote a piece about how young people are no longer using it to announce their presence, and are instead texting, DMing, Snapping, or whatever to alert their friends that they have arrived. Our Millennial might be showing, but honestly, same.
When your doorbell rings, it’s startling!
That disruptive nature is the point—to get your attention, and it does have its benefits. Like package delivery and that way you don’t have to spend a ton of your time looking out the window, scanning the street for delivery trucks.
If you don’t like doorbells, they won’t actually be disappearing any time soon- there is no sign that new houses are being built without doorbells, and they often are required by local building codes.
