The Debate Over Using the Top Sheet Seems to Rage On
While many Boomers and members of Gen X and Gen Y probably use a top sheet, Millennials have decided that the top sheet is pointless. At least, one Millennial named Jesse Lynn Harte has decided that top sheets are the greatest thing that Millennials have killed.
People say millennials “killed” chain restaurants, marriage, & napkins… But WHEN will they acknowledge our greatest take-down yet??TOP SHEETS. I don’t know a single millennial who uses one. Top sheets are archaic. This is just the truth.

When the 22-year-old wrote her humorous tweet, she never expected it to get so much attention. She was simply tired of people talking about how many things Millennials have killed, so she decided to make light of the situation. Yet, she is serious about not using a top sheet an never planning on using one.
Harte’s tweet has been retweeted over 21,000 times and has received over 65,000 likes.
Okay of all the hilarious things i tweet, THIS is the one that goes viral??????

Many people commented on Harte’s tweet, but they were not all on Harte’s side when it comes to the top sheet controversy. Even some Millennials admitted to preferring a top sheet.
Wait I do!!! It’s another layer of snuggliness!!

That awesome coolness of the bottom side of a pillow? Yeah, that’s what you’re missing without a top sheet. Even more – that awesome coolness covers your whole body. AND the sheet cools off far quicker than a comforter.

Other Millennials said they didn’t even know what a top sheet was until they read the comments on Harte’s post.
Lol What the hell is a top sheet ?

Whether or not you use a top sheet, it is important to wash your bedding on a regular basis. One benefit of a top sheet is that it protects your comforter or blankets from your skin which means those bulky items don’t need to be washed as often.
On the flip side, if you don’t use a top sheet, making your bed is much easier since there is only one top layer.
Do you use a top sheet? Are you surprised there are people who didn’t even know what a top sheet was (or are you one of those people)?
