Michelle finds a suitable time and sends him an invitation to the meeting. Interestingly, the coworker replied saying, "I have a lot of meetings that day, I might be feeling really depleted. Could you send it for a different day?" The woman was initially shocked and told her viewers that she was doing the meeting as a favor for him since he requested it. But she immediately commends the individual for being so professionally blunt.

Another user, @randomshytfromrandomguy, said, "I'm a millennial and I think deep down, Gen Z are doing things I never had the courage to do but wanted to." @jean9976 appreciated the woman's response, saying, "Respect to you. Some people would get mad and call it off. That's why most of us have to find tons of excuses and lies to just say no."

This is just one of many things older generations can learn from Gen Z. Many people from this generation are embracing the concept of "soft saving" or "soft money," which basically involves making decisions to live life easily. Sales engineer Hosanna Hali (@thetechcornr on TikTok) has been taking part in this emerging trend and posting videos about it. The woman also shared a video about how she was only obsessed with "the life" on Instagram.

She spoke about "soft saving" to news.com.au, saying, "It is picking an activity that you know makes you feel so much better about yourself and having a monetary value attached to it." In one of her videos, the woman extensively gives out her views on the topic through a text overlay while she opens a bottle of wine. She mentions how she "desperately" wanted to climb the corporate ladder but had changed her mindset.
