Most millennials would not know what a schematic is. Even fewer would recognize a "Sam's facts" repair guide for electrical equipment. I used to be able to fix all sorts of electronics with no training using nothing but basic tools, an o'scope and a Sams.

Sealed beam headlights would probably confound most younger folks. The very idea that just 6 headlight designs were enough to satisfy the needs of every car on the road (more or less) is foreign to them.
Work boots. It's almost impossible to find young people to do actual work where you show up every day, on time, and work hard till the end of the day without their cellphone. Believe me I've been trying to find good help for years. Somewhere along the line this generation lost any type of work ethics. And then when they do show up they think everything is unfair and that they should make 3× more $ than someone who's been working for 20 years to do 1/4 as much work. If any of you have young help that actually is a good worker do everything you can to keep them because they're VERY hard to find.
I was letting a youngster shoot my T/C G2 22LR carbine. He watched me load it, shot and pulled the trigger again, mystified that it didn't fire again. He had been shooting his Grandfathers 10-22, used to emptying a magazine with a few pulls of the trigger.
