    Though they're sometimes labeled as "lazy" and "entitled," millennials are actually making significant sacrifices in order to get ahead in their careers, CNBC reported.

    When financial services company Comet surveyed 364 single employed millennials without children, they found that relationships were an area in which 20- to 36-year-olds were willing to cut back. In fact, 41 percent said they would end a relationship for a promotion.

    Comet also found that almost a third said they would end a relationship for a raise. These workers on average said that a $36,000 raise would convince them to put off having a relationship.

    Millennials are so focused on career advancement, that respondents admitted that they'd be willing to stay single for 11 years, delay marriage for seven years and put off having kids for eight — if it meant getting ahead at work, according to the Comet survey.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.
