"Noncommittal" would be another descriptive word for it.Is there a distinct Millenial body posture? I would suggest that there is.If your understanding of business is based primarily on Disney afternoon cartoon characters like Scrooge McDuck and Fat Cat, I'm sad for youIt's fun to sit in a restaurant, look around, and think about the complex web of trust, relationships and logistics that allow it to operate
