For some, the assault by gen Z is tedious and unrelenting. This millennial is dishing a little snark but clearly wants to stay out of the way of TikTok gen Zs and their bullying tactics (which they say they learned from millennials).
Regardless, she is keeping clear of the prickly TikTok scene. Someone else commented on the tweet with the perfect meme. It features a bunch of triumphant gen Z kids beating up on a millennial kid who is flat on his back.
The funny thing about the gen Z vs millennial battle is that gen Zs will one day be in the same "old" spot that millennials find themselves in.
This person put the youngers in their place with this comment. Just wait, she says. And save for an unseen miracle, the sad part is that she’s probably right. “Enjoy it while you can” they warn.
In Defense of Skinnies.
By "this style" this millennial is referring to early 2000s low-rise bootleg jeans. Many millennials will roll over backward to keep their skinnies in their closet (even if rolling over backward in skinny jeans is impossible). This person took a different approach.
On Twitter, she says she feels underappreciated for her generation’s work to cancel the old, bejeweled flared jeans in order to introduce skinny jeans instead. There’s no need to kill skinnies. Posting a picture of those older jeans, she feels that if gen Z knew how skinny jeans came to be, they would have to be respectful. This is also known as “bargaining.”
Excellent Communication Skills
Millennials shade gen Z for not knowing how to compose an email so here’s a millennial who knows how it’s done. She is proudly showing everyone the way she uses her best manners for on-the-job correspondence, so we should probably take notes.
It’s complimentary, self-deprecatory, patient, kind, and, frankly, a little too gushy. But we’re here for it because we think it is absolutely AMAZING that she is taking the time to share it, and we are saying this from the bottom of our hearts!
Drawing the Line
Do not call a millennial a boomer. Don’t do it. This person says it is the worst thing you can say about her generation. Yikes! But check this out. If you watch the now infamous Tik Tok video "I'm proud to be a millennial,” performed by what can only be an aging former high school drama student, it’s not just dumb, it is mortifying.
It’s not just cringy, it’s creepy. Even a millennial would throw up just a tiny bit in their mouth seeing it at this point. But then again, Tide Pods??
