Millennials feel like they are taking heat from both sides, sandwiched between baby boomers on the left and now gen Z on the right.
Venting her frustration, this person posted a GIF (a known millennial identifier) to show her disbelief that gen Z had successfully tagged her entire generation with the skinny jeans label. She’s also freaking out about boomers attacking gen M for canceling paper napkins. The tables are turned. Who doesn’t remember that it was millennials who went after the baby boomer generation with the “OK boomer” thing?
Emails Are So Out
How do you spot a gen Z? Just send them an email. You probably won’t hear back. But if you do, it’ll be as short as a DM.
That’s because gen Z detests email. They never had to rely on it. To them, it is obsolete, and they do not acknowledge it as a legit form of communication. The "endless" back and forth on email and deciphering long, drawn-out threads is just...so extra!
Called Out By a 13-Year-Old
This millennial was called out by his gen Z cousin. Why? For owning VHS tapes. We've all tried to share things that made us nostalgic with the younger generation. Unfortunately, instead of being met with sympathy, this person got burned!
Well, this 13-year-old decided the throw the ultimate blow and call their cousin OLD. That V-H-escalated quickly!
Creeping into our 30s is astonishing enough. But when people look around and see that others think you are really old, just for crossing the end of the 20s line, it is not a good experience.
Through the eyes of a younger person, being that age feels like the worst thing that could ever happen. Well buddy, do we have news for you!
The Late-1900s Is a Thing That Happened
Coming to terms with reality is not a walk in the park. This person is a teacher, and she could hardly believe what she read when a kid described something that happened barely 25 years ago as the “late 1900s.”
Maybe it would've been better if the student called it “the late 20th century.” At least it would be better for this teacher's ego!
