Another teacher admitted she was confronted by an inconvenient truth. She realized that one of her favorite TV shows took place in the last century when a student pointed it out. Something that seemed full of warm and fuzzy memories suddenly burned with mortification.
Not only was the show so old that it took place in the 20th century, but it was also deemed “traditional.” In other words, old and for unenlightened people.
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!
Gwen and Gen Z Don't Mix
Evidently, most millennials identify with “Just a Girl” singer from the ‘90s, Gwen Stefani. So, if they like something, gen Z, in swift knee-jerk fashion, must reject it. Just like the side part, skinny jeans, and the laughing and crying emoji, gen Z will oppose it.
So the equation is simple. Anything millennials like=uncool. We would argue that anyone who has anything against Gwen doesn't know what they're talking about but that might give us away so we'll stay mute on this one.
Comes Out Swinging
Ending an argument with “let that sink in.” A clear sign of fortitude. This tweet is laying it down! It is a known fact that fashion trends make comebacks every now and then. But here they take this regular social phenomenon and turn it into an insult. Good times.
Putting middle parts in their place, this tweeter claimed it was from her parents’ generation, where they got their hairstyle from. "Mom jeans," the gen X pick, come from boomers, she says. Throwing gen Zs in with the baby boomers is serious business.
