Poor Generation X’ers.
They seem pretty much left behind right now as Millennials and Boomers soak up all the attention in the world, don’t they? But maybe they’re okay with that. Maybe they can just sit back and laugh at all the fights those two are getting into?
Well, buck up GenX, because you’re about to get some prime time recognition! Let’s get into some tweets so we can see how all of my slacker friends are feeling right about now.
And away we go…
1. Really dating yourself here.
Like fine wine, right?
I love dating Gen X people cos they got that old book smell.

2. Not looking good on either side.
The in between generation has some issues with y’all!
Boomer: And another thing, you also ruined–
Millennial: Uh. OK Boomer!
Gen. X: Oh, God. I'm bookended by lameness.

3. Here’s some real talk.
Don’t get us started Gen Z!
MY DAUGHTER: OK, GenX.
[I pull the car over to the curb]
ME: Listen Zoomer, as long as the Millennials and the Boomers are at war, we have a truce. But make no mistake, GenX is nihilistic af and if you step to us we will let you drown in student loan debt.

4. It was good while it lasted.
Think about how much of the world we could have controlled had we been better prepared!
Gen X: We learned to program when we were young. Unfortunately the thing we learned to program was a VCR.

5. I’ll be watching from over here.
It’s safe over here. And warm.

11. You did what you had to do.
Which wasn’t much.
Being Gen X, I was obligated to date and break up with several women named Jennifer.

7. We can’t even talk about it anymore?
But can we talk about Fight Club now, or…
The first rule of gen x is you do not talk about gen x.

8. Just sit back and watch.
Don’t think about it too much.
Sitting there laughing at a war between Millennials and Boomers is a perfect Gen X pastime.

9. Off to the wayside.
Just where we like to be, honestly.
Gen X being completely ignored and overlooked in the Boomers vs. Millennials battle might actually be the most Gen X thing to ever happen to us.

10. Ouch. Take it easy…
And get it right, kid!
My son just OK Boomer’d me.
Bitch I’m Gen X, I will put you in a facial recognition database and drown you in student loan debt

Keep your heads up, Gen X’ers! It’s not all that bad.
We’re out here and we’re listening to you! …at least some of the time…
So let us know what you think in the comments!
