Okay, boomer…you know I couldn’t resist saying that!
It is kind of funny that Baby Boomers seem to be so irritated when younger folks say that, though, isn’t it?
The truth is that every generation thinks that the ones that came before them and after them are…not up to snuff, shall we say. And that’s really on display during these times where everyone is on social media sharing every single thought that pops into their heads.
You can imagine how that could result in a whole lot of arguments between Boomers, Millennials, Gen X’ers, and Gen Z’ers…
At any rate, here are some funny tweets comparing these different generations.
Can’t we all just get along, people?!?!
1. This sums it up.
And that’s comedy, people!
boomers: i hate my wife
millennials: i hate my life
gen z: beesechurger

3. Yeah, that’s pretty impressive.
Hammer Time was pretty cool, though…

gen x: stop! hammer time 🙂

4. Does this look accurate to you?
I think we all know the answer to that question…
Silent Gen: Can you show me how to work this iPhone?
Boomers: Can you show me how to ruin everything?
Gen X: Can you show me how to make a meme?
Millennials: Can you show me how to buy a house?
Gen Z: Can you show me how to use a hammer?

5. Yeah, this whole thing is really weird to me.
You’re watching other people play video games?

7. Technology moves along in quite a hurry.
Don’t get left behind!

8. Gen X had it the best, by far.
However, avocados are quite delicious.
Forms of teenage rebellion by era:
Boomers: hippy culture, selfishness
Gen X: punk rock, self pity
Millennial: avocados, enabling of political extremism
Gen Z: not dying from measles pic.twitter.com/4t1Ob7OR9V

9. Well, that escalated quickly.
Okay, Boomer. I had to say it one more time before it gets officially banned.
Boomers: "Millenials and gen z are snowflakes who get offended by ANYTHING"
Gen z: "OK boomer"
— Dr. Héloïse Stevance 🖤✨(she) (@Sydonahi) November 9, 2019
10. If you can’t take the heat…
Stay out of the kitchen!
boomers call gen z snowflakes
boomers call milennials lazy
gen z: ok boomer
— Lulu🌈🍔🎏 (@luulubuu) November 1, 2019
11. Well, I guess Gen Z has done one thing right so far.
That’s very innovative!
boomers: work harder
millennials: play smarter
gen z: baja blast condoms

12. This is definitely on point.
What a crazy world we live in…
boomers: doesn’t make eye contact, leaves $1 tip, leaves a mess
gen x: says their pleases and thank yous, $5 tip and they MIGHT stack their cups
millennials: smiles, asks how their day is going, leaves a good ass tip
gen z: will literally die for the staff
