    Millennials Are Sharing The Stereotypical Old People Tendencies They've Developed, And It's Hilarious

    "I don't know ANY of these new rappers. Da Baby, Lil Baby, Baby Shark…they’re all the same."

    As I've gotten older, I transitioned from judging my mom's love for HGTV and constant naps to obsessing over décor and sleep. So, when Twitter user @DontAskMeBitch2 (LOL) asked people over 25 years old to share the auntie/uncle/old people habits they've started developing as we push closer to our parents' ages, I was thrilled to see I wasn't alone.

    Hey 25+ Twitter. What ‘auntie/uncle tendencies’ do you have now that you’re old? 🤔

    Here are some of the most relatable replies:

    1.

    @DontAskMeBitch2 “Where are their parents?” And keeping my eyes on children when their parents/guardians are obviously pre-occupied in public places just in case I need to get involved or save them.
