If You Have A Boomer In Your Life, Then You Are Keenly Aware Of These 27 Things They Tend To Do

We all really do need to know why boomers love using ellipsis in text messages instead of periods.

Needless to say, every generation has their own idiosyncrasies, but boomers truly have some of the funniest ones. And if your parents are boomers, then you are probably more than aware of them.

Here are some of the funniest questions people have asked boomers about why they are the way they are:

1.

Why do boomers insist on sending Facebook friend requests to people they don’t actually know?????? A friend of my aunt and uncle’s sent me a friend request after I posted photos from my baby shower and tagged my aunt and uncle. Why do they do this???
