17 Millennials/Gen Z'ers Who Are D-O-N-E With Baby Boomers

With outdated outlooks, rude emails, and more.

We love everybody, but let's be real: Baby boomers can be a lot. And I've noticed that millennials are pretty fed up...

Fox

1. With the lack of tech skills:

today a baby boomer came up to my register to pay for his coffee. I let him know that his phone flashlight on and he chuckled and said “yeah i know, it’s been on for a couple days i can’t quite figure out how to turn it off” https://t.co/isajwjGRbf

2. With their outlook on therapy:

Boomers: I heard she went to *looks around nervously* *whispers* ᵀʰᵉʳᵃᵖʸ Millennials/Gen Z: LMAOOOO YALL GUESS WHAT MY THERAPIST TOLD ME TODAY

3. With "when I was your age" moments:

I can’t stand when you teach a baby boomer something computer related and then they try and explain something back to you. I showed someone how to print today and she goes “we used to use carbon paper to make copies, you probably don’t even know what carbon paper is”.

4. With questions like this:

Today a Baby Boomer asked me how lesbians have sex. I am not, nor have I ever been lesbian, but I took a certain pleasure in seeing her expression as I explained the different toys and ways women have intercourse. +

5. With judgment:

Today a baby boomer said “that’s sad!” when I was using my phone calculator to add the correct tip to my bill and now I’m “sad!” I didn’t round house kick him in the balls

6. With ignorance:

Yesterday a baby boomer said to me (word for word) while I was serving her “there’s nothing we can do about climate change so we might as well enjoy the warm weather”

7. With brattiness:

yesterday at work a baby boomer got mad that we didn’t have clam chowder he didn’t even ask for and was like “wah wah there’s something wrong with your generation” & then dissambled a whole sandwich on a table and left. first of all u ruined the economy, & second of all, gerald,

8. With complaints:

Accidentally had an airpod in when dealing with a customer and he got mad at me and I told him it was a hearing aid and he apologized. Dumb ass boomer

9. With unnecessary pieces about millennials:

this is why I hate baby boomers lmfao

10. With dumb statements:

Another baby boomer at work looked at the tattoo on my arm and said “you know those are permanent right” and i said no

11. With unrealistic job advice:

Baby boomers: Why don't you just call/drop in and see if they're hiring?? Job descriptions: do NOT call this office or so help me god I will cut your head off and dropkick it through your mother's front window you fucking animals

12. With unfair expectations:

baby boomers: millennials are SO ENTITLED! also baby boomers: hey can you work on your day off and do something that is out of your job description but we wont pay you for the extra work pwetty pwease hehe now look at MY SON'S BABY PICTURES

13. With their tired complaints:

boomers who say “get off your phone” don’t get that there’s the equivalent of the moon landing happening every 5 minutes on this thing. I spent yesterday watching 2 e girls fight over a podcaster, today it’s a dog playing jenga. sorry I’m not drinking out of the hose or whatever

14. With their perspective on being "soft":

[Baby boomer voice] Kids today are too soft. In MY day we were emotionally abused by our parents and we repressed our trauma so deeply we incorporated that abuse into a toxic system of values that prize a mythological "toughness" at the expense of actually dealing with our pain

15. With rude emails:

16. And finally, with mansplaining:

Someone just mansplained Google Translate to me. Does Google have a translate function for telling a baby boomer "Yes I know what I'm doing, I've been using this technology since I was 9."
