This guy doesn’t seem to mind the younger gen making fun of millennials for owning VHS tapes or watching shows on TV during the pre-Netflix era, long before the streaming revolution commenced.
He empathized instead, making the point that gen Z missed out on the experience of viewing TV with commercial breaks. How could they understand the “high stakes adrenaline” rush, as he says it, getting back to the couch before the show came back on?
Breaking the News
Someone’s got to do it. In this case, it was her cousin who informed her that she was old due to the fact she was born in the last century.
So, here’s a girl who was born in the ‘90s who was wearing her birth year like an amulet. Sadly being proud of being a 90s baby is passé if gen Zers are to be believed. (Requisite sad face pouring tears emoji.)
One person, sniggering about gen Z and their propensity to think they invented decades-old trends, talked about how absurd it all is.
*Discovering* butterfly hair clips? Thinking people need *instructions* on how to use them? Thinking *you* are the right person for the job? Just no. No to all of these. Another Redditor commented saying the younger gen will mix blue and yellow together and proclaim they invented a new color. “Blellow!”
Some Are Sandwiched Between
It’s confusing! This is a problem for many kids on social media. Being born in the late-90s, it might feel like you are a millennial, you may have been identifying with millennials for years, but if you read the official categories of the two gens, you’ll find that “millennial” doesn’t officially end until 1996 births.
So, this person, as an “old” gen Z, which stretches from 1997 to 2012, feels, like many others, that they are forced to choose one. Millennial slang can be so annoying to her, that she would just rather be a Z.
Clapping Back in Cursive
With gen Z’s constant teasing, this millennial came up with a way to keep the youngsters at bay. He suggested writing in code. Nope, not morse code... cursive "code."
Cursive writing, deemed too extra at many schools in America, went out the window in 2010. The point is, that millennials used this education shortcoming to fire back to a post about skinny jeans and side parts. When life hands you lemons...
