These 25 Unfiltered Tweets by Millennials Fed up With Boomers' Advice Will Make You Laugh: "Always on Your Damn Phone"
If you have never encountered the phrase "Ok Boomer," then you probably live under a rock. Boomers are our predecessors and belong from the 1946 to 1964 generation. They tell us how they used to live a good life with a much lower salary and often refuse to consider that the world has moved on. LOL.
Dictionary.com defines 'Ok Boomer' as a "Viral internet slang phrase used often in a humorous or ironic manner to call out or dismiss out-of-touch or close-minded opinions associated with the Baby Boomer generation and older people more generally...The specific slang expression 'OK boomer' took off in early 2019, issued especially from millennials and Generation Z as a reply or reaction to older users who posted content that condescended younger generations or provoked their sensibilities." GenZ and Baby Boomers often lock horns on topics like gender fluidity, budgeting and social media. According to a New York Times writer, Taylor Lorenz, "Generation Z's endlessly repeated retort to the problem of older people who just don't get it, a rallying cry for millions of fed-up kids."
Boomers' experiences and wisdom always come in handy but because GenZ cannot "keep calm," they expressed their hard-hitting opinions on boomers on Twitter. Here are 25 of them.
It's always funny to me when Boomers accuse young people of being overly sensitive "special snowflakes" who can't handle the real world.— Existential Comics (@existentialcoms) April 21, 2023
My dudes, we all worked in retail. We know which generation is most likely to fly off the handle over the most minor inconvenience imaginable.
2. Who is to blame?
I love it when boomers get mad at millennials and gen z for not knowing how to like fix things or cook properly when they were the ones who took things like Home Economics and Shop out of schools because they rather have us focus on standardized tests— MtnDewSkillissue (@SkillissueUwU) February 20, 2023
I love when boomers like Bill Maher will be like “I’m not a conservative. I haven’t changed any of my views it’s society changing around me.” Like what exactly do you think that means? You are describing being conservative lmao.— Mac (@GoodPoliticGuy) May 2, 2023
4. A sandwich costs more now
Why do boomers so confidently tell us that the cost of living is manageable because they were able to do it 40 years ago? What’s not clicking— Pistachio (@HarleyShah) January 19, 2023
I hate it when baby boomers are like "your generation is too sensitive!".— Eden Dranger (@Eden_Eats) February 1, 2023
Okay, Phyllis, I'm not the one writing 6 paragraph Yelp reviews because you didn’t like the colors of the restaurant’s chairs.
6. Good idea.
someone please make a reality TV show where boomers apply to jobs with the wildly outdated advice they unsolicitedly give millenials/Gen Z I am begging— Allison Perry (available for work 6/30) (@allisonperryart) March 13, 2023
7. True that
Many boomers will have hard realizations when dealing with Gen Zs. GenZs are unapologetic and bold in the way of doing things.— Avneesh (@browntechguy1) February 25, 2023
It might look like they are entitled but really they are challenging the status quo and that is good. I love this.
Nobody needs therapy more yet refuses it more strenuously than boomers.— Jennifer Public Radio 💎 (@AmbientSynthy) February 5, 2023
I love when Boomers are like, “we didn’t do anything, it was the politicians!”— Stephen Punwasi 🏚️📉🐈☃️ (@StephenPunwasi) March 21, 2023
Yeah, the largest voter base, that still out numbers other generations in districts, had no choice but to vote for policies that inflated their assets & dumped liabilities on the next generation.
I love it when boomers post the "Hard times create strong men, strong men create good times [etc.]" meme, because it's like, dude, you lived through like the easiest best times ever, so what exactly do you think that would that make you, according that meme?— PolarJohan (@PolarJohan15) April 25, 2023
love it when boomers give unsolicited opinions on tattoos. “imagine how bad that’s going to look in 50 years” my brother in christ imagine how bad YOU are going to look in 50 years— 𝔐𝔦𝔩𝔩𝔦 ॐ (@weirdleisure) January 31, 2023
12. Like seriously
I love how boomers act like they figured out something astronomical when they say "no one wants to work anymore." Like no, people NEVER wanted to work. Everyone needs money to get by the same as you. Now go finish your crossword with all the words spelled wrong.— Travis (@EliteRiptide) April 27, 2023
13. It turns out
boomers told us “do what you love and it will never feel like work” when in reality it just makes you dislike that thing you loved— St. Vincent Price (@muddaub) February 13, 2023
14. And they still continue
Love when a boomer says some of the most heinously racist shit you've ever heard and all the women are visually uncomfortable— 𝕁𝕁𝔾 ➐ (@JiuJitsuGroyper) April 29, 2023
15. Life on rent
I love it when boomers get offended about being told they had it easy. We understand you also worked a job, the difference is you got to own a house. You got to own all the houses.— Doobyis (@Doobyis) March 26, 2023
Boomers love telling you to “get a real job”, then go get paid 6 figures to send 5 emails a week— tim (Bad Boy arc) (@HydrationChimp) April 17, 2023
I love when boomers unironically share memes that are self-owns directed at themselves.— Avery (@VarnesTheVictor) February 2, 2023
"When I grew up, all I had to play with was a cardboard box and myself"
That's great and all, Carol, but you still grew up to be a bigoted dinosaur with no imagination. 🦕
18. How is that fair?
Boomers be like, I had a bad childhood so you will too— Steph🗯️⚓ (@MaritimeJunkie) April 24, 2023
I love when boomers are like "you don't remember ANY phone numbers or addresses now that you can put it in your phone" like address books and Big Planner didn't exist— Lime-inal Space (@zestylime) April 27, 2023
20. Respect is a given
I love it when the most disrespectful generation ever (boomers) tells someone else they're too young to have any respect.— Walters (@MrWalters31) February 25, 2023
Boomers really will be like “music sucks today” and then vote to cut funding for band class and bully their grandkids for wanting to major in music— Mikey McDowell (@LilMikeyMcPhD) April 26, 2023
22. Neighbors who?
i love when boomers say “no one even knows their neighbors anymore” pls why did anyone want to converse with neighbors to begin with. sounds terrible.— sof (@mickeylilies) January 25, 2023
23. Good Luck
Sorry guys, I took the boomers’ advice and sold all my #Bitcoin. Just going to eat less avocado toast, and worship my 401k until I retire when I’m 85.— Roy⚡️ (@OrangeTruth88) March 18, 2023
“always on your damn phone”— Ulysse Carrière (@inherent_itgirl) February 21, 2023
only boomers still believe that a phone is an object. for everyone under 40, it’s a prosthetic extension of your transcendental unity of apperception.
25. Hell yeah!
Just had a company straight lie to me on the 1st interview to second. Said the position was customer service rep then it turned into commission only door knocking. 🤡🌎no benefits— Astro Morrigan ♀⚡️ (@Morrigan_Astro) May 1, 2023
Either of course.
And boomers swear this entire generation doesn’t want to work. No. We’re tired…
