19 Times Baby Boomers Proved That Times Change, But They Don’t
70s, 80s, 90s borns struggle to understand today's youths. They often sound out-of-touch. Forums asked youths about the most annoying comment from a baby-boomer. See top answers.
PRICES ARE SO HIGH
"My grandparents don't comprehend today's item values. They deem reasonable prices high and are unaware of rental costs."
ASK FOR A JOB APPLICATION
“‘Just walk in and ask for a job application!’ or ‘Just call in and ask them how your interview went.’ It doesn’t work like that anymore, Mom!”
YOU WILL MAGICALLY FIND YOUR DREAM JOB
“Some nonsense about how after I graduate, I’d magically find myself in my dream job.”
WATCH HISTORY CHANNEL
“I’m a history major, and a boomer told me to watch the History Channel for the full story.”
YOU DON’T NEED LOANS
"'Just work part-time to pay for college', Grandpa said. I have a Master's degree, in my 30s, only making $30k annually."
"Praising ‘perfect' past ignoring flaws like legal marital rape, wife-beating, and anti-gay laws. Ah, the 'good old days'."
MILLENNIALS DON’T CARE ABOUT ANYTHING
Argued with my Lyft driver who blamed job loss as a jeweler on millennials, saying they're frivolous and feel entitled to 'mom and dad's house'.
THERE WAS NO DEPRESSION
"No depression or PTSD when I was young. Just got over it. But friends died, lost minds. Was it because mental health was ignored?"
JUST GO TO THE DOCTOR
"Sick? Just see a doctor? No. I don’t need a $500 bill from a careless provider who'll just give me Amoxicillin and say I'm fine. I'd prefer to die.”
YOU HAVE GOT SO MUCH STUFF
"They tell the youth, 'you have too much stuff.' Forced to live in a cramped rental, lacking basic storage, while the elder lounges in a vast, cluttered 5-bedroom home."
YOU SPEND TOO MUCH TIME ON THE PHONE
"My mom says we're on our phones too much despite school and chores. Meanwhile, she's on Facebook, smoking, or bike-riding with her boyfriend."
I WILL GO TO WORK NO MATTER WHAT
"My wife, a restaurant worker, has been vomiting. Her stepdad insists she works unless she's dead. He disregards the law forbidding her to handle food within 24hrs of vomiting."
YOU ARE TOO YOUNG
“I have very severe chronic pain. Plenty of older folks have told me I’m ‘too young’ to be in this pain clinic that I go to.”
CLIMATE CHANGE ISN’T REAL
“That climate change isn’t real (my dad said this).”
YOU CALL THAT A JOB?
"I don't follow Mon-Fri work schedule. Often, my off days land on weekends. My great-aunt's puzzled when she sees me off on Tuesdays. 'Not working?', 'In my day-' she'd say."
“Video games can’t be a hobby.”
YOU ARE NOT ADULT UNTIL YOU HAVE KIDS
“You’re not an adult until you have kids after expressing my choice to be child-free.”
YOU ARE AN IDIOT
“A school secretary blamed me for not memorizing phone numbers when my granddad forgot me. She thought I missed the bus; I never rode one. Glad I'm in high school now."
YOUR GENERATION HAS NO SOCIAL SKILLS
"No one in your generation has social skills", Barbra, because you micromanaged us. Maybe if you didn't disrupt our development, we wouldn't have social anxiety.
