Here’s how issues have been taking part in out on the Internet recently:
Gen Z: Look at these Millennials with their aspect components, skinny denims, and laughing emojis. Aren’t they valuable? And that Starbucks venti latte? So cheugy.
Millennials: WTF have you learnt?! Gen Z be carrying “mom jeans” 😂
Gen X (two weeks after no matter shit blew up on Twitter): Meh…IDGAF
We Gen Xers are the forgotten technology. The latchkey youngsters. The drinking-water-from-the-hose, staying-out-until-the-streetlights-came-on, making-ourselves-microwave-dinners technology. We grew up realizing that nobody gave a shit about what we have been doing again then, and we all know that nobody offers a shit about what we’re doing now.
And you already know what? We prefer it that approach.
Gen Z: lol fucking millennials
Millennials: lol fucking boomers.
Boomers: Fuck all y’all youngsters

We don’t get embarrassed and defensive after we discover out that our garments aren’t fashionable (I feel the youngsters would possibly say one thing like bussin’ or drippy, however I’m positive even these phrases are outdated by now). We don’t thoughts that our knee-high boots or joggers are thought of cheugy. Those boots look scorching and joggers are comfy AF. Sure, my teenagers would possibly name me “sweaty” after I work onerous placing collectively a presentation for work. But we Gen Xers know that it takes being just a little “sweaty” to get shit achieved.
For the report, I’m on the tail finish of the Gen X spectrum. Generation X is outlined loosely as people born between 1965-1980, and I used to be born in 1977. I’ve seen folks born on the finish of the ‘80s known as Xennials, or most just lately “geriatric millennials.” Which rattling close to brought on all the Internet to burst right into a flame of purple scorching Millennial rage.
Meanwhile, we Gen Xers are over right here rolling our eyes. Ain’t no person acquired time for that. We’re too drained from our perimenopause evening sweats and too busy plucking our chin hairs to care. Yeah, we’re previous. We already know this.
In truth, we Gen Xers have been coping with that bizarre and complicated mess that comes with being “of a certain age” for some time now. We’re over it and we give zero fucks about this nonsense. And we all know the reality – all these “drippy” trend traits began with us after we have been ingesting bathtub wop from purple solo cups at a university rager within the ‘90s. Don’t consider me? We may need a grainy picture someplace to show it. Maybe.
Most Gen Xers are the mother and father of these Gen Zers who’re education Millennials and Gen X proper now and let me let you know: We DO NOT CARE. We have been raised on a heavy weight-reduction plan of “I’m your parent, not your friend” so we give not one single fuck about what our teenagers and younger 20-somethings consider us. These ongoing generational battles are as previous as time and so very unoriginal.
You suppose we’re previous and untrendy? Whatevs. (See? We don’t even care that we’re utilizing embarrassing slang.) We’re not cool anymore and we all know it. While Millennials, Gen Zers, and even the Boomers tear one another to shreds on Twitter over shit just like the cool issue of Target throw pillows (not that cool) and whether or not to make use of laughing emojis (sure, please), we’re over right here doing our factor, nonetheless comparatively forgotten and ignored.
And secretly relishing it.
