Baby Boomer Culture

Here are some great snippets taken from Tweets on Buzzfeed about Baby Boomer culture that you may relate to...

  • Forcing their kids to go to uni then disagreeing with the facts that they learned there.
  • Demanding the sale price of items after the sale has already ended.
  • Telling stories at a dinner party where they mention the ethnicity of every single person in the story, regardless of relevance…
  • Telling the cashier they don’t use the self-checkout because it takes away jobs.
  • Holding their mobile phone in one hand and texting with just their pointer finger (watch the younger generation use both hands!)
  • Double spacing after the end of a sentence on a keyboard.
  • Assuming every screen is a touch screen and then getting annoyed when it doesn’t work!
  • Commenting ‘yum’ on every food pic that every restaurant shares on their social media sites.
  • Name drop the first name of a random person in a conversation that they met 40 years ago without explaining who they are or how they know them.
  • Lining up to board the plane 30 minutes beforehand. Licking their finger to grab a sheet of paper.
  • Using the comment section of someone’s image on facebook to tell them hello and ask how they are doing.
  • Taking the same group photo on 10 different phones rather than taking one photo and sending to each other.
