Gen Z And Millennials, What’s Something You Wish The Older Generations Understood?



I feel damn resentful when older folks tell me I should stay home with my kids. Like, yeah I’d love to if we could afford it, which we can’t. They act like it’s a choice to go back to work, when for a lot of moms, it’s not a choice.



“I was spanked as a kid and I turned out fine.”

No, you didn’t. You’re a narcissist, get mad easily, joke about hitting your own children and even they’re sick of your bull crap to the point that they cut you off. F**k you.



Your job is not your life, you shouldn’t sacrifice time with friends and family let alone your mental wellbeing just for a paycheck



That just because I don’t want to be called something doesn’t mean I’m a baby. People are allowed to have boundaries and things they don’t feel comfortable with



Just because we’re more aware of our mental health and allow ourselves to feel what we want to feel, it doesn’t make us weak or “snowflakes”. If anything, it makes us better at coping with, well, everything!



Dad: “Just go in and ask for a job and keep going every day until they give you one.” Or “This random kid I was talking to at Wegmans (20 years ago) started in the mailroom and worked his way up and he’s making $x hundred thousand per year.”

Me: “They just tell you to submit a resume online and never respond.”



Texting is much more convenient, sometimes even better, than making a phone call.



Unless you are extremely gifted and have a way to demonstrate it, social class is becoming more locked in than it has been in generations.

The social mobility that started to become available in the first half of the 20th century, but amplified much more so in the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s started to decline in the 80s and by the 2010s was is straight up freefall.

If you do not have parents that are willing and able to support your social and financial progress from childhood through higher education (or through training in a steady trade) you are at very real risk of falling through the cracks of this society through no fault of your own.



That electronics don’t rot your brain,and that vaccines ARE effective.



Just because I know where/how to find the answer to something doesn’t mean I “think I’m smarter than you.”

I’m just trying to save both of us from wasting time.
