The funny thing about the gen Z vs millennial battle is that gen Zs will one day be in the same “old” spot that millennials find themselves in.
This person put the youngers in their place with this comment. Just wait, she says. And save for an unseen miracle, the sad part is that she’s probably right. “Enjoy it while you can” they warn.
She’s Got a Point
How does it make sense that millennials are called old? An embarrassing number of them are still living with their parents and paying off their student loans. An even bigger number of them have not hit the home ownership milestone.
We'd LOVE to see gen Zs try to buy a house these days! They would have Z-ero success...Ha Ha Ha.
This gen Zer has a bone to pick with the footwear that millennials choose to wear. Apparently wearing Vans (the skater shoe brand) brand has an expiration date. Who knew?
Well, we wonder what this gen Z will be wearing when they turn 35...we have a feeling it'll be Vans! Only when that happens, they will have a different group of kids making fun of them.
In Defense of Skinnies.
By "this style" this millennial is referring to early 2000s low-rise bootleg jeans. Many millennials will roll over backward to keep their skinnies in their closet (even if rolling over backward in skinny jeans is impossible). This person took a different approach.
On Twitter, she says she feels underappreciated for her generation’s work to cancel the old, bejeweled flared jeans in order to introduce skinny jeans instead. There’s no need to kill skinnies. Posting a picture of those older jeans, she feels that if gen Z knew how skinny jeans came to be, they would have to be respectful. This is also known as “bargaining.”
For some, the assault by gen Z is tedious and unrelenting. This millennial is dishing a little snark but clearly wants to stay out of the way of TikTok gen Zs and their bullying tactics (which they say they learned from millennials).
Regardless, she is keeping clear of the prickly TikTok scene. Someone else commented on the tweet with the perfect meme. It features a bunch of triumphant gen Z kids beating up on a millennial kid who is flat on his back.
