This is an exacerbated response to the relentless gen Z TikTok digs about wearing a side part.
This tweet, by someone who describes themselves as an elder millennial, proclaims that wearing a middle part would make them look really old, as old as the founders of the nation. You see what they did here? Middle parts are the oldest and therefore least cool. Ha!
TikTok Likes to Trigger Old People
One thing about gen Z is they like to be funny, and they think it is a lot of fun to trigger people. It’s over-the-line when it comes to consuming a detergent pod but wearing an iPod shuffle as a hair clip is a safe way to give a millennial a heart attack.
When it first came out on social media that the younger generation was calling the device “vintage” and making so-called better use of it, people responded like this guy. “When did I get so old?”
Noun or Verb
This is a clear reminder that gen Z's are quite young on the internet timeline. A trend that did not exist until the ‘90s was using nouns as verbs. It dates "all the way back" to the original LOL cat memes.
LOL cats were the first truly engaging phenomena that kids came across on the prehistoric world wide web, colloquially called “The Net.”
Zzzzzz. Not Impressed
Here is a gen Z tweeting about millennial obsolescence. Gen Z never had a VHS tape or a cassette tape but they still know what they are. It's just that they do not care. These items are rubbish that are of no use to anyone in their opinion!
Well, it sucks for them because they'll never experience the strange wonder of rewinding a VHS tape.
A Self-Loathing Gen Z
There is that in-between area that some have commented about, feeling one way but technically falling in the age category of the other. The online rivalry has forced people to choose sides.
This person detests any association with millennials. But unfortunately, he falls into the generational category bracket of millennials. It’s hell getting old, and we are all going to learn that lesson if we haven’t already.
