While the discussion between Millennials, people from Generation Y, born between 1981 and 1996, and baby boomers seemed to be never-ending, a new generation appeared and seems to be ruling the world.
The older generation maintained that Millennials are ruining the economy and the world in general, and was accused of being the culprit for any minor inconvenience Millennials stumble upon during the difficult period of growing up.
Yet, this new, fresher ‘generation z’ or ‘Genz’, which involves the people born from the mid-1990s to mid-2000s, is apparently making everyone feel old. Even though Millennials are not that old, as of 2019, the oldest members are 38 years of age, they are starting to feel ancient in comparison to these youngsters.
Many Millennials have recently admitted feeling 38 million years old on social media, as the members of the Generation Z members, cannot relate to a lot of items their predecessors knew and used.
Millennials were considered undisciplined and delinquent by the Generation X and the baby boomers (born from the 40s to the late 70s), the new set of people is now receiving all the aggression.
Well, they got it all ready for them to enjoy, living in an era of numerous advanced technological gadgets, machines, and devices.
Millennials lived in a time when Polaroid cameras and radio cassette players were the latest hit, and used the ridiculous circle-eared alarm clocks, and had 3 MB floppy disks, and antenna-wired monstrosities as cell phones, RGB cables, Word Perfect, and Game Boy.
On the other hand, the Generation Z babies seem to have it all from the start: smartphones, digital cameras and alarms, Plasma TVs, Word 2016, Xboxes, and external hard drives running into terabytes of storage capacity.
And even though Millennials are using all of these now, they are a bit jealous for not having them when they were kids.
They started sharing pictures of some of the objects and items from their time on Twitter, and surprisingly, many members of the younger generation had no clue what any of those things are.
Well, times have changed so much, so it is ok to feel a bit old, Millennials, as you actually are.
