- PSA – ‘OK boomer’
If they haven’t already, your kids might soon be using this
annoying playgroundismessential super-edgy meme on you as a response to anything that you say do or think.
‘But I’m a xoomer’
‘Wait, isn’t that just a cowardly way for you to say ‘whatever, talk to the hand, old person. You’re opinion is invalid because you’re an old person and I hereforth dismiss you’?
Go on, have a sherry.Posted 2 months agotomhowardSubscriber
Isn’t it in response to the type of Older person that won’t listen to what the youth are saying, despite overwhelming evidence showing them to be correct, because they are ‘millennials’ Who can’t buy a house, not because the baby boomers have screwed the economy/housing market, but because of avocado on toast.

Zoomers. OK, boomer? 😉
I think the safe option is to drink sherry and mumble insanely into a mustard-coloured cardigan. Otherwise:

As in baby boomer?
Has that not been around for 20 years or more?
Edit: Wow a lot more
Back in 1963, when the term “baby-boomer” was first published in a Salt Lake Tribune article, it carried just one definition: a person born during the tail end or in the decade after World War II, when the United States saw a tremendous spike in births. Frequently shortened to “boomer,” over the years the phrase has been imbued with layers of meaning and implication. Much like “millennial,” “boomer” doesn’t merely indicate a person born in a given time or place, it’s a blanket term referencing the predominant trends, values and concerns of an entire generation.Posted 2 months agocolournoiseSubscriber
Why can’t I and my fellow generation X’s have some abuse? Bloody Gammon Boomers and Millennials hogging it all.
Because, according to Wikipedia at least, we have won…

1958 was in the 1950s.
Currently, five generations make up our society. Each of those five generations has an active role in the marketplace. Depending on the specific workplace, the workforce includes four to five generations. Here are the birth years for each generation:
- Gen Z, iGen, or Centennials: Born 1996 – TBD
- Millennials or Gen Y: Born 1977 – 1995
- Generation X: Born 1965 – 1976
- Baby Boomers: Born 1946 – 1964
- Traditionalists or Silent Generation: Born 1945 and before
Oops read that as you are 61 but you’re still a boomer.Posted 2 months agotimidwheelerSubscriber
I’m sure under previous nomenclature I was Gen X. I seem to have been redesignated a millennial.
Who do I complain to, who actually is the awarding body?
Edit – sorry I had to go back and put the apostrophe in the hashtag.
I really don’t feel like a millennial.Posted 2 months ago
