Millennials, hold tight to your avocado toast because Gen Z and Baby Boomers aren’t holding back! They’re giving some iconic trends the side-eye and a sassy smirk. So, let’s take a look at the 11 millennial trends Gen Z and Boomers agree need to disappear right now.
The green, mushy delight that won millennial hearts worldwide. But Gen Z are over it. And Boomers ask, “Is it breakfast? Is it lunch? Make up your mind!” While millennials fork over $10 a pop, Gen Z would rather spend their dollars on something that doesn’t turn brown after 5 minutes.
A slide next to the staircase and a ping pong table in the meeting room? Millennials find it cool, but Boomers are outraged. Work is work, have fun on your own time. Even Gen Z raise an eyebrow. They’d trade quirky office perks for job stability and a solid 401(k) any day.
Too Much Reality TV
For millennials, reality tv is a guilty pleasure, but with Boomers and Gen Z? Not so much. They want real, unscripted content, not the staged “reality” that’s often served up on TV.
Always being connected
While constant online connectivity is the norm, Boomers prefer to stay off the grid. Even Gen Z is choosing to step back. Both generations find being always online tiring and are creating moments to disconnect and enjoy life offline. It turns out, there’s a whole world to discover when you look up from your phone!
Fear Of Missing Out
Gen Z prefers the Joy of Missing Out (JOMO) over the Fear of Missing Out (FOMO). They value taking a break and enjoying downtime, making “less is more” their way of life. Boomers? Well they’re just laughing at you for not being able to enjoy your time alone.
Man buns had their moment of glory, but Boomers are calling it – this hairstyle’s expiration date has arrived. Nothing against long locks, but when every single guy is sporting a bun, the charm kind of fizzles out.
#Too #Many #Hashtags. Millennials turned social media posts into a garden of hashtags, blooming everywhere. Gen Z is pruning back, opting for a cleaner, less cluttered digital space and Boomers have no interest in jumping on this train.
Too Many Clothes
Loving nothing better than mountains of bargain clothing, Millennials are the opposite of Gen Z, who are all about that sustainable life . They’re ditching the mountains of cheap clothing for quality pieces that won’t fall apart after one wash and Boomers understand the value of keeping to a few staple pieces.
Millennials Are Obsessed With Inspirational Quotes
Millennials have a thing for plastering inspirational quotes everywhere. Boomers are fed up. If you want to get something done, get it done. Gen Z’s take? Not everything needs to be a deep, life-altering revelation. Sometimes, a cup of coffee is just a cup of coffee.
Snapchat’s dog ears and flower crowns are all the rage among millennials. However both Boomers and Gen Z aren’t fans. They prefer showing their real faces without the constant virtual makeovers.
Mason Jar Meals
Mason jars filled with salads and overnight oats became the epitome of millennial cuisine. While they may be Instagram-worthy, Gen Z gravitates towards simplicity and asking, “ever heard of a plate?” Boomers just don’t understand this trend. What’s wrong with foil or tupper ware?
There’s no denying that Millennials have fallen for some pretty questionable gadgets, much to the amusement of the Boomer generation. In this post, we’re diving into 17 gadgets Millennials bought into that made boomers laugh.
