‘She recorded herself crying’: Gen X Share Their Thoughts on Gen Z in Entertaining Thread

‘She recorded herself crying’: Gen X Share Their Thoughts on Gen Z in Entertaining Thread

I grew up in the '80s and '90s, and life back then was… simpler. Technology didn't rule every aspect of our existence, and social media was just a sci-fi dream. Gen Z on the other hand… Well, they're practically being raised by their smartphones. I definitely admire their spirit to talk back, stand up for themselves, and change social norms, but they're also showing serious signs of communication issues, are overly sensitive, and have the attention span of a goldfish. Plus, they document everyt…

'I forced them to cancel my subscription': Customer returns albums filled with cement to get back at record store that locked them into 36 month rolling contract

One record store was no match for a clever young customer who refused to accept that the store tried forcing him into a 36-month contract. This story took place back in the 1980s when OP was 16. OP signed up to a record club where he received free albums upon signing up, followed by three albums each month that had to be paid for within 30 days. Otherwise, he would have to pay interest. At first, OP was happy, but slowly the quality of the albums he was receiving began to decline. Soon, OP was…

'My grandparents reminded the neighbor that they had a deal': Man tells neighbors he'll sue if they renovate their home

'My grandparents reminded the neighbor that they had a deal': Outraged dude tells neighbor he will sue if they renovate their home

This guy felt oddly entitled to his next door neighbor's home . There are a million neighbor feuds for this very reason: you can't really tell other people how to run their lives. Sure, you can try to cajole your neighbor to take down her Christmas lights now that it's April, or maybe you can talk a different neighbor into taking down the floodlights that blind you while you try to sleep at night. But it doesn't always go as planned, and in this guy's case, his neighbors retaliated against him…

'Remember having pen pals?': Gen Xers weigh in on the things that make their generation stand out

Each generation has things that make them unique, and collective memories that bring them all together. That's especially true for people who were born between the 1960s and 1980s, who spent a lot of time together playing outside and exploring the world by bicycle. U/Ruffffian asked the latchkey generation about the things that define them, and people had some excellent answers. Some people wrote in about the fashion trends of the time, like poofy hairdos teased to perfection and sprayed with a…

'Phil Collins sang like every fourth song on the radio': 30 Memes that only Gen Xers will understand

Gen X , these memes are just for you. You're in the baby bust generation, sometimes called the MTV generation , of people who were born between the years of 1965-1980. Your boomer parents probably raised you to be independent and take care of yourself in life, allowing you to spend all day outside with your friends. You came home when the sun set — no helicopter parenting for your generation! Now that Gen Xers are in their late 30s to 50s, they're becoming parents and grandparents themselves. T…

30 Memes that '70s and '80s kids will remember from way back when

Gen X grew up spending their days outdoors. They also had a lot of cool tech back then, like cassette tapes , that just aren't popular anymore. Now that music is on everyone's phones and computers, no one needs a separate device made just for music. That's certainly something that many of us look back on wistfully. Playgrounds are another of those Gen X legends that almost seem too crazy to be true. Photos of the playgrounds from back them make them seem dangerous! Playgrounds just get safer an…
