Twitter Thread: People Show Their Age With Things Young People Wouldn't Get

Sooner or later, everyone becomes a relic of a bygone era. There's a moment we all have when some new way to play a movie comes out, and we remember the now-obsolete technology when it was new. It happened with VHS tapes and it will somehow happen with all-digital content. It's sort of exciting and sort of scary, but to make ourselves feel safer at the end of the day we can always indulge in powerful images of sensory nostalgia.

Wholesome Senior Mistakes Man For Taxi Driver, Cheery Ride Ensues

It's quick and uplifting stories like the one we have here that manage to temporarily restore our otherwise dwindling faith in humanity. Sometimes life presents you with the kind of curveball that basically asks what you're going to do about it? If it's a case of someone just being plain old nasty, you might have to assume the defensive stance. But, if it's a happy senior who is clearly innocently confused, you might just err on the side of being a kind human. A kind human like the one we have here. 

A cheery senior thinks that a guy is a taxi driver, and then a wholesome ride ensues.

Old People Trying Their Best On Social Media

It would be admittedly hard to learn a totally new user interface after the age of 50. But that doesn't stop old people from wrangling with social media, posting their passwords, printing out poorly cropped Instagram posts and responding to cake recipes as if they were a neighbor. Can we really blame a group of people who already had adult children before they ever heard of AOL? From the wholesome to the absurd, here are old people on social media doing their best.

Unsafe Toys People Remember From The Olden Days

Anyone with a few decades on them can remember a time when toys were heavy, sharp, fast, toxic and scalding. Whether it was a playground slide that would sear the flesh off your palms or a chemistry set that could have made biker crank, people had a different idea of what was considered safe for children. People remember the wildly dangerous activities they participated in as children.

Old people are trying their best on social media, but some are still trying to get the hang of it.

The Moment People Realized They Were Old

Feeling old is a new prospect for many of us. We tend to feel like ourselves most of the time, and it takes an outside reminder to help show that maybe we're not spring chickens anymore.

To feel a little younger, here are some things that are older than people think.

Ridiculous Moments of Tech Illiteracy

Sure, we're not all geniuses with computers. But at this point in time, when computers have been a necessity for most households and workplaces for a few decades, it's a little ridiculous when someone doesn't know that you can't print a clickable link. Tech support gets some ridiculous requests, and some of them are even mean, like this Karen who had her bluff called and had her website deleted.

But hey, these old people on social media are doing their best.

Old People On Social Media Doing Their Best

Technology is a constant source of fear and anxiety for old people. They have a hard time learning how to use it, and so will you when you get old. When we're trying to beam 40 year old memes into each other's brains via the super-internet, we'll probably make some similar mistakes like direct messaging google or leaving a wildly inappropriate comment on the wrong post.

Baby Boomers Issues That They Blamed On Their Older Generation

Someone on AskReddit asked for Baby Boomers to share the issues that existed while they were young, that made them think the older generation were a bunch of idiots. Things like adults resisting the use of seat belts, and assuming that all credit cards were terrible because of being so against any kind of debt, serve as solid examples. Maybe every younger generation is just bound to have a bone to pick with their older generation.
