I feel like we passed the point a while ago where the term “millennial” just became synonymous with “bummer.”
The boomers called us lazy, the Gen Xers tried to be supportive but got confused, and now Gen Z is sitting on Twitter picking apart every prosaic and mundane facet of Millennial existence to drag through the mud.
But for all that, I gotta admit…they’re not wrong.
10. Like a boss
And yet it never quite happens.
millennials love reading books titled How To Stop Giving A Sh*t And Start Being A F*cking Boss

9. Who lives in a White House?
Recent events have allowed me to rewatch West Wing with a feeling of general disappointment rather than nauseated despair, so that’s something.
millennials love to keep referencing SpongeBob like bro you're 30 go watch west wing

8. Can’t react
millennials love using reaction gifs lmao

7. Serious business
We’re all still playing grown up games because we know we’ll never actually get there.
Millennials love referring to a customer as “client”. A dash of fabricated importance goes a long way.

6. Get woke
I mean, it’s a decent first step.
Millennials love to act like they are woke critical thinkers just because they don’t watch Fox or CNN

5. Tick tock, tick tock
We know what it is, we just don’t understand it.
millennials love the opportunity to talk about how they don’t know what tik tok is to make themselves feel like an adult

4. Spread the love
I mean yeah man, that’s the internet.
Millennials love reposting TikToks on Instagram.

3. Carb up
Please just allow me this bright spot of happiness, I ask for so little.
why are millennials so obsessed with pasta and pizza like sure they slap but you’re allowed to have other personality traits

2. Paws for reflection
For the record I’ve never been on board with this.
Yuppie millennials love to make their dogs instagrams and write captions like the dog is doing the damn typing.

1. What a twist!
You fools, you’ve fallen right into our trap!
Plot twist: all the “gen z” dragging millennials on twitter are in fact millennials dragging themselves because we know how much millennials love self-deprecation

Maybe we should just do a rebranding. Some people call us Generation Y, and that seems to confuse folks enough that maybe it’ll just help us blend in. Let’s become the New Coke of ourselves. Nothing else has worked.
What’s the best or worst thing about your generation?
