If there’s one thing that can be said about the people of Generation X, it’s that they are pretty misunderstood.
The Baby Boomers think they’re lazy. The Millennials think they’re losers. They can’t win!
But we’re here to let them sound off on Twitter because they deserve to be heard!
Here are some funny tweets about that very unique generation.
1. Ready for this.
Everyone: wow this is bad
Gen X, apparently: HAHA I WAS BORN WITH MY HOUSE KEY AROUND MY NECK ON A SHOELACE AND STARTED SOCIAL DISTANCING AS AN INFANT WHEN MY DIVORCED PARENTS SLID FRUIT LEATHER UNDER MY DOOR BEFORE GOING TO WORK AND THIS WAS MY ONLY COMPANION I FEEL FINE pic.twitter.com/cu55BiKufy

2. I’ll be in front of the tube.
Of course Gen X would be called to save the world by sitting inside watching TV.

4. Not how you pictured it.
I'm GenX. I grew up braced for apocalypse.
Never thought it would involve knocking together pizza dough in my jammies while listening to podcasts, however.

6. Nothing new.
Glad I’m a #GenX kid. Im using my skills I picked up as a latchkey kid. Making toaster oven snacks, chillin on the couch. Now if I can find some episodes of Gilligan’s Island, Bewitched, and I Dream of Jeannie I’m set. pic.twitter.com/9FGCs1Cttt

7. Do nothing for days.
I am #GenX. I have the patience of Job. I sat for hours just waiting for my favorite song to play on the radio so I could hit record on my cassette player only to have the DJ talk over it so I’d have to wait even longer to try again. I can do nothing for days and be ok.

8. Had it all figured out.
No one is better at sitting on their asses doing nothing than the #GenX. This is how we used to rewind, also no shuffle. pic.twitter.com/ugYXEBDtOV

10. This is pretty catchy.
A hand washing song for GenX:
Don’t touch me please
I cannot stand the way you sneeze
I love you but you got to know
That I have to wash my hands and go

11. The Cure to everything.
Never has there been a generation better equipped to self isolate and social distance. #GenX pic.twitter.com/37bYdRfcnt

13. If you know, you know.
You guys can call us Gen Xer's "Karen" if you want but if you understood us at all, it'd be "Heather."

You gotta love those Gen X’ers!
Are you a member of Generation X? If so, do you think you’ve been given a raw deal and you get mocked WAYYYYY too much?
