Poor Generation X…
The folks in that generation have barely garnered a mention anywhere lately because the only thing we usually hear about online is the never-ending battle between Millennials and their arch-nemesis, the Baby Boomers.
But we’re here to give some love to the folks born between 1961 and 1981 because they are pretty awesome.
We’ll just watch those generations fight it out as we sit on the sidelines.
What do you say Gen X’ers? Are you ready to have some laughs about your generation?
Let’s take a look!
1. Have fun and don’t get hurt.
Words to live by.
One day Generation X will be the old people, and we’ll let the kids do whatever they want: clean up the environment, switch to the metric system, legalize pot, and make their own kombucha – and never once ask them to fix our computer. Just have fun and don’t get hurt.

2. Don’t mess with us.
Or you’ll regret it!
My son just OK Boomer’d me.
Bitch I’m Gen X, I will put you in a facial recognition database and drown you in student loan debt

3. I still haven’t figured that out.
It was very complicated stuff.
Gen X: We learned to program when we were young. Unfortunately the thing we learned to program was a VCR.

5. Oh…who cares…?
It’s just the way it is.
the first rule of Gen X is who cares.

6. Bring them back!
These are the things Gen X worries about.
I’m Gen X and all I care about is when I can wear tiny backpacks again

7. Watch it burn.
From the sidelines, of course.
I'm #GenX. I just sit on the sidelines and watch the world burn. –#keenanthompson @nbcsnl pic.twitter.com/mJviUCxqfm

8. Totally left out.
Well, how about that…
Er, you forgot one, @CBSNLive. #GenX? You may remember us as the inventors of Harry Potter, podcasting and irony. pic.twitter.com/bnYu64BjQc

9. The eye roll was epic.
And the “whatever” paired with it just completed the whole thing.
I'm Gen X and our version of "Okay Boomer" was "whatever" accompanied by an eye roll. Oh man do they hate that.

10. Damn right!
If you don’t know, look it up.
You guys can call us Gen Xer's "Karen" if you want but if you understood us at all, it'd be "Heather."

11. We can handle that!
Raised by the television.
Of course Gen X would be called to save the world by sitting inside watching TV.

That’s what I’m talking about!
As a proud member of Generation X, I approve of these posts.
Okay, now we want to hear from the Gen X’ers out there.
In the comments, please share your favorite memories of growing up. It could be the music, movies, fashion, etc.!
We look forward to hearing from you!
