Poor Generation X’ers.
They seem pretty much left behind right now as Millennials and Boomers soak up all the attention in the world, don’t they?
Well, not anymore! Not on my watch!
Let’s get into some tweets so we can see how our Generation X friends are feeling right about now.
1. Poor Pitbull…
Of all the generations, Gen X has the coolest name, but is the least important one, and now I know how Pitbull feels.

2. Just sit back and watch.
Sitting there laughing at a war between Millennials and Boomers is a perfect Gen X pastime.

3. Off to the wayside.
Gen X being completely ignored and overlooked in the Boomers vs. Millennials battle might actually be the most Gen X thing to ever happen to us.

4. Ouch. Take it easy…
My son just OK Boomer’d me.
bit*h I’m Gen X, I will put you in a facial recognition database and drown you in student loan debt

5. You did what you had to do.
Being Gen X, I was obligated to date and break up with several women named Jennifer.

6. We can’t even talk about it anymore?
The first rule of gen x is you do not talk about gen x.

7. Really dating yourself here.
I love dating Gen X people cos they got that old book smell.

8. Not looking good on either side.
Boomer: And another thing, you also ruined–
Millennial: Uh. OK Boomer!
Gen. X: Oh, God. I'm bookended by lameness.

9. Here’s some real talk.
MY DAUGHTER: OK, GenX.
[I pull the car over to the curb]
ME: Listen Zoomer, as long as the Millennials and the Boomers are at war, we have a truce. But make no mistake, GenX is nihilistic af and if you step to us we will let you drown in student loan debt.

10. It was good while it lasted.
Gen X: We learned to program when we were young. Unfortunately the thing we learned to program was a VCR.

12. What’s happening to our world?
Boomers: Watched Gilligan’s Island.
Gen X: Watched Gilligan’s Island in syndication in the afternoon at our babysitter’s.
Millennials: “Gilligan’s Island is racist.”
Gen Z: *shares nude pix in sailor hat on Kik with neckbeard posing as Chad, has never heard of Gilligan’s Island*

13. And there you have it…
As a GenXer I am uniquely qualified to be an expert on GenX. The core value of my generation is hostility. To your favorite bands, your mom, your politics, and definitely those shoes.

Keep your heads up, Gen X’ers!
We’re out here and we’re listening to you! …at least some of the time…
