Boomers are something. The younger generations find them selfish and full of useless advice and tips. They feel like the world owes them something because of all their “hard work” and supposedly what they did for our country. But, some things people believe are just around because Boomers are still alive. So what will die with boomers?
Certain Internet Sites
One Redditor wrote, “AOL. My dad still uses his AOL email.”
Another Redditor added, “Yahoo, MSN, Windows XP (still miss you, bud), Netscape, dial-up internet.”
A user replied, “Giant china cabinets with whole extra sets of plates that are used once or twice in a lifetime.”
A second user commented, “I inherited my great grandmother’s really nice china. It’s beautiful. And in a box in my office closet.”
A Redditor simply said, “Phone books.”
Another Redditor added, “Are those still around?”
A popular comment read, “I actually liked QVC, lol.”
Another comment was, “Lol. Last night’s QVC show featured two women advertising a shower gel… by washing their hands for twenty minutes straight. Talking about how good the soap felt in their hands.”
One Redditor added, “60’s sitcoms. I used to laugh my ass off at I Dream of Jeanie growing up, but watching it now? Dude, Darin’s kind of douchey. Like, a lot.”
A second Redditor replied, “All old shows suck. They literally put a laugh track to shows that didn’t have jokes. Sadists”
A user replied, “It’s so weird. I feel like our family is the only family in NA that has had a good experience with our timeshare.”
Another user added, “Except for when they are passed down to the Boomer’s kids. I know a family who keeps accruing timeshares, and they’ve already discussed which of the millennial kids get which ones. And now the kids have bought some.”
One Redditor commented, “Not just housing. Grocery bills and tuition were so much more affordable in their prime.”
A second Redditor replied, “My grandfather just told me his first house cost the same as a year of college. 15k.”
A popular comment was, “The idea that our entire lives should revolve around work.”
Another popular comment read, “This seriously baffles me. I’ve worked for two guys who lived to work. Not worked to live. How can you think about work 24/7 and just be obsessed with money…”
One Redditor replied, “Actually owning stuff and not just “subscribing” to it!”
A second Redditor wrote, “This kills me. My husband insists on buying DVDs and I love it cuz we actually own some of the stuff we like to watch.”
Wearing Suits To Work
A user added, “Suits in the workplace. Most workstations have already abolished suits, and those that still mandate suits will abolish them once the baby boomers are gone.”
One Redditor wrote, “Yeah. The only time I will ever read a newspaper is on an airplane. Occasionally I catch a glimpse of my local paper and think, “Maybe I should subscribe….”
A second Redditor added, “That’s part of the morning routine I miss. Reading the Sunday comics and then trying to get at least 1 word in the crossword puzzle!”
A user commented, “I still pay my utilities with checks because they charge a “convenience fee” of $7 for paying by card or autopay. It’s free to send a check. (Well, the cost of a stamp but that’s way less than $7).”
A second person said, “Guilty millennial…I wrote a check today.”
One sarcastic user wrote, “I can only hope I live long enough to one day witness the decline of Spectrum and Comcast. They’ll always have internet, but I think cable is their big money maker right now.”
Another user added, “God, I hope this is accurate. Cable is a scam. When we returned our box, they charged us for the next full month because they decided the billing cycle didn’t end when we returned the equipment.”
A Redditor added, “Pressure to get married before 30. Or even get married at all.”
A second Redditor wrote, “Thankfully, the younger generations are realizing it’s not worth the enormous risk, and the tax benefits are hardly reason enough to go through with that ____.”
Finally, a user responded, “Burials. I see cremations and alternate forms of treating the corpse (like growing a tree) becoming predominant because of environmental, economic or ethical reasons. I just can’t see cemeteries remaining viable.”
Redditors gave their opinion on what would eventually disappear after the Boomer Generation took their leave.
