Recently someone asked, “What’s something you’re a total “Boomer” about, even if you’re “with the times” for most everything else?” Boy, did the Boomers give some great responses.
One Redditor said, “ Not everything needs its own app. And I’m not giving you my cell phone number at the checkout when I’m buying toothpaste at Target.”
A user who clearly isn’t a Boomer replied, “Just have a separate Gmail account for online purchases.”
A user commented, “ Car makers need to stop putting all of the car controls on touch screens. Physical knobs are simpler, cheaper, and able to be manipulated without looking at them.”
A second user said, “Also, they’re all touch screens. So you HAVE to take your eyes off the road to adjust the heat/ac, or unlock the glove box and unnecessary stuff. “
Automated Telephone Systems
A Boomer responded, “Using automated telephone systems. Just let me talk to a human being!”
Another Redditor added, “I think these also make the jobs of the eventual operators worse. Because by the time someone has got to a person, they’re usually determined and fueled by rage.”
Recording Every Aspect Of Life
One user commented, ”Filming fireworks displays… No one in history has gone back to show a friend or colleague the fireworks display you saw on July 4.”
A second Redditor added, “Yeah the cameras in concerts really bug me. How can you enjoy yourself when you gotta keep the artist in the frame the whole time? What’s even the point, I’ve never seen a video of a concert that was even halfway decent.”
Hatred of TikTok
A Boomer said, “ I refuse to deal with TikTok and find it stupid.”
A second Redditor added, “I always jokingly tell people I’m choosing the old man route and never downloading TikTok. I refuse ever to use it.”
A most liked comment read, “I have become very bitter towards the act of tipping. A simple ice latte shouldn’t have an 18% tip as the smallest amount. It takes them a wapping 2 min at most to make it.”
Another Redditor added, “I have tipped so much on coffees at coffee shops over the years bc the barista is right there and I feel like a bad person if I don’t. It’s something I always felt was good in theory but then again what I don’t like, as people are saying, is it shouldn’t feel like social pressure.”
One Redditor commented, “QR codes for menus. I understand how it helped keep COVID contamination down, but as we’ve started to “move on” from the pandemic, it just feels like a shortcut. When I dine in somewhere, I want to have a physical menu in front of me. Nowadays it feels like a lack of effort from the restaurant.”
Another responded, “I appreciate it as an optional option to have and it’s especially great if you’re trying to order dessert and you don’t want to ask for a menu, but yeah, physical menus should be the primary thing.”
Boomers agreed that “These new names are absolutely awful. Yes, I agree that there are too many Johns & Sarahs, but there are plenty of other strong names across all cultures and languages that already exist. We don’t need you to make up a new word. And please stop spelling traditional names differently. It’s not cute or unique.”
Kids and Technology
Many Redditors agreed that “I think we are giving technology to kids at way too young of an age, and it’s seriously going to mess with their brain chemistry. Probably their eyesight, too. Also, I heard people trying to do away with learning cursive, which pi**ses me off.”
24 Hour Joints
One Boomer said, “I miss when stores and fast food joints were open 24 hours.”
A second user commented, “I used to live in a town that was basically 24 hours and COVID really sealed its fate. Used to be you could shop at a Walmart, eat a burger and wash your clothes at 2 in the morning. Now, most shops close by 7 pm (if not sooner due to staffing or supply chain issues).”
There you have it. The Boomers of Reddit sure found a lot of things to dislike about our current times and society. If you are a Boomer what is something you don’t like even if you feel like your “with the times?”
