ATTENTION BOOMERS: Millennials Aren’t The Problem You Think We Are (Right Now)

Something we’ve been hearing a lot in the news recently is that millennial don’t care about what’s happening with the global pandemic and that all we want to do is go on spring break and travel the world.

You can find article after article about how “millennial’s are ruining it for all of us!”

But what a lot of these articles, and the general media tend to overlook is the one simple fact that these are NOT millennials.

The millennial age group is considered to be people born between 1980 and 1996, are heading into, if not well into, our 30’s. We are not the ones going out to clubs are heading down to Florida for spring break like Representative Pete King would like you to think.

Nope, the blame you are wrongly directing towards millennials should really be going to the rambunctious bunch of kids known as Gen Z

So here are some wonderful responses from millennials themselves, for all these boomers who think we’re out there partying right now:

A lot of this we can’t believe needs to be said:

We are at home hanging out with our anxiety issues:

So don’t for one second think we are going on spring break with all these gen z’ers that is definitely not us. We are too damn old.

Sometimes I feel like Squidward, getting all the blame for Spongebobs antics while I’m doing what I’m supposed to be doing.

We are getting close to our 40’s remember that:

“MILLENNIALS ARE APPROACHING 40. MILLENNIALS HAVE MORTGAGES. MILLENNIALS ARE GOING BALD. MILLENNIALS LIVED THROUGH RAP METAL AND YET HATE THE RADIO NOW. MILLENNIALS WILL LEAVE A BAR IF IT IS TOO LOUD. PLEASE STOP SAYING “MILLENNIAL” WHEN YOU MEAN “TWENTYSOMETHINGS” ” – @morninggloria 

 

“People talk about all young people as “millennials” but the oldest millennials are basically 40.

Most millennials are 30-somethings staying at home making Alison Roman’s shallot pasta, trying to reason with their Boomer parents and freaking out about the Gen Zers on the beach” – @CharlotteAlter

“the millennials I know are in their mid-thirties, at home, and frantically taking their temperature every time they sneeze, I don’t think we’re the main generation partying for spring break.” – @AlishaRai

Honestly, we’re the ones yelling at our parents right now:

All we want to do is eat pasta:

We’re indoors playing animal crossing and multi tasking:

“Millennials aren’t on Spring Break, they’re playing Animal Crossing on mute during Zoom meetings while searching for home office furniture in another tab, and they’d really like their Student Loans cancelled” – @princessology

We’re not partying, we have kids:

We’re not popping bottles, we have mortgages to pay good sir:

“millennials” became the word used to describe young arrogant shitheads and now i, a grown woman with a mortgage and back issues, am getting blamed for spreading COVID-19 on spring break – @gabbihanna

So say it with me now, and don’t forget:

the average millennial is 33 years old.
the average millennial is 33 years old.
the average millennial is 33 years old.
the average millennial is 33 years old.
the average millennial is 33 years old.

So no, we aren’t the young kids that need to “grow up” as the media and boomers want to tell us. We aren’t the ones still travelling the world on airplanes and public transport. No, we are at home just as worried as you. We are indoors reading stories like this:
