"Boomer Opinions" That Most Generations Seem To Agree With (19 GIFS)

“People share way too much on social media. You don’t need to record every second of your life. Live in the moment every once in a while.”

 

“Screw touchscreens. I want physical buttons…especially in the car when I don’t want to take my eyes off the road. Physical buttons are more accessible for people with disabilities, and they’re just generally more satisfying to push.”

“Instant communication at work. You can Slack me, email me, call me, text me after hours, and I will respond at 8 a.m….when I log in. Thirty years ago, we did not have access to our employees after hours. And now that we do, it should not be expected.”

 

“I will never own an e-reader. I understand why it’s convenient to have because you can carry a bunch of books with you at all times, but nothing compares to a real paper book. I especially love secondhand books because they’re pre-loved and you can tell someone really enjoyed the book if it’s a little bent and beat up. It makes me want to read it more.”

“I just want to speak to a real person on the telephone when I have to call a business.”

 

“I hate going to concerts and seeing everyone with their phones up, video-recording the whole thing. What’s the point in paying for a concert ticket if you’re not going to dance or actually enjoy it?”

 

“Children are being brainwashed by TikTok and Instagram in the sense that they can’t focus on anything for more than a few seconds at a time. And I feel that social media is making them majorly desensitized to things.”

 

“Music in bars is too loud! I want to find just one bar where I can talk to my friends without screaming.”

 

“I like CDs better than digital music. I just think they sound better, and they’re way easier to play in my car than having to screw around with an aux cord or bluetooth connection.”

 

“You should really put your phone down when you’re out to eat with people. Maybe it’s because I grew up with that rule, but I know when I’m getting lunch with a friend or something, I find it incredibly irritating when they’re on their phone.”

 

“Young children are genuinely spending way too much time on tablets and other devices.”

 

“Picking out a video at the store was better than looking through Netflix for something to watch.”

 

 “Paper menus are far superior to QR codes. Half of the time, the menu won’t even load. Good god.”

 

“Tell me, why would anyone really want a smart fridge or toaster? I don’t want the new, shiny thing. I want something that works and lasts a long time.”

 

“Just because you can contact me immediately by phone and text doesn’t mean I should be expected to respond right away and be constantly accessible. I miss the days when you just turned on the answering machine and lived your life.”

 

“It’s sad to me that many people don’t have friendships with or even know their neighbors these days.”

 

“Quit being so loud when you’re in public. Be respectful of others around you. Don’t talk loudly on your phone or play games with the sound on. Don’t use speakerphone. Don’t play music without earbuds. Don’t blast your music in a vehicle if you are in a residential area. If you want to listen to loud music, invest in headphones.”

 

“Kids need to be raised to be as self-reliant as possible. They should learn all household chores to the best of their ability — including yard work, cooking, use of power tools, and car maintenance.”

 

“I don’t understand the core benefit of ‘read’ or ‘seen’ in messaging apps. Fundamentally, it just seems to create an unhealthy scenario that puts pressure on the receiver and unhealthy expectations from the texted.”

#9 the joke is on you, because CD is digital music

#19 the reason of read/seen is to be sure that there is no connection error, which is quite common especially on mobile net.

Dalton,

#9 Agreed, but if the digital music has been compressed, it won’t sound as good.

#4 I used to think the same, but did get a Kindle. It took a while to get over the feeling that I was working with "a device", but I persevered and now I don't even notice it - I just get lost in the words and stories of a hundred thousand books.

#2 This is a serious issue, imo. With analog buttons, you could feel that you were touching them, and barely had to glance, but with touchscreens, you have to take your eyes off the road to make sure your hitting the right spot on the screen. It's almost as dangerous as texting.

#4 I felt the same way until I started reading on an IPad. I can adjust the font type, font size, and screen brightness to suit my needs. I would prefer to read a real book but my IPad makes it easier and a nicer experience.

Most of these are spot on and do a good job of emphasizing how pathetic society nowdays is becoming.

#3 Umm cell phones existed 30 years ago, as well as fax, pagers, and paper messengers. The reason work never called was because they RESPECTED personal time.

#7 Bullsh#t. People have said that about any new media. 100 years ago they argued about using paper rather than chalkboards, or television over radio, computers over books, clockwork toys over carved wooden ones.
