Older People Take A Swipe At Millennials By Updating An Old-Timey Quote
Older People Take A Swipe At Millennials By Updating An Old-Timey Quote

It's a situation we've all been trapped in. Your eyes glaze over and you let your mind wander. Maybe you can escape through the door, or crawl out the window. Anything would be better except listening to Grandpa say, "When I was your age, we had to walk up a hill, 2 miles, in the snow, both ways, with rocks in our pockets..."

That tried and tested proverb has been used to shut down the woes and troubles of younger generations for quite some time. However, time passes and expressions will soon lose their meaning. Maybe there won't be kids walking to school in the future. Maybe there won't be any more snow. Soon Gen-X'ers will be grandparents, shaming our own grandchildren. Reddit user, r/mike_lets_talk, wanted to know what those sayings and proverbs will end up being when they asked:

What will be the Millennial generation's "I had to walk 20 miles uphill both ways in the snow to school every day"?

Back in my day, we used to all share a single phone at home.

What if I wanted call a girl I liked you say? Well I had to call her home and ask her parents to speak with her if they answered.
