15 Tweets From Millennials And Gen X'ers Who Are Starting To Feel Really, Really, Really Old

*Cracks back.* As a millennial inching further up in age, I've had more than one time when my Gen Z sister made me feel old. She doesn't remember picking movies out from Blockbuster, she's fascinated by vinyl, and she just called yesterday to ask what a 401(k) is. Am I officially an elder? Help.

And I'm not alone. Millennials across the internet are being hit with day-to-day moments that make them remember how fast time can move. So here are some of my favorite laugh-so-you-don't-cry jokes from those of us who are gettin' up there:


I am in Target. I am trying to buy a photo album. I asked where they might be. Worker did not know what a photo album was. I said it was a place to keep pictures. He sent me to the tech aisle. He assumed I wanted memory to store more pictures on my phone. I am 1 billion years old

Hello. All of the actors from Friends are now older than the youngest Golden Girl was in that show’s first season. Have a nice day.

We memorized phone numbers. We memorized driving directions. No one knew what we looked like. No one could reach us. We were gods.

I regret to inform you that my brain will think it's the year 2000 until the day I die. When is 30 years ago? 1970. How long ago were the '90s? 10 years ago. thank you for your understanding in this matter.

If you want to know why Gen X’ers are always mad it’s because we had to replace our record collections with a tape collection that was then replaced with a cd collection that was then replaced with MP3’s and damn it how many time must I pay to listen to grunge
