Boomer v Gen Z feud ramps up with damning TikTok evidence
The war continues... but we're staying out of it
The boomer vs Gen Z thing has really been put into perspective by the whole pandemic thing, amirite? What were we even arguing about in the first place?
But just for the sake of a bit of escapist distraction from our socially isolated new normal, let’s take a look at the latest development in the war of the generations.
A waitress took to TikTok with some very interesting… well, we’ll call it an observation.
As reported by Buzzfeed, a restaurant server called Kaitlyn Brande posted a video. It showed a pretty clear divide between how a group of boomers left their table when they were done eating, as compared to how a bunch of Gen Z diners left theirs. Watch the video here.
The 18-year-old commented under the video: “They get paid to do that” VS “we know restaurant life is hard, here, let us help you out” .
The boomer table was left in a total mess, while the youngsters neatly stacked their plates.
“I posted it because I thought it was ironic since older people always expect respect,” Brande told BuzzFeed.
She added: “I’m not saying I expect people to ever stack their plates like that, because hey, I'm a person too. I want to go out and eat and not worry about the dishes or anything. All I'm saying is it was cool and helpful of the younger people, and I appreciated it.”
