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.”

Kinda scared to ask but... boomers v Gen Z: who has better dining-out manners?!

  • There are always two kind of people- let’s forget the group that left the place like a mess - I worked long time a a waitress- I still think of them a a coworker and try to help - some of the youngsters maybe do the same. Some youngsters I met, where like the older ones: I pay with my money to leave everything. Maybe they never really worked...hope, that they don’t have to learn in the future.

  • Well not all boomers do that though. Some of them are nice like my dad.

  • That’s interesting, in our place fast food places and food courts also have cleaners and servers but I still drop my trays at the counter. However this was pretty cool.
