    This OK boomer thing is weird. It's the boomers mostly responsible for raising snowflakes. Boomers raised their kids totally opposite of the way they were raised (going to all their events, being too afraid to let kids have any unsupervised activities, personally fighting for their grades with teachers, etc). Boomers have made their lives so cushy. So why do the ensuing generations hate boomers, who have made them feel so special every day of their lives? Boomers may be smart in business, but they are the ones who turned ensuing generations into spoiled entitled people.

    It's a weird fight ... it's the Boomers fault there are so many snowflakes cause they raised their kids in the age of praise praise praise, protect protect protect (give em a trophy). So Boomers created the lazy entitled generation. Meanwhile, the Millenials and next generation dont understand how coddled they've been so instead of being happy at their entitlement for 22 years, they just say, "OK Boomer." Boomers should be mad at their kids over this but they don't get mad at their kids ... ever.

    You don't agree? My premise is outstanding IMO.

    Thankfully I have the playground monitor to keep me in line. You're doing God's work, Alma, but you know that.

    No. Boomers raised my generation -- X -- and we were NOT praise praise praised whatsoever. In fact we were ignored by and large. It's my generation -- X -- that gave birth to and raised the snowflakes and praise praise praised them and felt the need to give every last one of them trophies and all that jazz. And in return we get called Karen lol.

    Yeah, I’m the poster telling people how stupid they are.

    Just for argument’s sake, let’s say I am the playground monitor. Who are you in this situation? The bully who throws sand in the face of the weird kid because he’s weird? Who cares what 3rd person Frederick thinks?
