Dear baby boomers, we have to say sorry before you read on, but there are just some things that you find cool that no longer have that status. It was good while it lasted, but we are here to help you move on to bigger and better things. Some of these might shock you, so get in a comfy seat before you start reading. Here’s a list of what it’s time to ditch:
Yeah, we are talking about the array of beautiful dishes you have in the original boxes still or displayed in a glass case around your home. Let’s be honest, don’t you think it takes up space that you need? You don’t really use it; it’s collecting dust, and will you ever use it? China is one of those things you have and completely forget you own until one breaks one day. Even then, you'd still be mad that it broke.
Home Shopping Channels
Physically going to the store is such a hassle, we know, but that’s the beauty of online shopping! Right from your computer or smartphone, you can click anything you want and have it at your door in less than a week. There is no need to rely on someone on tv talking about the same product for an hour straight! It may look better on camera, but it is actually cheaply made. Plus, you don’t have room to acquire more unnecessary products. You’re better off making the trip to the mall and actually seeing what you’ll get or reading reviews of what other people thought online.
“I’m paying you for such an incredible experience!” Thanks, but no thanks. How will this experience help pay for the gas that will get me here daily? Yes, an intern will learn a lot from the role, but they have to eat dinner too. A small hourly pay would make them feel more appreciated and motivated to give you quality work worth your time and money.
Giving Retail Workers a Hard Time
There is no reason to get worked up by a teen behind a register because you had a bad day. It’s not their fault that your coupon can’t be honored, and don’t even think about bugging them to get a manager. Chances are you’ll look silly in the end, walking out with no discount. Also, you remember your first jobs! It wasn’t always easy, so take it easy on the workers who are keeping the stores up and running.
Yes, it is very official, and your kitten with bows design is fancy and all, but close the checkbook, please. Especially in a store, there is no reason to hold up the entire line. We now have fast and easy credit and debit cards, which you can swipe or tap and then go.
Sending Texts in All CAPS
We have all read a book where we saw the line “AAAHHHHHH.” Didn’t you feel like that character was screaming? That’s how we feel if you text us in all capital letters. Please don’t yell at us.
Fuzzy Toilet Seat Covers
We cannot believe this is still a thing! Think about the germs on these covers. After the gym, a sweaty tush is not something you’d like to touch, so why make everyone touch it for weeks on end?! This fabric will also hold odor, which we commonly find in a bathroom… bye bye, fuzzy, dirty toilet covers.
Cop Drama TV Shows
Haven’t you had enough soap operas? The last thing you need is another cop/ detective show to binge-watch, and of course, the crime is always solved at the end of each episode. Move along to a better tv option.
Although it is very pretty on paper, writing in cursive is becoming outdated. It has slowly become less taught in schools and is seen as a waste of time when kids can be learning other subjects. Also, it is sometimes tricky to read cursive from different people, so let’s just stick to writing in block letters.
