The realization that I’m part of an older generation….

    I’m a GenX’er and it seems that there’s a disconnect between the Millenials and myself…and in some moments I feel relief that I’m approaching 40 because I remember the analog world. For example:

    The other day I was buying a hot chocolate at a coffee shop and C+C Music Factory was playing in the background. I said to the barista, “I used to have this tape.”

    She said, “What? Tape? What’s a tape? (insert long pause) Oh like in the new Marvel comic movie…bla bla bla….” (Insert the movie title that I can’t remember because I have no interest in the movies.)

    Then I said, “What? I haven’t seen that movie…I guess we’re from different generations….”

    Sometimes you have those moments when you think – “I wish someone else was standing here listening to this conversation.” The barista and I would have made them laugh at our complete lack of understanding of what the other person was talking about.
