A lot has changed since the Boomer generation managed to start their giant families in the house they owned with no college debt. Now Jeff Bezos sells all the books and instead of children, we have rescue dogs. There’s some debate over what has caused this: full economic collapse in a pandemic or entitled millennials eating too much avocado toast? Who can say!
As usual, the younger folks are coping with the nightmarish situation around them by making memes.
The Me At Age 29 meme compares where people’s folks were at their age, versus where they currently are.
The comparison is pretty bleak. Instead of a 401k, we have Bagel Bites. Instead of getting married, we’re not even meeting up for a first Tinder date.
