20 Of The Most Middle-Aged Things Millennials Caught Themselves Saying

Published 3 years ago

As time goes by, many of us find it harder and harder to relate to the current generation, and before we know it, we catch ourselves saying and doing the same things our parents did when we were teens. But don’t worry – that doesn’t mean that you’ll suddenly start enjoying terrible Minions memes or that a pair of dad shoes will appear in your wardrobe out of nowhere. That just means that you’re getting older – and it can be pretty funny to catch yourself saying the same things you swore you never would when you were younger.

One Reddit user recently asked millennials to share some 0f the most middle-aged things they’ve caught themselves saying, and the answers were hilariously accurate. Check out some of the best ones in the gallery below!

“Oh no thank, you. I can’t have caffeine this late in the day or I’ll never get to sleep tonight.”

I was venting to a coworker about these noisy bastards living next to me. I actually said the words, “goddamn teenagers and their Bluetooth machines”. I stand by my admonition but man it was my greatest age leap forward since I embraced the sensible Toyota.

When my wife asked if there was anything she need to pick up at the store, and I responded: “I think we’re out of asparagus.”

Not sure what foul demon possessed me to to say those words.

My housemate: you want a drink?

Me: Nah, man. I haven’t had a drink in… six months maybe? More?

My housemate: You stopped drinking?

Me: I’m not SOBER or anything, it’s just that alcohol makes me sleepy.

Why do I get up every day and crack like a glow stick with out the glow it’s so disappointing.

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
