Have you ever heard of the term “Karen”? Let me tell you; it’s not exactly a term of endearment. But don’t worry, we Gen Xers have been called worse things, and we just brush it off like it’s nothing. We’ve developed a thick skin from all the insults thrown our way. But the Boomers, well, they seem to be having a tough time with it. I mean, have you seen the way they react to being called a Karen?
Young people are going to have to find a more potent way to insult their elders if they want to get a rise out of us Gen Xers. We’ve been through the grunge era, the dot-com boom and bust, and we even survived Y2K. As for the Boomers, well, they might need a little extra TLC to deal with the Karen label. But hey, they raised us, so we owe them a little bit of kindness, right?
