Today, baby boomers love to complain about millennials, just like the Silent Generation complained about them. But, they might not know that millennials also like to complain about them! Every generation has its differences and lives their lives in a very unique way, so they must learn to live together.
For instance, there are plenty of things that baby boomers love that millennials hate. From playing indoor sports to watching 24-hour news channels, many baby boomers believe they know best. However, most people under 40 wouldn’t think of going anywhere near these things! Let’s take a look at the things that only baby boomers think are cool…
1. “Precious” Diamonds
The old saying goes: diamonds are a girl’s best friend. Of course, that only applies if you’re wealthy enough to afford them! Still, baby boomers became sold on the idea that expensive diamonds are the best type of jewelry! We’re sorry to break it to you, but diamonds are incredibly overrated.
Believe it or not, diamonds are actually quite common and easier to find that other precious gems. Still, the high demand increases their price as they’re slowly released to the market. So, they become wildly expensive. Even worse, sometimes large diamonds don’t make the cut because of small imperfections in color, cut, or clarity. So, all we say is to baby boomers is please, stop buying diamonds!
