Global warming is barely a big deal at all compared to the trajectory we used to be on. We'll have to do a lot of environmental engineering projects along certain shorelines and it will be a little warmer and wetter in some places, big fucking deal.

On the plus side, you should be able to find a few other boomers willing to pay $infinite for that Shelby (unless it's a modern one, and even then they still fetch a lot).

Swap Logan's for Outback and that's my parents. They also exclusively eat frozen meals at home now

My parents have a two story house in the middle of nowhere and have mobility issues, so they remodeled the entire first floor. Now you'd think that with mobility issues they would have added a room for bedroom purposes, nope, there's an "office" which is maybe 4 feet wide, and half as long as the house, which is just a junk room. The first floor is nice, but it now has the fanciest shower in the house for washing the dogs, and the entire second floor now looks dated as hell since it hasn't been updated since it was built in probably 1994.

Saying some variation of "Now I know you *think* you know what you're doing, but I've been doing this job for 30 years and I know better" even when they're dumb as hell and have only kept that job for so long because their brother is the regional manager and keeps covering when they gently caress up.

-Always watching tv in standard def and somehow not noticing it looks like poo poo.

-Calling young people lazy even though most of my generation is working two or three jobs to even loving live.

-Complaining about people on welfare and food stamps, talking about how easy they have it, and saying that these programs should no longer exist because everyone on them is just abusing it.
