Boomers are growing up in an era free of things like social media platforms. They used to spend their whole day with their friends living nearby. Therefore, witnessing individuals making friends virtually on different social media platforms is hilarious for the boomers.

People pay a huge amount to buy unique pieces of abstract art. According to these people, only a few people can understand the value of modern art. However, boomers have different mindsets. They perceive it as foolishness to pay thousands of dollars for getting illogically prepared paintings.

8. Celebrating Different Days

The era where boomers grew up was simple and free of show-offs. In contrast, nowadays, you will find that every person arranges large parties with little success. According to the boomers, the trend of spending a lot of money on celebrations should be changed. Many boomers have made fun of the people celebrating special days like Mother's Day.

9. Paying Subscription Fees

In the digital world, everything demands a subscription. Even on the home appliances you buy after paying full cost, you are often forced to pay monthly subscription fees. If you don't pay, your product or service will stop working. Boomers have found this rule infuriating and hilarious at the same time to pay for the product they have already bought.

10. Following the Keto Diet

Health-conscious people are well aware of the risks associated with high-carb intake, so they have excluded sugar-rich food from their meal routine. But boomers are not ready to believe in any concept, forcing them to avoid natural foods like potatoes. They perceive it as nonsense to exclude heavy and nutrient-rich edibles from the diet plan.

11. Watching Vlogs
