Before and after the work-hard-play-harder Generation X came two sets of people who seem to be at constant war with each other. Baby Boomers and Millenials have their differences and are prepared to defend their colliding points of view by all means. At times, this Millennials vs. Boomers conflict gets really emotional, and it seems that both are prepared to take it to the streets.

Baby Boomers are typically considered to be born between the mid-1940s and mid-1960s. They were the result of the end of World War II when birth rates spiked. The Boomers became healthier and wealthier than any generation before them. They are thought to be work-centric, extremely hardworking and motivated by position, perks, and prestige. Mentally focused and competitive, the generation grew up in turbulent times (consider the Cold War and the Cuban Missile Crisis or the assassinations of John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr.). Because of that, Boomers began to fight for social, economic and political changes. Idealistic and uncynical, this generation was able to buy a house and a car, to chill on a beach, instead of fighting a war.

However, since the Baby Boomers sacrificed a great deal to get where they are, this generation believes that others - mainly, the Millennials - should pay more dues. Millennial generation (also known as Generation Y) are people born between roughly 1980 and 2000. They are thought to possess a great deal of confidence and tolerance, but also entitlement and narcissism. Refusing to comply, they blame the Baby Boomers for wrecking the economy and having zero understanding of the Millennial definition of work-life balance, necessary in the workplace. To shed some light on the conflict, Bored Panda has decided to collect some of the most memorable comebacks the Millennials threw back ant the Baby Boomers. Some are lighthearted and funny, while others try to reason and inform. Scroll down to check our list of Millennial jokes and their clapbacks in this Baby Boomers vs. Millennials war.

Where I live in Oregon, it's the Baby Boomers who are out PLAYING Pokémon Go, including me and my husband. Our 18-yo son rolls his eyes at us. He and his friends think no one plays Pokémon Go anymore so I had to take a picture of the 80+ people at a raid a few weeks ago. Plenty of people are still playing but because it's not the kids themselves, they think NO one is playing.

I am 32 and I have never had a permanent job even though I spent over 5 years to get an education to become a chef. Because you can't work in a kitchen here in Finland if you don't have the chef's education.Then I watch a TV docomentaries about famous chefs and they tell how they started working at a kitchen when they were 13 years old and they did non stop chef's job over 50 years and now they are millionaires and they have many Michelin stars and restaurants all over the world...I just struggle with the unemployment benefits money (500-700 € per month).

I'm 15 and facing the same problem. Getting amused looks by my grandmother and co-students for saying that if I don't accomplish my goal to get a job in field zoology, I would be comfortable becoming an English-Bulgarian translator of scientific books. What the hell is wrong with them? I'm just trying to be innovative and different. I'm looking for any satisfactory(I refuse to work in an office. I'd rather be poorer, than a prisoner of a job I hate) career path possible, that would bring me modest but sufficient salary to live with, while they either struggle(the former one)or are completely dependent on technology(the second ones).

I see this as something good. We are slowly eliminating the problems in society, starting from the most pressing. Now that they got equal rights for men and women, we can focus on something else, like gay rights. Yes, the discrimination of the LGBTQ community is a lesser problem than the descrimination of women was. But thats Good! That's progress! Why should we stop trying to help and fix, just because the problems aren't as big any more?

I always tip more than that, especially for a haircut. So the cut costs $12, figure the stylist can do 3 per hour (if they are always busy), bringing an income of $36/hr. That sounds pretty good until you realize that they have to rent the chair, pay for their own equipment and supplies, they have to spend more time & money on their own appearance (because who wants a haircut from someone who isn't put-together enough to do their own hair nicely). In my area, a stylist actually gets a check for around $9/hr BEFORE TAXES. I know my stylist just had a baby because she kept getting more and more pregnant until she suddenly got less pregnant, and that is sure as hell not cheap. I round to $20.

Okay, BusLady, your generation is the single richest one in the history of Humanity. Not only in cash, but assets. You had the ability to buy a home on minimum wage, afford a college education, buy a car and hundreds of other luxuries that the huge majority of my generation can only dream of. I've ridden 83 miles in a day on my bike, not because I wanted to, but because I simply can't afford a car, and there was no sale on train tickets.
