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.

I don't think Millenials should get the grief that's been thrown their way...but there are plenty of Baby Boomers who don't have a home that is paid off. Wages have remained stagnant for most workers for the past 40 years. Don't yell at boomers, elect different people to congress and the white house so the 1% don't get all the gains of the last 40 years.

they were smart and they earned it. The 1% doesn't "steal" your money.Nor do they keep you from doing what they did. And they pay about 37% in taxes. Granted, a lot of them started out with huge cash flow to start with, but thats cause they inherited from people who Also worked hard and invested well. There's plenty of millennials out there that have made astounding amounts of money...Amazon, Facebook, Apple, Google, You Tube..how come no one yells at them for being stinking rich?

Well maybe you should go out and earn the money, you whiny, cry baby millennial. You do not deserve anything, you are entitled to nothing, you have to actually work hard to get somewhere, not just sit at a computer all day. The only ones I ever see throwing a tantrum is your generation, and it's over every little meaningless thing, nothing important. You have done nothing important, you have made no difference in this country, well actually you have made it far worse. But eventually you will fade away, the baby boomers will be remembered forever as the people who built this country, you however will not be remembered.

Baby Boomers got a huge help cause they inherited money from the previous generation. Thats not as likely to happen this time around..unless maybe Trump is re elected and the stock market stays strong.So millennials vote for Trump...it will keep your inheritances strong and safe.

Sorry to inform you, but even the baby boomers had nothing until they were in their 40's either, and they worked 2 jobs, too. My parents didn't pay off their house until they were in their 60's, and we didn't have cable until I was in college. It's life-almost everyone lives the first 40-50 years of their life with not much, just get on with it. Complaining won't change anything bout that.

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'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.
