Man Explains How Different Generations Arrive at People’s Houses and He is SPOT ON!
UK comedian Jake Lambert has called out some generational stereotypes that are astoundingly accurate. They all centre on how different generations arrive at other people’s homes, and how they greet the people they have come to see once they arrive.
Think of how your mum, your nanna, or your bestie shows up at your home. Does this sound like them?

Told ya. Absolutely on the money with that observation!
Here’s a recap for those who can’t listen in:
“You’ve basically got Boomers, who will turn up completely unannounced any time from about 7 o’clock in the morning, and they will knock on your door just slightly louder than the police using a battering ram, carrying out a house raid.
And then you’ve got Gen X. They would have made the plans well in advance and they would have also checked in a couple of days before just to make sure the plans are definitely still happening. You see, Gen X are the forgotten generation and they are so scarred by this title they would have assumed that you’d have forgotten not only about the plans but about their very existence.
Millennials would have hoped that the plans had been cancelled, there’s no reason a Millennial will actually want to come to your house. They will arrive late but they will text you to say that they are on their way, just as they are about to get into the shower. And a Millennial will never knock on your door. You’ll just get a text either saying “here” or “outside” and that’s your cue to go and let them in.
Similarly, Gen Z will never actually knock but the chances are they won’t have to. They would have been documenting the entire journey from their house to yours, maybe even on Facetime using this angle as they go along for some reason. Either that or they’ll just send a picture of your front door or a selfie of them outside it. And again, just like the Millennial that’s your cue to go and rescue them from the outside world.”
Comments from the Twitterverse agreed wholeheartedly.

There’s two types of boomers – one who will bash the door in and wait for you to answer, and the other who will tap lightly on the door and walk straight into the house and announce themselves….

Watched this mentally working my way through the generations of my family.
Scarily, horribly, painfully accurate 🤦♀️😂
