especially between young people and their parents. These differences stem from older and younger people not understanding each other because of their differences in experiences, opinions, habits, and behavior.

"The cultural generation gap between the young and the old can exacerbate the competition for resources because the rise in the number of senior dependents is occurring more rapidly among whites than among minorities, for whom dependent children is a larger issue."

Give me wifi

Apparently, a whopping 40% of generation Z said that they’d prioritise working wifi over a functioning bathroom. But if the bathroom’s out of order, where are you meant to do your scrolling?

Good hair day

According to a study that appears on Statista, people aged 50 to 64 spend twice the proportion of their average household income on hair and cosmetic products than those in their 20s do. It must be nice to be able to afford all the luxury stuff and have a lovely pension to rely on, hey?

Ripping yarnsIlustration of young woman with ripped jeans and quote: 'About half'

About half of the population of twentysomethings have jeans with purposeful rips in them. Not one single person over 50 has ever understood why. Annoyingly, 87% of people over 50 will always “cheekily” remind people in their 20s that there are holes in their jeans – 0% of twentysomethings will ever laugh.*

Biting the hand

According to a study on Statista, fiftysomethings are 36% more likely to get bitten by a dog than twentysomethings.

Mind the gap

The gender pay gap is actually way more prevalent among older workers, with those in their 50s averaging a 30% difference in pay, compared with a difference of 9% among 22- to 29-year-olds, according to a study that appears on Statista.

Lotta bottle

People between the ages of 50 and 64 spend a higher proportion of their average weekly household outlay on alcoholic drink, tobacco, and narcotics than people in their 20s, according to a study that appears on Statista.

Question everything

All 20-somethings truly want to know the reasoning behind things in order to be more educated about the world around us. This is not helped by 100% (yes, 100%) of parents answering any query of “why?” with a stern “because I said so”.*

Out and proud

According to the Office for National Statistics, people under 34 are more likely to identify as lesbian, gay or bisexual than people over 50. A great sign that youth are tolerant and accepting, so if anyone in their 50s did want to come out, they’d have a trusted ally in generation Z.

Storm warning

According to a 2018 analysis by Gallup, 56% of those aged over 55 care about climate change. What’s up with the other 44%? Happy swinging around your non-recyclable plastic for future generations to use to build their first homes atop piles and piles of landfill? Many thanks.

Good neighbors

Apparently 77% of people aged 50 to 64 speak to neighbors at least once a month, according to a study on Statista. This compares with 62% of those under 34, who are probably too busy worrying about job prospects, financial ruin and the burning of the planet, and everything on it to say a quick hello to Alex at number three.

Lost in translation

Approximately 99.999% of time spent together between parents and children is used to slightly change stories and anecdotes to hide the real truth from both parties.*
