It is not new for people to think that they are cooler than the generation that came before them. They also consider themselves wiser comparatively.  It is true for all generations. But yet, sometimes we accept that the generations before us were cooler than us in some aspects. One person on Twitter @profbobadilla asked others, “What makes you go, ‘I’m with the boomers on this one’?” It is an interesting question and the answers that followed are amazing and insightful.

From printouts of photos to having a proper sleep schedule to early dinners and plastic straws, people were nostalgic for more peaceful times. Some even mentioned how earlier they did not talk to a "robot" when they called customer service and that there was a more direct human conversation and less involvement of technology.
