People, especially the younger generation, might believe that with technology and changing times, life has gotten easier. But in reality, many are of the opinion that life was less complicated in the bygone era, when we didn't rely on technology all the time. We often think about how the older generation born in the 20th century, who are referred to as "boomers" on the internet, had to adapt to unprecedented changes in society post World War II. But still, this generation had ample time on their hands to spend quality moments in nature and with their family. They had issues to tackle, such as low rate of unemployment, and inflation but this generation also witnessed rapid growth in the American economy. With the evolving country, a lot of traditions and practices were lost in time. The boomers (born between 1945 to 1965) often reminisce about the vibe of their time - the cool retro music, vintage cars, old-school printed menus in restaurants and handwritten letters. 

History professor named Dr. Eladio B. Bobadilla asked Twitter users, "What makes you go - 'I am with the boomers on this one?'" and in no time, netizens jumped in to share their complaints and revisit those nostalgic times when things used to be simpler. The tweet has been viewed over 70 million times since it was posted on June 2023.
