This story will show you how beautiful it can be when two generations live together in the same house and share their lives with each other.
We've all heard a lot of stories about how different the millennials are from Gen Z. The former finds it hard to relate to many things related to the latter which includes the slang. A millennial woman recently opened up about what it's like having two Gen Z sisters. NatalieAnn—who goes by @ann_natalie on TikTok—posted a video talking about her personal experience living with her two Gen Z sisters.
She starts off by asking a question to her viewers which says, "Is it just me or do you sometimes feel completely disconnected when it comes to the Gen Z slang?" She goes on to explain how she and her sister are from different generations, a fact that the sisters absolutely love to remind Ann. That said, she starts talking about how both her sisters are her biggest hype-men. Giving an example, she says, "You know, I send a picture to my sisters of my outfit and they'll be like 'Slay Queen' or they'll be like, 'You dropped this' and they put like a queen emoji." She strongly believes that her sisters are her biggest cheerleaders and a lot of it is owed to the fact that they're Gen Z.
She then went on to narrate another incident. She said, "So I was telling my sisters how I went out the other day and I saw somebody that I really just didn't want to engage with." At this point, her sister interrupts her and says something which Ann doesn't entirely understand. The Gen Z sister says, "You should do it for the plot." Ann's immediate response to this statement is by asking "What plot?" Not to mention, it does seem like a valid question for a person who isn't that much into slang. She further says that every time she goes to her sisters and tells them that she has something to tell them, they immediately say, "Spill the tea!!" At this point, all Ann is thinking is, "I'm like, I'm ready to pour the whole pot. Pouring the whole pot of tea is what I'm about to do."
According to her, Gen Z cares a lot about mental health and she ain't wrong. However, they can be too conclusive sometimes. She explains that there are times when she goes to her sisters to talk about some stupid problem and they go like, "It's giving depression." Ann then exclaims, "I'm like, or it's just giving what I'm feeling in the moment." She says that while the phrase "it's giving" is quite common in Gen Z slang, she doesn't entirely understand it as well as she'd like.
She ends her video by saying, "It is never a dull moment when it comes to talking to the Gen Zs." The comments section of this video was relatable and funny too, and they did a great job of expressing it. @Cuz0ndruh expressed their desire to see this generation all grown up and said, "As a Millennial, I look forward to Gen Z aging." There were also a lot of millennials who didn't get GenZ and a lot of Gen Zs who didn't get millennials. While one viewer @psilol said, "Gen Z slang makes much sense, I really like it," another viewer @hillibillybaby88 said, "I'm Gen Z, and I feel disconnected to Gen Z slang." It's this kind of friendly banter that makes this whole situation much better and kinder.
